About the organization

Jan Sahas aims to eliminate sexual violence and forced labour, with a focus on the most excluded social groups. Started in the year 2000 as a community-based entity working to end manual scavenging, today, we work intensively across 50+ districts in 10 states across northern India. We operate through ~750 full-time staff and ~5,000 village-based volunteers.

Despite our size, we remain a grassroots organization; 90% of our staff belong to communities and groups we serve – survivors of sexual violence and forced labour, single women, and Dalit and tribal communities. Enabling people, we serve to lead the fight against exclusion is central to our ethos.

Jan Sahas is committed to protecting and promoting the rights of socially excluded communities. Our work operates at the intersection of caste, class, and gender, and we are deeply passionate about ending all forms of exclusion, including slavery, sexual violence, and identity-based discrimination. We aim to integrate our values – equity, dignity, transformative leadership, co-creation, and integrity – in our work as well as our interaction with each other.
