Prayas is an AID India project focused on the community of Naya Bans, Sector 16, Noida - a slum community of 5000.
Prayas runs a non-formal school for underpriviledged children, preparing them so that they can go to nearby schools and providing after-school support to minimize the drop-out rate.
From its humble beginnnings in 2005, they are now catering to 96 children today, most of whom would not have been going to school without Prayas' efforts. This year they are going to start their own elementary school with two rooms and three full-time teachers.
