NJM is an organisation for women, by women. NJM is commited to educate and empower poor rural women around Bodh Gaya (Bihar, India) in their quest for greater self-reliance, economic sustainability, freedom of expression, and women's rights. NJM fosters the spirit of community in the villages by organizing women's groups that base their values and teachings on gender-justice, inter-connectedness, freedom and human dignity.
Through the facilitation of vibrant programs of micro-finance / micro-enterprise within women's groups, small economic gains bring hope, courage and confidence into lives of these women. These programs educate the women in different capacity building sessions on political participation, health-care, finance-management, leadership and women's rights.
NJM has also invested in the education of girls by opening a school in the village of Mothiachak.
It is championed by One World Board.
