Welcome to Pravah Jaipur Initiative

Hey All!!

A huge shout out to all of you as we welcome you to Pravah Jaipur Initiative family. 

“This world demands the qualities of youth: not a time of life but a state of mind, a temper of the will, a quality of imagination, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease.” — Robert Kennedy.

Pravah Jaipur Initiative, an ancillary of Pravah Delhi, works with the youth of Jaipur assisting them in their voyage to understand themselves, internalizing social orientation and a regard for common spaces. We believe that the way to engage people into having a deeper and further horizon is to instill in them a respect for the journey and not only the fruits. We encourage youth to shed old baggage, learn and unlearn. Like walking the thin line between fun and work, social responsibility and sacrifice, right and left, black and white, from ME to WE.

Pravah Jaipur Initiative or PJI as we fondly call it, invites you to be a part of our voyage. We present you some of our upcoming events. 

Samvidhan LIVE - The Jagrik Project

We believe ownership of common spaces is a crying need of the hour. We believe ownership comes when you act in the real world, when you co-create, when you see the consequences of your actions. 
Com-Mutiny – The Youth Collective’s and PJI latest public initiative, Samvidhan LIVE - The Jagrik Project, will build young people’s capacities for meeting this challenge as they refl-act (reflect+act) in the real world. Using their experiential discoveries provided by a fun filled game, played over six weeks in their own area, our young Jagriks will develop a Jagrik report card (the citizens performance rating on keeping the Samvidhan alive), as well as recommendations which they will share through nationwide public events. These will also be shared with Governors’ and President’s offices, with activists, civil society representatives, media practitioners, policy makers and politicians. There will be 40 + 1 public engagement events over the course of the journey.
The public initiative will kick off on 26th November, celebrating Constitution Day and will culminate on Republic Day, 26th January, 2017.We believe the project if adopted by youth across the country can act as a robust reality check and should not be dismissed as just another reality show.

SMILE In-Turn-Ship Programme

In winter break this year, we invite you to explore yourself while exploring the world. 
Apply to the SMILE In-Turn-Ship programme that will give you a chance to deepen your understanding of yourself and the world around you through social engagement. As a part of the programme you will attend camps focused on active citizenship, work with organizations/ movements in various parts of the country for a period of 2 weeks in December/January and meet like-minded people from diverse backgrounds. 

SMILE is Pravah's flagship program for young people looking to engage with social issues. This year, this journey has expanded in partnership with UNESCO- MGIEP and is the YESPeace SMILE India Journey. We invite you to register and flow in the journey with us.

International Citizen Service

International Citizen Service (ICS) is an exciting three month volunteering programme by Pravah and VSO; funded by the UK Government. The programme offers volunteering opportunities to Indian and UK nationals. The programme offers an opportunity to engage with social and developmental issues, to effectively contribute in local communities and to develop personal skills. ICS volunteers leave the programme as better-informed active citizens with new skills for life – and to offer to potential employers.
The ICS programme has multiple cycles around the year. Trainings for every cycle are held one month prior to start of placement. The cycles will start in July, September, October and November
Host community: Volunteers will be placed with a grassroots organisation in a rural community in India.  
Counterpart Pairs: Each Indian volunteer will be paired with one counterpart from UK with whom they live for the 3 months in community.

Volunteers have delivered education awareness peer education sessions in government schools, Self Help Groups, youth groups, women and children’s groups. These sessions were on issues of hygiene, sanitation, hand washing, nutrition, sexual health and reproductive rights, menstrual health, career planning and adolescent issues.
