Pragya was founded in 1995 to address the needs of people in the most neglected and difficult to reach areas of the world, such as high mountain regions and areas emerging from conflict.
Pragya’s goal is to shape and enable holistic, sustainable development with a focus on the vulnerable and neglected communities and ecosystems in remote and hard to reach areas of the world. We work with marginalized and disadvantaged communities through holistic development projects, focusing on social development, natural resource management, appropriate technology and enterprise development.
Our vision is of indigenous communities and last-mile populations enjoying the benefits of development alongside those of their natural & cultural heritage, and a high level of ‘regional happiness’. We would like to see our work contribute to making the communities of the regions we work in a happy people, economically and culturally satisfied, secure and in harmony with the natural environment, while also enjoying all the benefits of modern technologies and ways of life that they choose and having a position of respect in the world.
Pragya UK aims to:
- To help local communities in remote and hard to reach areas to access their development needs, through implementing grass roots projects and developing the capacity of local people.
- To work with government and other agencies, through research studies,awareness raising and advocacy to secure policy changes to benefit members of the most remote and disadvantaged communities.
