In 2020, Souvik established JQC to provide a safe space for young people in Jamshedpur and Jharkhand to reflect upon, understand, organize, and initiate action on issues and challenges facing the LGBTQIA community. He has worked on the well-being of around 1000 LGBTQ people, including transgender people and queer youth, most often neglected, deliberately marginalised, and forced to be invisible.

Logical India Story on People For Change

People for Change a non profit organization based out of Jamshedpur, Jharkhand, has launched a fellowship program for young tribal women to emerge as edu-leaders. It is working to create a movement of female leaders to ensure quality education for every child in Jharkhand. Currently, they are working with 20 tribal girls across three blocks in two districts of Jharkhand.


The chosen girls will undergo a leadership journey to be empowered to create joyful learning spaces in schools, classrooms, and communities to change the learning outcomes of 1500 children in Jharkhand and ensure that they remain in school*** and finish their education. The program will also ensure that the girls emerge as leaders in the ed-space, continue their education, and inspire other tribal girls to finish their education and facilitate quality education for others.


The fellowship aims to help children use education to build aspirations, reach their full potential, and escape the generational cycle of poverty. They have launched the fellowship to ensure that children stay in schools, build aspirations, and finish education, which helps delay the age of marriage and build agency in children, thus helping end child marriage.
