16th Year JANAKALYAN: An Institution for Innovation Integrated Inspiring Interventions

From Directors Desk

It indeed brings great pleasure to me to present the 16th Annual Report of
Janakalyan on its 17th Foundation Day! The year 2012-13 would be written on
golden letters as 2 important stones were unveiled during the year as mark
of successes! The 8th January 2013 was observed as 1 st Annual Day of Maa
Sarada Pre University College on the eve of 160 th Birth Anniversary of Holy
Mother and the new building of the institute was opened by Swami
Muktidananda Maharaj, President of Ramakrishna Ashrama, Mysore in the
holy presence of Swami Jnanananda Maharaj of Ramakrishna Ashrama,
Natarama Palli, Tamil Nadu and other distinguished guests. The stone
erected on this occasion will tell the tale of the building throughout its life.
1st March 2013 was another important day in the history of the Bengali
refugees resettled in Karnataka! The delegates, writers, poets, intellectuals,
local leaders and government officers together celebrated Matribhasha
Vijay Divas and unveiled the Matribhasha Vijay Stambh as mark of victory
of establishing Bengali as second language in government schools. The
stone will tell the tale of the efforts put to provide the mother tongue to the
future generations of Bengali refugees in Karnataka; they will now have an
opportunity to learn their mother tongue!
26th March 2013 is another most important day in the history of Bengali
refugees in Karnataka as Government of Karnataka has issued a Gazette
Notification (SWD 157 SAD 2009) to constitute a high level committee
chaired by Additional Chief Secretary of Karnataka and 3 commissioners of
highest rank; the committee is to recommend the points to be considered in
order to issue caste certificate to the Namasudra communities.
Government of Karnataka has also issued several other orders and
instructions for voting rights, ration card, land rights and other issues of
these refugees during the year. Therefore, Janakalyan has termed the year
as Fight for Rights and dedicated it to the primary target groups of
However, it is worth mentioning here that the year was equally bad in terms
of funding in the history of Janakalyan. It had to borrow huge loan to
complete the college building after investing all its savings/corpus for the
same. Further, the recurring expenses of the college itself were several times
more than the fees that the student paid. When nobody came forward for
investing in the college, I had to put my whole lifes savings in to it but still
had a credit in lakhs. I really dont know how to repay this loan?
It would be wrong on my part if I dont put on record few names who made it
possible to complete the huge project of college building; they are the
contractor Sri Tarun Mondal, Sri Jeetendra of Mahendra Hardware, Sri
Gautam of Anand Electricals, Md Syed Mittimani of Welding Shop and Sri
Gorachand Carpenter.

Annual Report 2012-13
Finally, I must tank the selfless Governing Board, the dedicated team of
professionals, the supportive donors and more important the target groups
of Janakalyan, who made Janakalyan to survive for all these 16 years! We will
prove our existence in days to come!

of these Bengali communities, Government of
Karnataka has finally issued an order to teach
Bangla as second language in local
government schools (Government Order No: ED

It was not that easy but a long struggle of more
than 15 years which yielded result in 2012-13

outside Bangla border. It made NiBBUSS team

Create Multiple Sources of Income in Small Farms
Inculcate a habit of diversified cropping pattern to distribute the risk of crop failure

Thanks to NABARD for supporting a farm

based innovation under the Farmers Technology
Transfer Fund (FTTF) to create a model for tail
end farmers of Tungabhadra Irrigation Project!
Growth of population and land fragmentation
has reduced the per capita land availability. This
posed the food insecurity to the small farmers.
This is also because of the mono-cropping and
inadequate irrigation at tail end of Tungabhadra
irrigation project. Though we have enough
runoff generated during the rainy season for
which make way out of our farm and later blame
God or Government for not providing irrigation.

Multiple Sources of Income risk distribution To enhance the productivity and income level of
these farmers, Janakalyan developed a model to
inculcate the habit of diversified cropping
pattern to distribute the risk of crop failure. To
begin with, the intervention started with 5
farmers while it is planned to demonstrate with
another 10 farmers. The productive units
demonstrated in the farms are
1) Fish in the Water Bank
2) Fodder with milch animals
3) Vermicompost for soil fertility improvement
4) Vegetable cultivation

In addition, some fruit and firewood trees are

also planted on the bunds of the water bank. The
model is tested with more than 50 farmers in
Vermicomposting recycling the wastes past and has come up as a replicable model for
any tail end of irrigation project in India.

Concept of cost sharing is introduced to develop

the sense of ownership among the farmers on the
assets created.

NABARD has played an important role in

reducing the wastage of food grains with the
Grameen Bhandara Yojana by promoting of rural
go-downs. Similar scheme needs to be promoted
by NABARD in order to harvest this runoff by
creating Water Bank to reduce wastage of
every drop of water.

fund) for supporting a farm based innovation to
create a model for tail end farmers of
Malaprabha Irrigation Project in Gadag district
of Karnataka! All tail ends of any irrigation
projects in India are exposed to 2-extremes of
water availability. The farmers lose their
standing crop due to inundation in rainy season
while it gets dried up during peak season for
lack of irrigation. In order to bring the farmers
out of this trap, Janakalyan has developed an
innovative model to create a water bank in all
such farms to harvest the excess water during
rainy season and use it for lifesaving irrigation
during peak season.
Janakalyan believes that if water security is Water Bank excavated to store excess water
ensure to the farming communities, they will
ensure the food security of the nation. Therefore,
urges the farming communities to create a water
bank for their children instead of a house for
them. With the support of Deshpande
Foundation, Janakalyan has already created
about 45 water banks in the Gadag district in the
last 3 years as provided in the following table-
Number of 2010-11 2011-12 2012-13 Total
water banks 10 27 8 45

Total Sanitation Campaign
Participation is the way to real development, 200 toilets built in 25 days

Thanks to Infosys Foundation for the support

through Kottala Basaveshwara Bharatiya
Shikshana Samsthe for supporting construction
of 200 toilets in Sindhanur Rehabilitation
Project! It was to our wonder that community
participation could ensure completion of
construction of 200 toilets in only 25 days
without investing a single rupee. It is the
credibility of Janakalyan that without any formal
documentation, 200 families invested more than
Rs.40 lakhs to construct 200 toilets believing
that Janakalyan would certainly give the
200 toilets lokarpan cheque distribution
promised grant of Rs.8000 per toilet. On the
contrary, the same community is not ready to
invest for the toilets to get grant from Gram
Panchayat though the amount is higher
(Rs.9800) than what Janakalyan has promised.

The lokarpan of these 200 toilets was done in

the presence of Sri Basavaraj Patil Sedam (MP)
and Sri Vasudevrao Deshpande of Infosys
Foundation along with cheques for each
beneficiary. The intervention did not stop there
but it is ensured by Janakalyan team that each of
these 200 toilets is being used hygienically. The
senior citizens, the pregnant women and
Lives in hut but constructed toilet adolescent girls have thanked the foundation for
this kind assistance.

have been tried with the farming communities
to replace application of non-renewable sources
of energies with renewable sources.
Introduction of pedal pump, pressure pump to
lift water from the tanks without electricity or
fuel is one such effort. Recycling of crop wastes
and cow excreta for soil fertility improvement in
place of chemicals, improved chullah, biogas
plants, etc. are some of these initiatives to
promote usage of renewable sources of energy.
Growing more and more firewood trees is
another way to cope up with the climate change
by replacing what the farmers take out of the
environment for own consumptions. Otherwise,

What Next?
Journey ahead to Janakalyan

Lots have been achieved during the last 16 years of development journey of Janakalyan with the support
of our esteemed donors and cooperation of the target communities; however, there is long way to go to
make these communities empowered and self reliant!

Janakalyan plans few important interventions in the days to come which are briefed below-
1) Decentralized Education: In ancient days, the gurukul education system prevailed wherein the
students used to go to Ashram (usually located in neighborhood of villages) to gain knowledge and
experience from the nature. But in present days, the education centers are concentrated in urban
cities beyond the reach of rural children. It is therefore the gap between urban India and rural Bharat
is increasing day by day. Janakalyan proposes to reverse the present trend and draw the attention of
urban children to the rural areas by creating state of art education centre in rural areas. This will not
only provide practical experience to the students but also the fresh environment for their growth. In
addition, the rural children will have the access to the education of equal standard.
2) Water Bank: Water is life and assured water to the farming community can ensure food security the
whole nation. We have enough water but lack in storage structures. We make way to water when
have in excess but blame God or Government in scarcity. Janakalyan plans to create Water Bank for
each farm to harvest each drop of water and make effective use of it. Janakalyan urges the
community, government and developmental agencies to ensure that each farmer creates Water
Bank for his child than a house.
3) National Alliance: Janakalyan team has enough expertise in addressing the issues of refugees and
managing natural resources for livelihood improvement, especially in the tail ends of irrigation
projects in India. Janakalyan plans to deploy its expertise in similar contexts all over the country
through a national alliance of likeminded agencies and communities.
4) Human Resource for Rural Development: There are unknown numbers of institutions in the country
who are creating human resources; but none of them are oriented to work in rural areas having no
or little infrastructures. Even the person from rural areas starts job hunting in urban cities.
Janakalyan wishes to establish a Human Resource Development Centre where the person would be
trained in rural development and oriented / motivated / brainwashed to work in rural areas with
deprived communities.
The estimated cost of these proposed interventions are tabulated below-
Sl. No. Proposed Project Period (years) Amount (INR)
1 Decentralized Education 6 years 21,00,00,000
2 Water Bank 7 years 18,00,00,000
3 National Alliance 5 years 5,00,00,000
4 Human Resource for Rural Development 10 years 10,00,00,000
Total fund requirement 54,00,00,000
Janakalyan has a dedicated team to transfer your resources to the deserving groups and needs about Rs.54
crores to accomplish the above targets. We urge for your generous support ONLINE and/or request you to
deposit the same in our State Bank of India account No.30168833165 having IFSC SBIN0007861 in favor of

16th Year JANAKALYAN: An Institution for Innovation Integrated Inspiring Interventions

Footsteps of Janakalyan
Year of Conceptualization Year of Inception

Janakalyan took birth in July 1997 with an objective to assist the refugees & repatriates to raise their income

level through intervention in the field of agriculture. It started working with farming communities with its own resources.
The strategy adopted to work with these peasant communities was awareness generation among the mass about the
mistakes that they have already done and the ways to rectify it. Training & exposure were 2 tools adopted to convince
these farmers about the proposition that Janakalyan was propagating about organic farming.
Year 1998 began with new hopes. The concept of raising income level of the farmer was added with land
reclamation (soil fertility / health management and preserving it for the generations to come). It also worked out for
subsidiary sources of income for these communities and found animal husbandry as a viable option; started promoting

the same along with agriculture. By the end of the year it realized that raising the income level through its different
approaches would not serve the purpose if proper mechanism is not adopted to save the earned income; thus, started
promoting Self Help Groups of men and women. And thus the objective of Janakalyan was formulated as to serve 3 holy
mothers i.e. Manavi Mata, Bhoo Mata & Go Mata. It also started working with children, keeping education as the focal
point through ASHA & Child Labor Schools.
The year 1999-2000 could be termed as Capacity Building Year for Janakalyan. Maximum effort was put to train
Year of Capacity Building

the staff of Janakalyan at various NGOs and Institutions through training and exposure. Awareness generation, training
and exposure for the community (woman & farmers), relation building with local officers, etc. were the major activities

during the year. Fund flow also started from this year. Women Development & Empowerment Program, Mahila Arthika
Swavalambane Yojana, Participatory Technology Development in Cotton, Dairy Development Program, and Child Labor
Elimination Program were the programs of the year. The important innovation of Janakalyan was Sansar Pathshala,
Kishori Vikash Program, Shree Shakthi Sabha and Sangha Darshini Samittee. The fourth mata i.e Ganga Mata was added
to the objective upon suggesting it by most of the distinguished visitors to Janakalyan.
The year 2000-2001 is an important year for Janakalyan wherein the top management of the organization
undergone various training at renown Institutes. Therefore, the same programs were continued during the year without

much difference. However, the major step initiated during the year was formation of a Cluster Level Federation of SHGs

and starting a Milk Marketing Center at Sindhanur through this Federation. Kitchen Garden Program was another
innovative program to recycle the water to grow vegetable in the house-yard. Most of the activities / programs got
hindered during this year due to improper management as the staffs were deputed for higher studies. However, a
research study was undertaken during the year in the Rehabilitation Project by the staff. The area of operation got
extended to outside Rehabilitation Project.
The year 2001-2002 is the year of transformation. After proper training of the top management, it realized that
Year of Professionalization

till date Janakalyan was functioning without proper planning. Planning Meeting was introduced for the first time in the
organization to organize the activities in a systematic way after assessing the needs of the community in a participatory
way. The organization also gave emphasis on professionalizing the approach by recruiting the qualified employees like

B.V.Sc., M.Tech., MSW, M.Com., MA graduates. A detailed Service Rules for Janakalyan was also adopted during the year.
A few sets of innovative programs also got introduced during the year. The year is termed as Mass Mobilization Year
because lot of efforts was put to organize the community in demanding their rights from the concerned authorities.
The year 2002-03 is the year for sustainability of the organization. Sustainability of an Organization is nothing
but having a dedicated professional team of Human Resource and a constant flow of Financial Resources. Towards this,
Janakalyan put all the effort to have a competent team by recruiting a set of fresh graduates because they could be tuned
Year of Sustainability

according to the vision and mission of Janakalyan. Many efforts were put to see that the programs as well as the
organization become sustainable. The year is also most Planned Year in the history of Janakalyan; also received the FCRA

registration and exemption under section 12A of Income Tax Act, 1961. We received first foreign grant for the Cotton
Based Integrated Farming System development program. Janakalyan got lot of publicity during the year through its
program called Jana-Udyog. The area of operation was extended to outside the block as well as district. The
administrative Office was established at Jawalgera keeping the conveniences like Bank, Post, Transportation and area of
operation in mind.
The year 2003-04 is the year of confidence building. An organization working with all sections of society as

target communities for the past 8 years has developed self-confidence in achieving maximum success in its target.
Looking to our professional management, dedicated team of human resource and judicious use of financial resources

another two big projects JSYS and HIVOS were added in our list. We also see considerable change in conditions of our
target community resulting because they have started believing in themselves and our propositions.

the beginning of the year as well as programs. Study in other districts of Karnataka as well as research on potential
donors started during the year. Janakalyan also done major surgeries to its operational strategies, amended its byelaws,
changed its board structure and composition and many more. To sum up, it could be said that Janakalyan took new birth
with new spirit.
