Project Mera Sahara started in 2007 with minimal resources in Nithari, Noida following the frightening incident that took place in December 2006 and envisaged starting a protection and learning centre in a protected environment.


Today, JWP Mera Sahara centres serve as a beacon of hope and opportunity for children and adults in underprivileged communities. Mera Sahara Centres provide non-formal schooling (up-to class 5) and crèche facilities for infants, adult literacy (training in legal literacy) programmes for young adults and women as well as skill development programmes for economic empowerment of women and young girls. Through a holistic approach to education, skilling and support, these centres strive to bridge the gap between marginalised and underprivileged individuals and mainstream educational opportunities.

JWP Mera Sahara centres aim to empower learners of all ages with knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to thrive in today’s rapidly evolving world. From nurturing future leaders among the youngest learners to providing second chances for adults seeking to enhance their skills, Mera Sahara Centres are dedicated to fostering a culture of lifelong learning, empowerment, gender justice and social change.
