Providing Actions With Research And Sustainable Development
PARAS INDIA was established in 2007 with the aim to transform society by uplifting and dignifying the marginalized sections of the society. With our efforts, we aim to empower the society in line with the tenets enshrined in our Constitution. We are a national level non-governmental organization which is currently working in four states in India, namely, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Delhi-NCR. Our focus areas include education, gender, counselling, awareness generation, livelihood, healthcare and disaster management. It’s our prime endeavour to bring into mainstream those who have been historically and socially sidelined. To make them an active participant in the democratic process and bring dignity to their lives.
That we all have the same rights as citizens and entitled to respect and dignity towards the pursuit of a better life.
That the way towards that better life is through education and knowledge is real power.
Self-Sufficiency (Political, Economic
and Social) is the ultimate hallmark of the equitable democratic process.

My life after I joined Paras India is what I could never have dreamt of. I was identified by one of the field workers in PARAS India. He convinced my parents to let me stay in a girl’s hostel at Chirgaon in Uttar Pradesh. When I first came to Paras India, I was not confident; I was hesitant to communicate with anyone.
