Who are we? JMS is an autonomous grass-roots collective of Dalit Women Rural Wage Labourers, solely owned, controlled and managed by Dalit Women Community Leaders in Raichur district.
Our Philosophy: JMS firmly believes that all human development is ultimately about living life with dignity, autonomy and equality. JMS, the Dalit Women’s Collective has been tirelessly striving since 1999, to address the societal barriers to dignity such as caste, gender, class, sexual orientation based discrimination, violence and structural inequalities that keeps some parts of society in perpetual poverty and indignity. Pathways of JMS are – Empowerment through critical awareness, human rights education, collective voice and community enterprises for self-reliance.
Milestones (1999-2017): liberation of 1000 child and bonded labourers (girls and boys) directed to mainstream education through an intensive alternative education programme Chilipili Child Labour School run by JMS; reduction of caste-based violence on women; effective implementation of MNREGA and flow of over 5 crore rupees of income to 3000 Dalit households; terracotta jewellery which has international acclaim produced through its enterprise ‘Chiguru’ providing livelihood to 25 households since 2005; national and state awards by National Women’s Commission to JMS leaders.
