More About Prayasam
“Prayasam has stepped into adulthood. As a young adult, into its twentieth year and traversing through this enriching period, PRAYASAM has gained a diverse range of experiences working with children from different socio-economic backgrounds establishing itself as a well-known expert in child rights and attaining almost the highest degree of Child Participation at a global level. Daring to tread the untrodden path in its two decade journey and shunning all conventional notions of development, which only lay special emphasis on fulfilling basic requirements or infrastructural needs, Prayasam has emerged a winner! Thus portraying beautiful kaleidoscopic designs on its 20 year canvas, with seemingly irrelevant aspects such as smart attitude, commitment, participatory approach, multi-layered work, low-cost innovations and attention to minute details.
Keeping this in view, Prayasam has emerged as a philosophy, a concept, inspiring both children and adults across the globe to create more platforms like Prayasam. Most significantly renowned entrepreneurs have acknowledged our work and the founder-director’s novel concepts and its powerful impact on children as empowered change-makers.”
