PRAVAH is a Non Profit making organization working since 1992 in Santhal Pargana Region of Jharkhand for poor and vulnerable sections of the society. PRAVAH was founded by a group of dynamic social activists and intellectuals with the leadership of Mr. Dilip Kumar, inspired by the ideology of freedom fighter M.K. Gandhi, prominent social thinker Dr.R.M. Lohiya and Jai Prakash Narayan. With the goal to establish Gram Swaraj, influenced by Gandhian philosophy PRAVAH initiated its development mission in 10 villages of Sarwan block in Deoghar district with vulnerable target groups especially women and children of tribal and Dalit communities. Poverty and hunger in the marginalised groups have been deep rooted problems in the area which became the key focus of organizational intervention and most of its programs have been to alleviate poverty and increasing food availability in a sustainable manner. Gradually PRAVAH scaled up its development initiatives through programmatic abilities and its rapport with the local community from 10 villages to 200 villages, where several successful development models have been established in Santhal Pargana region of Jharkhand and have also spread its root in 4 district of Bihar.
