It takes guts to walk the path that breaks away from the crowd ,  it takes guts to give up self interest to serve others. We bring to you such rare individuals amongst us who have gone beyond their call to make a difference in the community, these are individuals who touch our hearts in ways unfathomable. You shall find innumerable such individuals here. All we expect from you is share these stories of life and work, of possibility and struggle  with 10 of your friends.

The change starts with YOU and spreads around YOU . take the first step towards that change, inspire 10 others if a narrative touches your heart.

To provide basic rights for all, we work by eliminating situations which give rise to exploitation of vulnerable and marginalized groups and to start a movement for a people friendly society (Jan Mitra Samaj) through an inter-institutional approach. This means that the goal of our activities is two-fold: First, to have a strong grassroots organization to work for democratic rights of those in marginalized communities and second, to create the structure and dynamics to receive the assistance of a national and international institutions.
