Giving Back to the Community with a smile
Our commitment to the society is an integral part of the our value system.
Giving back is where you give, and then nothing happens. No benefits for you, no
recognition, nothing tangible gets sent your way. Your biggest and sole reward is
the realization that you have made a significant change in someone’s life. And if
not “significant” then a positive change nevertheless.
CSR (Corporate Service Responsibility) initiatives at PRAWAH involves various efforts
in which we engage ourselves to give something back to the society. Our initiatives
aim at the betterment of the community through measures that will bring in sustainable
development and growth.
PRAWAH made the following contribution to the community in BIHAR:
1. Education on Good Touch & Bad Touch
PRAWAH had provided this training to the children’s of Bihar community to educate
them about the sense of good & bad touch so that the children’s at their growing
age would be aware of bad or good people around them and they will be careful towards
their good self.
2. Plantation work with the farmers and villagers/ road sides
The main object of Road Side Plantation is to provide protection to road, traffic
passengers, check soil erosion, and provide fodder & timber to the Society and mitigate
climate change. The plantation after 5 to 10 years will produce raw material for
Agro based industries which will generate livelihood.
3. Environment awareness between school children through Plantation work.
Our main focus is to expose students to the actual world they live in. They have
to be acquainted with the environment related issues and problems. They must also
be able to look at environmental problems and concerns, analyse, evaluate, draw
and equip themselves to resolve them. To achieve this, we will pursue three common
aspects: • Learning about the environment • Learning through the environment and
exploration through a variety of activities • Learning for the environment by developing
a concern and sensitivity towards its protection and preservation.
4. Rescue of children from Harmful factories
Hundreds of children, forced to work in "inhuman conditions", have been rescued
from factories. Many parents say poverty forces them to send their children to work
in other people's homes or in factories. Widespread poverty and lack of education
result in many children being pushed into work. Sometimes their wages may be promised
to their parents. PRAWAH is working in tandem with the Labour Welfare Department
to take effective measures to eradicate the Mafia behind bringing children from
other states to work in hazardous industries
5. Women awareness on their rights
Hundreds of children, PRAWAH is helping women and girls in BIHAR become aware of
their rights. Thru our programs we are strengthening their skills to protect themselves
and their families from domestic & social violence. In partnership with local women's
organizations, we're working to promote women’s rights and to reduce violence against
women and girls in BIHAR.
6. Financial empowerment of village women
PRAWAH empowers women to meet their individual financial goals, improve their financial
knowledge and decision-making ability, and better control of their finances. As
women save more and increase their household income, they invest in their children's
health and education, by having more economic power, women improve their standing
as community members as well. Regular home visits by trained financial advisor and
coach help allow participants openly share their progress and challenges and discuss
issues and barriers.
7. Awareness between the elected panchayat women leaders of their role and Responsibility
At the same time there are many women representatives and pradhans who have taken
bold initiatives. They have not only set an example for male dominated society but
also demonstrate that changes are taking place, albeit slowly. PRAWAH, has conducted
training for awareness-building and training for enhancing rural women’s capacity
to take up their new responsibilities as local legislators and decision-makers under
8. Helping People with HIV/AIDS
When someone is diagnosed with HIV it can be emotionally draining for them, but
it can affect all the family members too. Depending on your relationship with the
person you may be feeling sad, angry, confused or shocked. If your sexual partner
has been diagnosed with HIV you may need to think about having a test yourself.
We at PRAWAH have conducted HIV/AIDS AWARENESS INITIATIVES. We have conducted training
programs for creating awareness about HIV/AIDS. Our initiatives have motivated community
members, especially, pregnant women and other adults from the villages to get tested
9. Health Checkups

Today more emphasis is given on prevention of disease and promoting health awareness.
In past some years there has been explosion in in knowledge about the causes and
prevention of disease, which really made possible to detect many disease in early
