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. 

What we do

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.

We launched this fellowship in memory of Anindo Banerjee, our first team member, friend and co-traveller, whom we lost in 2021. The fellowship is an attempt to honour his contribution and commitment to participation, social justice and accountability.

We are happy to annouce that after screening multiple proposals, we have selected our first Fellow. Hailing from the Van Gujjar community, through his project our Fellow aims to revive the traditional knowledge of Van Gujjars, their folk songs and folktales by preserving, documenting and showcasing them to the wider public.
