Pragya works for the appropriate development of vulnerable communities and sensitive ecosystems of the world. We reach the benefits of development to the most remote and difficult regions, delivering an array of development services to isolated and underserved communities, and building their capacity to help themselves. We also research and support reform of programmes and policies, and advise, and train development actors, in order to spur development action in these regions.

Battling Kenya's water and sanitation woes

The formidable water and sanitation challenges in Kenya have made the lives of the poor harder. Pragya's newly launched Water and Sanitation Project is a scale up of its past interventions in the Kenyan Rift Valley to address the issue of depletion and degradation of water resources, and improve water security for the pastoral people.
