Welcome to Praajak

Protecting Us is in Your Hands

Established in 1997, Praajak is a non-governmental development organisation dedicated to preventing the abuse and exploitation of children and young people, especially those who occupy marginalised social locations. Praajak’s work seeks to establish a child- and youth friendly society, one which acknowledges the full citizenship of young persons and provides them their rights. Most of our programmes focus on the child’s right to protection, which has been one of the most neglected areas of intervention in work with children and young persons. We are committed to the dissemination of ideas about children’s protection and rights in various sectors of society.
