NGO Profile :
Established in 1997, Janakalyan strives towards empowerment of underprivileged sections of society in the remote districts of Karnataka. They focus on mother, child and poor farmers of deprived communities.

Their ‘Development Model’ focuses on 7E’s:

  • Jan Jal (Environment): To address the issue of acute water supply in operational areas and avoid farmer suicides, Janakalyan introduced Water Banks to store excess water for irrigation later. Janakalyan has been piloting the “More Crop Per Drop” model since 2001. With financial assistance from Deshpande Foundation 140 water banks were created in the last 5 years. Rooftop Water Harvesting Program is introduced in drought prone areas to address the drinking water problems.
  • Jan Krishi (Employment):  With support of NABARD, Janakalyan has initiated Intensified Integrated Farming System (IIFS) to resolve the issue of water availability and soil degradation. Its activities are vegetable cultivation, vermicomposting and promoting the concept of System of Rice Intensification (SRI) for enhancing productivity and increasing area under cultivation.
  • Jan Sanghatan (Empowerment): It functions by formation of Self-Help Groups, Agriculture Interest Groups, Micro Entrepreneurs Club, etc. and training is provided to leaders of such groups. A leadership development training program for Minority women called Nai Roshni is started. Janakalyan reaches out to community members and links them to Government.
  • Jan Udyog (Entrepreneurship): Along with Sasakawa India Leprosy Foundation (SILF), efforts are made to ensure livelihood options for leprosy affected persons like vegetable cultivation, chilly pounding, and pan shops.
  • Jan Shiksha (Education): By ensuring post-matric education by way of scholarships to refugee children and education in Maa Sarada Pre University College, reduction in child marriages/labour is observed. Distribution of education kits help in reducing dropouts. Artisan kits are given to parents to earn and educate their children.
  • Jan Raksha (Health): As part of the Sindhanur Rehabilitation Project, Janakalyan intervened to combat dengue and dog bites in Raichur. As part of Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan, hundreds of toilets are constructed in remote villages and hygiene kits have been distributed.
  • Jan Shakti (Energy): It aims at creating awareness about energy conservation, using biogas plant, solar heaters/dryers and smokeless chullahs. Interventions have been initiated to mitigate effects of global warming.
