Mission

To promote sustainable livelihoods for rural poor, especially womenfolk through provision of financial and technical support in an integrated manner.

Vision

Improved access to affordable Micro Credit, insurance, livelihood, health, education services, food, water and sanitation.

Objective

To start the process to promote the economic development of disadvantage and poor households and create an environment of social change to improve their livelihood.

Approach

Fitting the above adage, JF’s approach is in enabling the poor to better their lives and achieve self-reliance. JF strongly believes that what poor need is not charity, but hope, not sympathy but entitlement, not delivery of services but an enabling environment to access those services by themselves. We hope that this enabling approach will facilitate the poor to stand on their own by earning a decent income with dignity.

JF achieves it by promoting self-reliant people institutions, by organizing the poor. Thus creating an effective demand stream, where the poor have an opportunity to access livelihood support services i.e. Micro Credit, Input Supply, Skill Development, Marketing etc and improve income generation and asset building capacity.
