Manushi Trust
Manushi, a non-profit organisation, was founded in 1978. In 1979, we created Manushi Trust as a legal entity responsible for the organisation’s financial and overall management.

The activities of Manushi Trust include but are not confined to:

Publishing a bimonthly magazine called Manushi - A Journal About Women and Society as well as produce educational booklets, books and films on important issues. From 1979 to 1987, we also published a Hindi edition of Manushi, which had to be closed down due to paucity of resources.
Undertaking research and investigation on important social, economic and political issues that help us accurately understand the life-situations of the people of our country, especially of women and vulnerable communities.
Providing a non-partisan forum for debate on important social and political issues and exploring the changes required in the social, cultural, political and economic institutions of our society that have the potential to strengthen democratic culture, bridge the rural-urban divide and alleviate the exploitation of women, minorities, the poor and other disadvantaged groups.
Promoting greater understanding of and respect for our diverse cultures and religious traditions by undertaking inquiries that will counter the distortion of our past heritage, improve our understanding of our present and make our familial, cultural and social institutions respond creatively to the changing requirements of our people.

We welcome volunteers and interns to assist with the work of the journal as well as for undertaking special investigations. For more details see volunteers/interns, email us at

Manushi Trust is crucially dependent on its readers and supporters for its survival. Since this is an ad free, non-commercial journal, it can survive only as long as our readers consider it their very own and take part in the endeavour to enhance its outreach and provide it a sound institutional base.

It has survived thus far mainly on the basis of voluntary work and financial support from individual well wishers. We urge Manushi readers to play an active part in shaping its future.
