JST is cruising valiantly solely due to the unstinted support of friends and well wishers. Over the past 5 decades, this was source of strength and inspiration. The commitment to Gandhian values has never been compromised even once and on the contrary the resolve has deepened with each passing day.

JST has emerged as a reference point to many new initiatives. It has carved a distinct space in Karnataka driven by ideology and not by programs and activities It has cast away a few programs, embarked on a new set of activities in tune with the changing times, but responding from a strong ideological base.

JST has several dreams to realise its goal of helping to usher in an era of sustainable living and ethical practices. Your help and contributions will go a long way in initiating new set of activities.
