Prayaas – Let dreams not die… is an earnest attempt to bring sunshine in wearisome lives. It is a volunteer movement initiated by student fraternity of IIIT-Allahabad to ameliorate the life of not so privileged kids mentally and socially.
Our objective is to spread the light of literacy, making people aware about the importance of literacy, to help these kids at risk gain a better understanding of the world stimulating confidence, dignity and self-realisation in them leading towards their individual social, intellectual and moral growth, and hence of the society.
Education being our primary focus we work to provide better living conditions to these kids and eradication of ailments from society by making them aware of things and facts that cease to exist for them. We don’t claim to reform the society, but for advent of change, a beginning has to be there. There are many things around us which we always feel pity of, which we always condemn but never do anything to change that; we at Prayaas are have taken the initiative to bring in that change. Together we can .. and We will.
