Strengthening Democratic Processes

Democratic institutions particularly the institutions of local self governance have been natural partners of our work. Besides the affirmative action promised in the 73rd Amendment of the Indain Constitution, capacity building efforts are also required to be able to create a cadre of local leadership that is capable of transformation. Training PRI members has emerged as a critical requirement to establish good governance at the grassroots.

PRAYATN has been working with PRI representatives towards enhancing their capacities. Given the existing social inequalities, it is imperative to help particularly the women, schedules caste and tribes fight the disadvantages and enable them to participate in the local government processes. PRAYATN organizes trainings covering multiple dimensions including rules and regulations, administrative issues, budgeting and finance and the implementation of development schemes. With reference to the local self governance, PRAYATN also takes up research and studies to understand performance, operational bottlenecks and democratic behaviors of people.
