“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.” - Margaret Mead
Pragya (UK) is a non-governmental development organisation working for the sustainable development of remote regions and deprived peoples, and conservation of the fragile ecosystems in such regions, worldwide. We undertake international development projects on critical needs in Asia and Africa, in partnership with our sister organizations and others in specific countries. We mobilize resources for these projects, manage and monitor them, and communicate and share the lessons learnt widely in the UK. We also conduct necessary research and work to develop awareness of development issues, and advocate for right programming and policies, internationally.
Pragya (UK) is registered as a Charity [Charity ID: 1082476] with the Charity Commission for England and Wales.
The current geographical focus of our work includes remote and marginalised regions in India, Nepal, Bangladesh in South Asia and the highlands and arid savannahs of Kenya in East Africa.
