To create a fund to help the victims of the farmer suicides that are on the rise in the Vidarbha region of Maharashtra
VIDARBHA JAN ANDOLAN SAMITI (VJAS) is an organization founded by Kishore Tiwariji (http://www.theweekendleader.com/Crusade/447/vidarbha%E2%80%99s-hope.html).
The VJAS has been monitoring suicides by farmers and providing rehabilitation support to their families. They have taken up issues with the administration, judiciary, legislature, human rights bodies and international forums. In a region comprising more than 70 percent backward population, VJAS has been taking up issues like malnutrition among tribals, their right to food and education, and drinking water supply.
