“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 (US) 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. Pragya in the US seeks to develop awareness of development issues, particularly with respect to marginalized sections in underserved regions of South Asia and East Africa, and other similar areas in the developing world. We also work to raise resources and support for our grassroots work in developing countries, conduct necessary research, monitor funded projects and communicate about our work with stakeholders and the public in the US.
Pragya (US) is registered as a 501(c)(3), tax-exempt non-profit.
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.
'Chars' or River Islands in Bangladesh experience devastating floods almost every year. To rebuild livelihoods of flood affected communities, Pragya is undertaking initiatives such as livestock distribution.
Your generous support can help us rebuild lives of 'Char' dwellers...
