Jan Sarokar believes in people’s wisdom. We believe in the power of individual women and girls, and women and girls as a group. We focus on, and start with women and girls and put their needs and priorities at the centre of what we do. This helps to frame our interventions and ensure the steps we take address the challenges they are facing.

Through our work, we contribute to achieving several Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The United Nations has drafted the SDGs as a blueprint for achieving a better and more sustainable future for all. We contribute directly to four of these seventeen Sustainable Development Goals.

Our added value to the Sustainable Development Goals

Good Health and Well-being :

Jan Sarokar   mission is to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all. Our holistic approach, and our efforts to make sure that no one is overlooked in the process, contributes directly to this goal.

Good sexual and reproductive health is important for women’s general health and wellbeing. It is central to their ability to make choices and decisions about their lives, including when, or whether, considering having children.

Sexual and reproductive health is not only about physical wellbeing – it includes the right to healthy and respectful relationships, health services that are inclusive, safe and appropriate, access to accurate information, effective and affordable methods of contraception and access to timely support and services in relation to unplanned pregnancy.

Jan Sarokar firmly believes in gender equality at all level, means communities benefit if  women and girls have equal access to education, healthcare, work, and representation in political and economic decision-making processes. That is what we strive for in our programmes.

Gender-based violence is a phenomenon deeply rooted in gender inequality, and continues to be one of the most notable human rights violations within all societies. Gender-based violence is violence directed against a person because of their gender. Both women and men experience gender-based violence but the majority of victims are women and girls.
