JMS Sanchalakis awarded for community leadership

Narsamma and Sunandamma, senior women leaders of Jagrutha Mahila Sanghatan,  received  Bodhivardhana award on the occasion of Ambedkar’s Jayanthi, on April 14, 2017 in Bengaluru. This is a recognition of their relentless community leadership for over a decade and their contribution to make Madiga Dalit Womens’ voices heard.

Narasamma, 38, hails from Kotnekal village of Manvi taluka (Raichur district) and has been the strong pillar for building JMS collective. She is a leader who is applauded for her insights and frontline leadership.

Sunandamma, 37, belongs to Amareshwara Camp, Manvi Taluka (Raichur District). She is active in JMS as a community leader and sanchalaki (co-convener) of JMS for the last 10 years. She is also trained as community health worker at JMS.

This award is accepted by JMS as recognition of Dalit women’s assertion for their space and rights. Drawing strength from this acknowledgement, Jagrutha Mahila Sanghatane continues its journey for social Justice.
