Message from General Secretary



Mr Amod K. Kanth

Prayas essentially believes that needs and rights of children are synonymous. These rights of marginalized children can get further accomplished only through empowerment and capacity building of their families and communities. This empowerment process is an inclusive strategy of socio-economic transformation of the marginalized. Hence, Prayas strongly promotes livelihood along with package of integrated programmes for marginalized children, youth and women.
