Pratiti in Jaipur - The beginning

The Pratiti Fellowship, PFP’s flagship project, supported by UN-Habitat and the Narotam Seksharia Foundation was launched in Jaipur with the intention of galvanizing social action around Gender Based Violence (GBV) across the city via working with young people within community organizations, media, colleges and other institutions.

Between January and June, 2016, Pratiti will work with 13 young individuals from across 5 reputed social change organizations, including Magic Bus, Smile Foundation, Pravah Jaipur Initiative, Vishakha (Bagru + Udaipur) and Azad Foundation

Participants from each organization will work together to create and execute an action project revolving around any key issue they may see in their organization’s community of intervention. 

Via the Pratiti Fellowship, PFP is committed to training these participants to eventually: · 
  • Create positive shift in attitudes and beliefs on gender in their communities of work · 
  • Build their own capacity on mind-set change and addressing gender issues · 
  • Engage in direct action on a key gender issue affecting their work or community 

The first workshop!

Pratiti Jaipur began with a 3 day workshop held on 28, 29 and 30 January, 2016 at the serene premises of the Institute of Cooperative Management, Jaipur. Over the course of 3 days, the 13 participants not only engaged in intense discussions on gender and the challenges they face in their own communities, but also immersed themselves in a variety of fun activities including a screening of the understated and powerful 'When Four Friends Meet', groups skits and games.
