Initiated in 1993, PRAVAH is an NGO that works to build leadership for social change with young people. Over the last 19 years, it has developed a deep understanding and a unique perspective on youth development. This expertise is based on its rich experience of designing and implementing a range of programmes with different segments of adolescents and youth in the country. In contrast to many other organizations that view youth as either a client group or an instrument for development, PRAVAH’s interventions facilitate youth to lead social change while investing in their own development. For various reasons, relatively few organizations do this sort of work even though it is a critical need.
