Recently, an organization called ‘Srijan Foundation’ (SF), Jharkhand has been in the news for violation of FCRA norms .
For those who are wondering whether there is any connection between that organization and our organization Self-Reliant Initiatives through Joint Action (referred to as SRIJAN), we clarify that SRIJAN is in no way connected to or associated with Srijan Foundation, Jharkhand .
We have no field presence either in Jharkhand or Bihar .
