Jan Sahas Social Development Society
Jan Sahas in Hindi means 'courage of the people', and it is this courage that has
driven the organization and its work. It has fought on behalf of manual scavengers,
bonded labourers, victims of atrocities, Dalit and tribal women and children, women
forced into sex work, and survivors of rape and sexual abuse. In response to the
2012 Delhi gangrape, Jan Sahas started Nirbhaya Abhiyan, a programme that provides
shelter, counselling and legal aid to survivors of rape and sexual assault.
