About Our Foundation

Prayatna grew out of a vision of minimizing social injustice towards women and children and empower them with adequate education and training. The organization is at its nascent stage and aims at bettering the lives of the needful around it. The Board of Directors consists of professionals from different fields who together have taken up their responsibilities towards society. Together we aim at creating a difference in the lives of all those who really deserve it. We believe in the fact that :

“ The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”

Our Vision

“Prayatna is an attempt to create a society that enhances women empowerment as well as the sustained well being of children. It aims at the creation of a better world for women and children through voluntary efforts of all the sections of the society.”

Our Mission

“To mobilize, create awareness for education and to help achieve the basic needs of the underprivileged women and children of the society.”

The Three Pillars


Education is the foundation upon which we build our future.


Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.


Children are the future and their health is significant.

The journey was not easy, from the one-room classroom into a two-story school equipped with classrooms, computer labs, and washrooms.


On the 30th of August, Prayatna Foundation partnered with AIESEC 
for the Youth Speak Forum.

Prayatna Changing lives - Case Studies

Sanjib Panigrahi

First of all, I could have lost my dream of studying engineering without the help of Prayatna Foundation as our family financially poor so to study in private engineering college is almost impossible for me and Prayatna Foundation helped me by giving that financial assistance. Not only the financial assistance they also boosted my mental confidence to study without any tension for my semester fees and now I am enjoying my college life like other student does. A big thanks to Prayatna Foundation for helping me to fulfill my dream.

After I have completed my HS, I never thought that I will be able to pursue my studies in Professional Courses...But at that tough time Prayatna Foundation came into my life as a blessing and helped me a lot...
Just because of this foundation I have started my CS and I will give my 100% to complete this.

I can't thank Prayatna Foundation enough for the help they have provided me. Just when I was losing hope and a little worried about how things will go forward in my education and career, Prayatna Foundation came as a savior and helped me in working towards my goals. We need more such NGOs to make this world a better place.
