About Us

Jan Vikas Society is a registered non-profit organization based in Indore, in the state of Madhya Pradesh in central India. Janvikas works for the integral development of the underprivileged and marginalized people, who are deprived of their right to live as dignified and responsible citizens because of their ignorance, illiteracy and poverty.

Janvikas through its activities in the cities of Indore and Bhopal pays special attention to the welfare of the unorganized labourers, rag picking women and children, domestic workers, unemployed youth, street children, migrant and nomadic people.

We collaborate with everyone making effort to create an environment of justice, peace and integrity of creation.




Empowerment of the poor and the marginalized people in the society is a main concern in all our activities. Thus Janvikas has chosen to support the cause of the weaker sections in society like the rag picking women and children, domestic workers, unemployed youth and migrants. In this context our effort has been to create awareness and instil self-respect in the people and empower them to address the evils of oppression in the society which they face from within and without.


Janvikas runs Bridge School Centers to help the children who have dropped out of school or engaged in child labour to pursue their studies and enable them to write exams and get enrolled in the normal school to complete their studies. One month to three months career oriented skill training programs are provided for the youth


Integrity of creation is basic in all our developmental activities. We care for the environment through promotion of utilization of solar energy, training in compost making and organic farming, awareness creation on decentralized waste management and disposal and plastic recycling.
