Welcome to Praajak

At New Alipore Praajak Development Society, we work together with communities, government and non-government actors to provide an enabling and secure environment for vulnerable children and young people in West Bengal, India. We strive to address deep rooted gendered social constructions and stereotypes that perpetuate inequities and deprivation. Our work therefore focuses on boys and young men as we believe that bringing about sustainable transformation in the way they feel, think and act which we believe can effectively reconfigure patriarchal social realities and enable both young men and women to access opportunities to meet their aspirations.
