Jan Jagaran Shakti Sangathan (JJSS) is a registered trade union of unorganized sector workers that enables local rural communities to gain government entitlements and learn about new job opportunities.
The Indian government has created numerous entitlements and employment programs across the country to help vulnerable citizens such as NREGA - an Indian labour scheme providing guaranteed 100 days of work to rural households.
Many rural households are unaware of these entitlements or do not know how to take advantage of the benefits due to lack of accessible information.
Unfortunately, a lot of government officials are accused of misappropriation of funds and taking advantage of these unskilled labourers due to their dearth of information.
