Ramnika Foundation (a trust) was formed in 1995 and registered in 1997 at Hazari Bagh, Jharkhand. At present it operates from its permanent administrative office at Delhi. It is a non-profit, non-political and secular organization.
The Foundation was formed to provide a platform for the unheard voices of the downtrodden sections of the society, including Tribals, Dalits, Women and other Indian minorities. The aim of the Foundation is to bring them into the national mainstream through social mobilization, literature, art and culture and strive to build a new social order based on social justice, rational and logical thinking, pragmatism and a scientific outlook.Why Dalits, Tribals and Women?
