Welcome to Pravah!

Pravah is a platform active since 1994. Objective behind the emergence of Pravah was to create mass awareness in respect of issues of drinking water and Sanitation and initiate advocacy for the same.


In the State of Gujarat, at the time when Pravah was initiated, the issues were many and the solutions were very few, in respect of drinking water. In the State of Gujarat, the Government was supplying water for the name sake only. During the summer, water was brought by train from other States and supplied through tankers. Since there was no Government policy regarding water, there were many issues about its distribution. People in the remote areas had to wait only for a drop of water.


Pravah through its values, decided to address the issues. Inspired people to be self reliant rather than be dependent. Inspired by these values of Pravah, many voluntary organisations of the State, decided to join the Pravah family. To make these values reach the people, Pravah along with its members, launched several campaigns like self-reliance (Swavlamban) Abhiyan, resulting in to peoples’ demand to get free from dependence and move towards self-reliance.
