Our Success Stories


I am Matadayal, and for the last 50 years, I have been working to defend Forest Rights of people in the Sonbhadra region of Uttar Pradesh. CJP and AIUFWP have been conducting training programmes that have taught our people how to file land claims. Now, we stand before Forest Department officials and demand back our ancestral land.

Sokalo Gond

My name is Sokalo Gond and I’m an Adivasi and Forest Rights defender from Sonbhadra, Uttar Pradesh. In May 2018, my fellow activist Kismatiya Gond and I were detained illegally for voicing the grievances about police brutality against Adivasi women. I am grateful to CJP for filing a habeas corpus petition and freeing us from prison. CJP also helped another activist Nivada Rana and me move the Supreme Court to prevent the ouster of Adivasis from forest land.

Nivada Rana

My name is Nivada Rana and I’m a member of the Tharu Adivasi community. In 2019, CJP helped my fellow Adivasi and Forest Rights defender Sokalo Gond and me, move Supreme Court against the eviction of Adivasis from their traditional habitat in the forest.
