About the Organisation
a registered Charitable Society formed in 1986. Janarth
was formed by the coming together of a group of professionals
from different fields, wanting to take up the challenge
of bringing a perceivable change in the lives of people
inhabiting backward regions.
the logo "FREEDOM TO CHOOSE", is Janarth's
belief that everyone has the freedom to choose his/her
own road to development. As a group of professionals,
our role is to bring an awareness of the sea of possibilities
and development alternatives and bring them within the
reach of the poorest.
