Prayatn’s vision is a just society in which men and women are equal. We believe that each and every person-irrespective of their sex, age, race, colour, class and religion should have a life of freedom, dignity and opportunity in which they enjoy all their human rights.

In pursuit of this vision Prayatn works to enable people facing inequality and injustice to help themselves. We aim to strengthen ties in local communities so that people can work together to bring about positive changes in their lives. We particularly encourage women to participate in this process, as they are the most marginalized, downtrodden and powerless social group in India.  more >>
