Co-founded by Geetha Menon in 1988, Stree Jagruti Samiti is an organisation based in Bangalore that champions the cause of domestic workers and fights for their labor rights and employment benefits. It also rescues and rehabilitates domestic workers who are minors. The women of the organization have over the years focused on problems by allying with smaller local groups of household helpers across the city and the state. The group also conducts science and art camps, child rights awareness workshops and adolescent health advisory sessions for children of domestic workers. She has truly been inspirational and let’s applaud this Citizen Individual of the Year’s efforts.
