Empowered communities with the sustainable livelihood.

Our Philosophy


JSW Foundation follows an organizational philosophy of ‘Janam se Janani Tak’. This ensures that as an organization, we cover the entire life cycle of a

woman through strategic and timed interventions during their most vulnerable stages of pregnancy, up to the age of 6 and during adolescence.

The Foundation’s intervention with children under the age of six focuses on eradicating malnutrition and providing quality education.

With Adolescents, the foundation focuses on eradication of anaemia, continued education and skill development.

During pregnancy, we ensure adequate care during pregnancy and institutional deliveries for all women in our area of operation.

At the same time the Foundation ensures the sustainability of these inputs by working on factors such as clean water, sanitation and better agricultural productivity.
