NGO in Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.
The Training Unit of the Indian Social Institute focuses its attention, according to the vision of the Indian Social Institute, on the empowerment of the marginalized groups, especially the Dalits, Tribals, Women, Children, Minority Communities etc., through capacity-building to secure their human rights through training, networking and advocacy. As part of these overall goals, the unit works with people’s movements, especially in the area of development induced displacement, like displacement caused by mining and projects in the energy sector, creation of infrastructure and special economic zones; and the consequent depletion of livelihood of especially the marginalized groups resulting in hunger and even hunger deaths. The Training Unit is also involved in the issue of right to life, livelihoods and shelter for victims of demolition of slums in various places of the National Capital Region. It works with various urban and rural grassroots organizations and movements on the human rights concerns. The Unit designs training programmes according to the needs of the people at the grass roots level. The unit imparts legal awareness training programmes for the rights of women, Dalits and Tribals, and also trains the grass root level social activists as Para legal activists to claim their Fundamental rights and other legal rights. It also produces training materials for the use of these grass root level para legal activists. It also participates and supports various local organizations and initiatives in the area of human rights inquiry and advocacy in atrocities against dalits, tribals, minorities and other marginalized communities.
