Who we are

Praxis - Institute for Participatory Practices 

Praxis is a development support organisation aiming to democratise development processes to make them more inclusive, relevant and responsive vis a vis marginalised communities. Through participatory research, capacity-building, documentation and dissemination of pro-poor research initiatives, Praxis aims to create a platform where voices of excluded groups can be heard and acted upon in the quest for equity.

to enable Participatory Democracy

  • People-centred and people-led research which goes beyond tokenistic participation to perceiving communities as agents of change;    

  • Engagement with the State to create platforms for community participation in governance;

  • Networking to share knowledge, create platforms for dialogue, and influence policy-making with grounded expertise;

  • Capacity building which encompasses organisational development, building and managing relationships between different stakeholders, organisations, networks and sectors, institutional development and advocating for policy and legal changes; and

  • Tracking trends in the development discourse in line with its projected image of a knowledge organisation.
