Jawahar Jyoti Bal Vikas Kendra (JJBVK) was established to cater to the needs of the deprived, the handicapped, girl children, and the elderly. At the same time it works to mobilise stakeholders on different issues, including sustainable development and alternative livelihood opportunities.
JJBVK started as a voluntary organisation working for overall developmental of deprived people at the grass root level through its various sustainable development activities. It has its own dedicated team of social workers, volunteers, professionals, technical experts, academicians, and female activists.
The organisation believes that the deprived population can only be made to work if they are organised in a proper and effective way. For this, JJBVK takes support from different groups of institutions like Gram Sabhas, Mahila Mandals, Self-Help Groups, Federations, Cluster Level Committees, and sub committees.
The organisation gets most of its funding as grants from Child Rights and You (CRY). Income from CRY ranged between 80% to 85% in FY12 to FY15, but fell to a low of 62% in FY14.
