Founded in 1998, Praja Foundation is a non-partisan organization working towards establishing accountability and transparency in governance by empowering citizens and providing them with knowledge and perspective. They try to open up the dialogue between public servants and the electorate and to ensure that communication continues beyond elections.
Praja strives to revive the waning spirit of Mumbai, and increase the interaction between the citizens and the government. For this, they have created a web portal: www.praja.org to equip citizens with pertinent information, like issues faced by the ward, the responses received, along with a discussion board. Praja's primary focus areas for research are health, crime, education, working of elected representatives, housing and civic issues. Their research and outreach activities are essentially guided by the data collected and analyzed by them through extensive use of The Right to Information Act, 2005 (RTI).
