Why should a corporate partner with organization?

Prayatna is the first organisation which has started providing placement based skill development training to the most neglected population- Transgenders in the domain which attracts them the most- Beauty & Fashion designing. We have a rural base and have always chosen to work in tough terrains of rural & tribal areas such as Gaya, Muzaffarpur, Ranchi, Orissa, Mirzapur, Sohanbhadra, Gujarat etc. Our footprint in metro cities is very low as we are aware that most destitute population resides miles away from metro cities. Our direct reach is to over 80,000 last mile beneficiaries. We work with the Sustainable development approach and help corporate understand its social impact. We are also working on the Government’s vision of 'Vocal for Local' by supporting small enterprises in setting up at their own native place with an aim to restrict the migration from villages to cities. We are reaching out to the last mile artisans and farmers to provide them with necessary support so that their lives are positively impacted. Apart from this, we believe and execute shared goal partnerships and take relevant feedback from the corporate in the designing of the social impact projects so as to merge the corporate expertise as well.
