PRATHA has been working in India for over 65 years, focusing on ending poverty and social injustice.
We do this through well-planned and comprehensive programmes in health, education, livelihoods and disaster preparedness and response.
Women form the backbone of a family. They typically play multiple roles: a mother, a wife and often a provider of income. Yet women suffer from severe gender inequality, especially in rural India. Women's empowerment is a high priority for Pratha Foundation. Supporting a rich range of replicable women-focused programs, Pratha Foundation is empowering a new generation of women who support themselves financially, participate in local government, provide healthcare for their families, and stand up for equality at home and in their communities.
