Jatan Sansthan is a grassroots NGO working with the rural population of the districts of Rajsamand, Udaipur and Bhilwada, in Rajasthan. Since its establishment in 2001, Jatan has designed and implemented various initiatives geared towards improving the social and demographic indicators of the marginalized population of Railmagra block.
Large numbers of people from the rural areas of South Rajasthan migrate to adjoining states in search of a better livelihood. Migration of these young men has led to economic disparity, exploitation of the young men at destination, and several other risks like HIV/AIDS. This is a major challenge in the districts of Rajsamand and Bhilwada. Jatan has been working as the migration bureau in Rajsamand district and has successfully established a Migrant Support & Resource Centre at Railmagra block. This centre undertakes regular registration of migrants, especially of the young ones, provides them with counselling at destination and supports rehabilitation on their return to their villages.
