About JWP (Joint Women’s Programme)
We strive to enable women and children lead informed and safer lives
JWP – Joint Women’s Programme believes that women’s problem is a socio-cultural problem, a community problem and therefore community participation in the struggle for change the status of women and children is necessary.
Joint Women’s Programme envisions itself as a movement of and by women and children seeking the freedom to express their identity. Being one of the earliest advocates for women and child rights in India, JWP began its journey in 1977, with an objective to secure and empower women and children from violence and social atrocities. They seek to create a new society of equal partnership between women and men while ensuring access to education and protection for children.
JWP promotes issue-based campaigns and networking at the regional and national levels among women’s groups and others. Through our programmes, we reach out to government departments, law enforcing agencies, civil society, grass-root organisations and committed individuals to ensure that everyone avail their basic rights.
Based in New Delhi, JWP implements programmes across several Indian states. They emphasise on grass-root women organisation and community building in rural as well as urban areas. They extend their call to all members of society and urge participation in our attempt to uphold human rights.

Although later large number of dead bodies of murdered children were found in that area. Several NGO’s along with media exposed this inhuman act, this incident came to be known as “Nithari Serial Murders”.
