Our Mission

To enable and empower women through participation and involvement in meaningful changes through their communities. To prevent child and women exploitation. To undertake in activities supporting human rights and social security, through support services, training, research and advocacies.

The Need

Jagruti has been at the forefront of mobilizing women, children, disabled and Dalits to support their rights and needs. The issues they address are Right to Food, Right to Health, Right to Work, Domestic Violence and Nutrition & Health of Children.

The Solution

There will be regular communication trainings and meetings to help participants address the major problem of patriarchy and as to how it is contributing to the overall powerful tool of exploitation. There are also leadership and human rights trainings that will deal with the Principles of Feminism.

Our Impact

Jagruti since its inception has given a free space for women to discuss and debate about issues that concern them. Jagrut Mahila Okkuta, a people's organization was formed and now became part of several smaller groups and networks in the villages, where issues concerning women are discussed.

Jagruti was registered in November 1998 as a Non-Government Organization (NGO) working with an emphasis on gender agenda. Jagruti works to develop 22 villages in Khanapur Taluk of Belgaum District, Karnataka State, India. Jagruti’s mission is to work with the poor and excluded in their struggle to eradicate poverty, patriarchy, and injustice. Jagruti advocates and campaigns for the dignity and well-being of the oppressed and marginalized, and is committed to the rights of the those most disadvantaged. Jagruti has also formed a women’s organization ‘Jagrut Mahila Vakkutta’ which is a platform for rural women to raise issues concerning their daily lives.

Give2Asia’s support has been instrumental in setting up an affordable drug outlet in the town of Dharwad. This October 2020 the drug outlet will complete two years of its operation.

Jagruti is ready for the next phase which is “Awareness Building Regarding Rational Use of Medicines”, an education campaign among consumers. This program intends to further strengthen the existing affordable drug outlet and fill the gaps by working towards educating the people – the consumer, as to how medicines can be made rationally used and to bring awareness among the consumers regarding scientific and proper use of medicine.
