Some of us are privileged - self-made or born into fortune, but unfortunately, a majority struggle for the basics all across our nation. We should remind ourselves that every right implies a responsibility - just like that of social justice. And also, everyone deserves equal economic, social, and political rights and opportunities.
Sadly, we function poorly on several social indicators after more than 75 years of Independence. We Indians need to ask and rectify some basic questions on social justice and economic freedom.
We can acknowledge different kinds of social injustice in our day-to-day lives. The need of the hour is to implement justice through more efforts to tackle issues that still plague a globalized world – poverty, gender inequality, and human rights, amongst others.
What is Social Justice?
Social justice is not about Charity. It is every citizen's right, and it is what the Humanity Welfare Council truly understands – everyone deserves equal economic, political and social rights and opportunities.
Social justice is the basis of the Indian Constitution. We need to uphold these rights awarded by our country's lawmakers and work towards the betterment of our society.
We live in a prejudiced world with an unequal distribution of capitalism. Mostly, it is an unfair world with a few blessed ones served on a golden platter and most of the population struggling for a living. With maximum wealth and opportunities in the hands of only 1% of Indians, it shows the injustice served to the rest of the population. This injustice is the biggest hurdle in the nation's development, which further leads to unemployment and poverty, hindering the nation's growth.
With uneven wealth structure leading to a lack of work opportunities and low investments erodes the primary social network. This social injustice system directs us to restructure our economic and social policies from the grassroots level.
What Do We Do?
At the Humanity Welfare Council, we strive to make India a progressive nation, firmly dealing with social injustice. But, unfortunately, unequal levels of development force people to leave their homeland in search of survival and better development options beyond national boundaries, causing a brain drain in India.
We decided to launch specific programs to help socially and educationally disadvantaged groups:
- Job opportunities creation for educated youth.
- Organizing training programs and job fairs for the youth of India.
- Implementing Government schemes for social, economic, and educational empowerment of socially and educationally disadvantaged groups.
- To establish advanced infrastructure to promote education among socially and educationally disadvantaged groups.
- Creating employment options for physically disabled people.
- Giving free legal support to socially disadvantaged sections.
- Initiating new policies for safeguarding the interests of backward classes.
- Funding welfare programs for underprivileged sections.
- Rehabilitation of drug addicts.
- Managing matters related to discrimination with backward class.
Who will benefit from our program?
- Unemployed youth
- Migratory tribes
- Economically backward group
- Physically disabled people
- Drug addicts
We take inspiration and wish to do what we can to build an inclusive society where everyone is well fed, has a roof over their head, does meaningful work and has the resources to live life with dignity.
As human beings, all of us have been given equal rights and responsibilities. So let us make efforts, no matter how small, to safeguard the rights of others, including the less privileged.
Let us work together to create a society with equal opportunities for every human with no discrimination on any basis.
Let's make India progressive, eliminating social injustice from the grassroots level.
