Jagabandhu Jarashram strives to establish anegalitarian society where there will not be anydiscrimination on the ground of caste, class, colour, creed, race, region, religion and sex. It envisages a self-reliant society where the process of development will be on a parallel basis, not horizontally. In short the closest model that the organisation strives to achieve is the Gram Swaraja of Gandhiji in self-sufficient village unit.
The Mission of the organization is to assure socioeconomic justice to the underprivileged sections of the society through different developmental activities. To bring about a qualitative change of these people in particular, PRAYAS strives to assure health, education and livelihood for all. PRAYAS strives to act as a catalyst for better community organization, resource mobilization, idea initiation and capacity building of the community at the grass roots level.
