ASHA – Association for Social and Human Awareness
Jharkhand, being one the richest states, in terms of its mineral ores and natural resources, has the potential to sustain all of its population along with support to other states. But it is the most unfortunate that people of Jharkhand are still suffering socially, economically, technologically and politically. Inaccessibility of livelihood opportunities, health services, educational initiatives, infrastructure developments and other development initiatives at the door step, are forcing them to be migrated or trafficked. Those who do not dare to migrate, jumbles in the superstitions and making their life no less than hell.
Witchcraft, domestic violence, unemployment, exploitation, trafficking, child labour, sexual abuse, illiteracy… There is no end of the problems and people are getting hopeless day by day. There is no concrete mechanism for their development so that they could come out of the darkness.
To overrule the darkness prevailing in the lives of people of Jharkhand, several organizations are standing in rows and working with all their effort.
