JRH RESPONSE to COVID-19 CRISIS
Jesuit Conference of India
A commitment to engage with the community on pertinent issues including providing quality education to all, supporting the youth to be future ready, living with awareness to take care of our environment, caring for migrants, establishing peace and harmony, working for people’s entitlement and responding to disasters.
Jesuit Conference of India (JCI) registered as “not for profit organisation” in India, has been doing pioneering and exemplary work in areas of education, social development and empowerment. We are a part of an international organisation of Jesuits with a presence in the South Asian Countries. From its very beginning, way back in 1978, JCI is committed towards the upliftment of the underprivileged.
Based on the understanding that quality education leads to all future development, Sankalp supports educational rights of children from marginalised and disadvantaged communities across South Asia, especially India. A Jesuit Collective initiative, it envisions a society as “Human Capital with democratic values and scientific outlook for transformation” .
Under the Jesuit collective’s flagship skill development program, JesuiTec, we equip school dropouts and unemployed youth with relevant skills so that they can integrate into the mainstream workforce. Among its components are Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs),
Vocational Training Institutes (VTIs), Community Colleges (CCs), and short-term training programs for the unemployed.
As the world increasingly witnesses inequality, violence, intolerance, hatred, ethnocentrism, majoritarianism and disregard for the very dignity of human life, Peace and Reconciliation Jesuit initiative answers to the call of “Peace, Justice, Sustainable Development and Well being of all sections of people”.
Migrant Assistance and Information Network (MAIN) reaches out to the distress migrant workers both in inter- state and intra-state. It is essentially a partnership model which works in collaboration with individuals, NGOs / CSOs / CBOs, institutions, religious congregations, dioceses, networks, etc, at various levels.
