Why JKGSA Started!
JKGSA seeks to establish a society based on principles of social justice, equity of opportunities, and growth with balance. For this, it advocates promoting socio economic development of people irrespective of their gender, religious orientation, ethnicity, or caste. While it focuses on economic development but it furthermore believes that the development of health and education services is not only complementary to economic development but also instrumental to it.
A society in which, women do not have rights and respect equal to their male counterparts, and in which they live in constant fear of violence and harassment, cannot be progressive. The status of women and girls determines the degree of growth opportunities in society. Hence, women empowerment and prevention of violence against women are among the core objectives of JKGSA. Gender equity and women empowerment are also seen as cross-cutting concerns in all the interventions. Children have the first call on our society and JKGSA believes that they are not the citizen of the future but are actually the “present” of our society. They have the first right to love, care and support. They deserve a life free from violence, free from toils of hard and hazardous labor, and free from biases of any kind. Rehabilitation of child labor and ensuring a secure, happy, and dignified life for children is an issue of paramount concern to JKGSA.
JKGSA seeks to sensitize people toward environmental concerns through all its initiatives.
No sustainable socio-economic progress can be achieved by society at the cost of environmental degradation. Environmental resources are the life blood of our civilization. They provide the vital energy which sustains all forms of life. Thus, while JKGSA is concerned with improving agricultural productivity, improving food security, and providing livelihood, it also focuses on ensuring that none of its techniques are intrusive towards nature. We align with nature and not against it.
