Open Door Policy

When a person offers to volunteer or work full time for Manushi, our primary concern is not whether we agree with his/her politics or not. Our criterion is whether he/she is willing to put in regular work and is honest and open to differences of opinion. Even when total strangers walk in and express the desire to help with Manushi work, we usually lay out the range of work that needs doing and let them choose for themselves what they would like to help with.

Thus, the energy of a wide range of people with differing ideologies has, over the years, contributed to Manushi’s survival and growth. This includes, senior bureaucrats, lawyers, police officials, scientists, students, university, college and schoolteachers as well as volunteers from foreign countries. A steady stream of well-educated, highly skilled volunteers from abroad, including young Non-Resident Indian has proved to be vital for Manushi’s survival. They all come at their cost, bring valuable skills and have worked with great commitment. Their love and free labour helped keep the running costs of Manushi to the barest minimum.
