To uplift the dalits and other disadvantaged groups and to include them in the mainstream of development, there is need for their empowerment. Therefore, to ensure people's participation, BJSA has formed and strengthened community based organisations (CBOs) and associations at the local level. It has strengthened the following CBOs:
- Mahila Mukti Morcha
- Dalit Vikas Sangh
- UP Bhumi Sudhar Evam Shram Adhikar Abhiyan
- Dalit Action Group, UP
- Bhumi Sangharsh Samiti, Jaunpur
These CBOs work together with PRIs and gram sabhas for the development of the region. During their meetings they discuss the issues related to NREGS, enrolment of children in schools, ration card, right to work, etc.
