Uplifting livelihoods of the vulnerable section of Rural India

We think that community inclusion can be thought of once the community members have livelihood security and a stable source of income. We implement our livelihoods programmes in some of the poorest districts of Madhya Pradesh. We work intensively with the tribal communities like Gonds, Baiga, Sahariya who are extremely poor people in and face risks which also include risks posed with climate change. An increase in the incidence and severity of climate- related disasters are negatively impacting on crop yields and the availability of food for subsistence farmers. At the same time, people are increasingly migrating to crowded urban areas in search of more secure livelihoods and are facing increased competition for income-earning opportunities. We work with the rural communities directly and help them design and implement variety of activities that range from climate-smart agriculture techniques in rural settings, to technical skills-based training and in rural Madhya Pradesh.

Tackling root causes of poverty by addressing health and Nutrition problems

India had highest number of under-five deaths, 1.2 million deaths out of 5.9 million (2015). As per the results from the first phase of National Family Health Survey (NFHS-4), 2015–2016, under-five mortality rate was highest in rural area of Madhya Pradesh (MP), 69/1000 live birth as compared to urban areas, 52/1000 live birth. A 2020 study from the World Economic Forum found "Some 220 million Indians sustained on an expenditure level of less than Rs 32 / day.

For most of our more than 20 years in operation, we have been leading the way with dedicated work with the rural community of Madhya Pradesh to improve their health. Most of journey has been undertaken voluntarily by us to ensure the wellbeing of the most vulnerable communities, while ensuring they obtain the knowledge and resources to keep themselves and their families healthy and nourished.

With the support from Indo German project SENU (Securing Nutrition Enhancing resilience) Jan Madhyam is supporting in the identification of Common land in Madhya Pradesh along with MGNREGA to promote the development of Community nutrition gardens. The land for the promotion of CNG is being demarcated with the use of GIS and Remote sensing. Post verification of the land the proposal of the same plot is put up to MGNREGA (technical and administrative sanction) for implementation. In the implementation process SHG members are engaged for the management of the plot and a maintenance allowance is also provided. The SHG members are given usufruct rights for cultivating vegetables in the plot. The vegetables are used for bridging the gap of their nutritional requirement and also helps in developing a co sharing mechanism with the SHG members. We are working in four different districts of Madhya Pradesh namely Barwani, Chattarpur, Khandwa and Sheopur for identifying the suitable site for developing Community Nutrition Gardens under the GIZ -SENU.


Strengthening Rural livelihoods with improved skills and financial inclusion services

Economic enabling environment entails the inclusive financial system. Though there is widespread of Jan dhan Yojana but penetration of microfinance all over the country to large population is still not taken place and huge population is below poverty line and financially excluded. Jan Madhyam started its intervention in microfinance and skills program which has been one of its key entry-level interventions among the full set of Jan Madhyam’s economic programs in Madhya Pradesh. It serves to bring the poorest of the poor, especially in remote regions across Madhya Pradesh, into the fold with financial inclusion services. We have played instrumental role in mobilising 3526 nos SHG groups in Madhya Pradesh since 2014.

Education is at the heart of development and is key to breaking the poverty cycle

Education is at the heart of development and is key to breaking the poverty cycle, and improving health, nutrition, income and opportunities for all children. At least 250 million school-age children worldwide currently do not know the basics in reading and mathematics. This poor level of literacy drives school drop-out and exam failure and blocks students from progressing to secondary school. Ultimately, it puts millions of children at a cruel disadvantage for the rest of their lives.

In 2011, literacy rate of Madhya Pradesh is 70.6 per cent where the male literacy rate is 80.53 and the female ration is 60.02. During the last decade the rise in literacy rate of Madhya Pradesh is 6.9 percentage points.

Female and male literacy rates in 2011 are 60.0 per cent and 80.5 per cent respectively. In 2001, female literacy rate was 50.3 per cent whereas male literacy rate was 76.1 per cent. The rise in female literacy is 9.7 percentage points whereas male literacy rate has increased by 4.5 percentage points. In Census 2001, Madhya Pradesh stood 24th in the country in literacy whereas in 2011 it has slipped to 28th position, same as in female literacy rate. Jan Madhyam is targeting to improve the education system especially in rural areas of Madhya Pradesh by supporting poor school children with additional tutorials to cope up with the syllabus and making learning fun.


Setting effective Planning mechanism in place using GIS and Remote Sensing

Geographic Information Technology has developed at a remarkable pace over the past two decades and will play a key role in development of India in the 21st Century. India is developing in a very fast pace and so is Rural India. It’s time for all decision makers to discuss the appropriateness of GIS technology and its applications to rural development and planning, land information systems and agricultural development. GIS is the only stable solution to effectively plan for villages and link the same with the development schemes one of them being MGNREGA. This will also provide a suitable solution for the use of GIS for educational infrastructure development with special emphasis on rural sector in India.

  • Jan Madhyam is closely working with MPSEGC in Madhya Pradesh, under MGNREGA for effective planning in saturated mode for all the 22700 Gram Panchayats using GIS and remote sensing tools. This initiative has been supported by GIZ-India, under the MoRD- GIZ bilateral project WASCA. Under WASCA II, Jan Madhyam will look forward in further scaling up our initiative taken up in Madhya Pradesh.
  • Jan Madhyam Has also been working on providing technical backstopping to develop Composite Water Resource Management plan in all the districts of Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Telangana. This included both the Components of Surface water conservation as well as the ground water recharge. A Paradigm change in the concept of RD has taken place; where working on sustainability, for the availability of ground water during the summer months has been ensured with the help of the technical GIS based planning mechanism.
  • Our Organisation has also worked on developing effective planning mechanism in the forest buffer zone of the Panna Tiger reserve to reduce the impact of Human – wildlife conflict. This required a pre-feasibility study on the various human wildlife conflicts of the region, the various spiritual believes of the tribal population and also the needs of the community. This planning mechanism not only encompasses the planning within the revenue area but also along the boundary and in the nearby areas to provide maximum benefits to the dwellers of these regions.
  • Jan Madhyam has also been working on sustainable soil management practices through the ProSoil project of GIZ in Balaghat and Mandla districts of Madhya Pradesh, where the use of GIS planning and remote sensing data to generate livelihood for the people around the region.
  • We have also been working in four different districts of Madhya Pradesh Namely Barwani, Chhatarpur, Khandwa and Sheopur for identifying the suitable site for developing Community Nutrition Gardens under the GIZ -SENU project to ensure the availability of nutrients to the women in their growing stage.

Responding rapidly to save lives in emergencies

One of our primary goals is to respond rapidly to save lives and reduce suffering and this is exactly what we do. In an emergency situation like drought, floods we act quickly to save lives. Once the immediate crisis has passed, we remain on the ground helping to rebuild livelihoods and infrastructure so that communities are better prepared for future crises. We conduct this activity with our own resources and have a large voluntary team who are ready to act immediately on the advent of any disaster.
