Sahjeevan has consistently seen the need to embed its work within larger institutional contexts. Institutionalisation is critical from multiple perspectives – strong community-based organisations are expected to help conceptualise and eventually lead the work that Sahjeevan might initiate. Such community-level ownership is critical for the long-term sustainability of the work.
The expansion of our work beyond Gujarat was made possible through the establishment and incubation of the Centre for Pastoralism — an organisation with a presence in multiple locations in the country. Similarly, we have helped build a number of institutions when we have felt the need for more focused work. Scroll down to see the Institution Map.

One of our primary goals is to empower pastoral communities to conceptualise, initiate and take forward interventions relating to their livelihoods, access to grazing lands, biodiversity conservation and the sustainable management of their natural resources.
Sahjeevan currently works with four community-based organisations in Kachchh and Saurashtra.
