Some of their 2012-13 activities were as follows:
JCT Jaag: JCT provides material and financial aid to orphans in the fishing villages of the Raigad district. VHF wireless sets were made available to fishing villages whose communities have lost lives and property in the past due to stormy weather. They spread awareness on hygiene and prevention of HIV/AIDS
JCT Ashraya: A community canteen which is run by women in financial and social crisis for underprivileged women and children. The income generated goes towards each woman’s salary, as well as towards women empowerment projects.
JCT Sewing Centre: 63 women and girls are currently registered. A sewing machine is given to every outstanding and deserving student upon completion of the course.
Education: Janvi completed construction of a multi-purpose building. It is used for conducting computer classes for children, running an English medium Kindergarten class with 70 students, women’s English literacy classes and afternoon sessions for children on drawing and games.
Sports: Janvi supports team sports and physical activity by providing sports gear for cricket, football, volleyball and badminton. They conduct karate classes for children conducted by a paid instructor. Sports tournaments are held to encourage teamwork.
Medical Care: Supported by a doctor and other medical staff, Janvi runs medical camps free of cost to the community. Janvi escorts and pays for patients who require further hospital care.
Environment and Community Development: The organisation encourages the creation of green spaces by ridding large areas of garbage, planting trees and flowers, educating children about nature and instilling a sense of pride for the community.
