PRAYAS has initiated the following programmes:

  • Education to All Children (EAC): PRAYAS provides non formal, formal and supplementary pre-primary and primary education to poor rural disadvantaged children. They also educate parents about health and medical care, food and nutrition, problems of gender issues, family planning, cleanliness, kitchen garden, discipline, safe drinking water, child education, etc. through meetings and home visits. Every year an annual sports function is organized for EAC students. In FY15, 346 children benefitted from the EAC programme.
  • Livelihood Security: PRAYAS focuses on rural development in order to change the socio-economic status of the rural population. Thus, the formation of Farmers’ Clubs and Self-Help Groups was encouraged, and courses on organic farming, preparation and production of organic manure and vermin compost were offered. They also initiated vocational training for a variety of trades like tailoring, zari work, kitchen gardening, poultry, etc. In FY15, 93 people benefitted.
  • Awareness campaign and Networking: PRAYAS undertakes a number of awareness generation camps like gender equity, child labour, disability, HIV/AIDS prevention, malaria control, road safety, disaster preparedness, and Consumer Rights.
  • Health care support: Vitamin A and Albendazole medicines are distributed in the targeted areas to help them recover easily from deficiency diseases (42,214 beneficiaries in FY15). A blood camp is organized every year (55 donors in FY15). Also, PRAYAS conducts regular health check-up and awareness programmes to impart knowledge of basic health.
  • Community Organisation: PRAYAS encourages women to form Self-Help Groups that could help them become financially independent through micro-savings and credit initiatives.
  • Others: Programmes related to Environment, Sports & Culture.
