People’s Forum since its inception in 1989 mandated to provide a platform for the vulnerable and deprived section of the community whose voices have remained unheard, rights ignored and basic entitlements not accomplished. Therefore, the main focus has been to create sensitization and awareness among people, mobilizing youth and working towards people’s collectives to let them realize their entitlements and strive to access those. With changing development context and people’s knowledge and graduated need, the organization has always relooked its strategic mandate and supported education, livelihood, financial inclusion, health and sanitation services. It has always reset its course to reinforce its commitment to the issues of human rights and poverty alleviation. In this light the organization has, in the last 25 year, been expanding its gamut of activities based on the needs of the people. It adheres to an approach which is subject specific and works with a strategic framework predominantly in a mission mode to address the diverse problems.
People’s Forum believes that poverty, gender, caste discrimination, vulnerability and deprivation has been major cause of hindering inclusive growth and development. The organization is mandated to address inclusive growth enabling marginalized section of people to have a dignified and secured living. The organization is very unique in identifying the areas of intervention, regions and target population so that any serious problem or secluded people may not remain unattended. In its effort to work towards inclusive development, the organization has worked in varied sectors targeting diverse groups by designing need based project interventions.
