We strive to enable women and children lead informed and safer lives
Joint Women’s Programme envisions itself as a movement of and by women and children seeking the freedom to express their identity. Being one of the earliest advocates for women and child rights in India, JWP began its journey in 1977, with an objective to secure and empower women and children from violence and social atrocities. We seek to create a new society of equal partnership between women and men while ensuring access to education and protection for children.
JWP promotes issue-based campaigns and networking at the regional and national levels among women’s groups and others. Through our programmes, we reach out to government departments, law enforcing agencies, civil society, grassroot organizations and committed individuals to ensure that everyone avail their basic rights.
Based in New Delhi, JWP implements programmes across several Indian states. We emphasize on grassroot women organization and community building in rural as well as urban areas. We extend our call to all members of society and urge participation in our attempt to uphold human rights.
COVID Relief – Sampark aur Samvaad
With limited resources available to us, we have already been distributing essential supplies to some districts around us.
Till date, we have already sent relief packages to over 10,000 people in the surrounding areas with the help of some local partnerships. Based on our interaction with the local members of the village, we want to now focus on providing vegetables, milk and milk powder and bi-monthly distribution of biodegradable cotton sanitary napkins.
