BJS began its disaster related work with its constructive and sustainable work towards disaster by rehabilitating 1200 children affected by Latur earthquake to Pune, Maharashtra for their education rehabilitation.
Bharatiya Jain Sanghatana (BJS) a non-political, not-for-profit, secular non-governmental organization (NGO) established in 1993 by Mr. Shantilal Muttha. BJS has been working in the fields of disaster response, school education and social initiatives leveraging a strong volunteers’ network across the country. Even before its formal registration as Bharatiya Jain Sanghatana, Mr. Muttha pioneered social initiatives since 1985 to address problems related to dowry, female feticide and social challenges faced by the society.
"The 1200 children affected by the Latur earthquake proved themselves in every possible aspect of their life and made the best out of every small opportunity facilitated to them. Throughout these 25 years, nothing has been more fulfilling than seeing these kids grow and excel in their chosen paths."
