Prayatna is a non-profit organization striving to bring about a difference in the society we live in. It works in the fields of Healthcare, Education, Livelihood, Youth Management, and Disaster Management. It started in 2003 in Bihar after getting registered under the Indian Societies Registration Act (1860), and works to improve the quality of life of the people living in the rural areas. Many welfare activities have been organized in such communities like free health checkups, educational support to the poor and the like.
