Progressive Rural Active Youth’s Action for Society
PRAYAS is a Bengali word, meaning EFFORT.
PRAYAS is a non profit organisation that strives to wipe tear and bring a smile on the faces of the marginalised and underprivileged weaker sections of the society. PRAYAS strongly believes that the change of a man’s fate lies in his own hands and that the key for a developed and self sustained society is in the hands of the people themselves. PRAYAS is a catalyst to that development process, channelising their strengths and resources to build a better future for the children of the present and future.
PRAYAS envisages a society free from the perils of religion, caste, creed or class, where people live in peaceful coexistence with nature, utilizing nature’s resources to meet only their needs; and where people are healthy, educated and prosperous in physical, mental and materials terms.
PRAYAS shall strive towards providing opportunities for social and economic advancement of the poor and underprivileged sections of the society. The organization shall always strive for the empowerment of women and development of children as guiding forces to build a stronger and self-sufficient society.
