What: PRAGATI 2015
When: 1-3 October, 2015
Why: Started in 2009 by Vibha and continued in 2011 and 2013, PRAGATI has played an important role in developing better understanding among social entrepreneurs and social sector organizations for developing grass root ideas into scalable community solutions. It also provides an environment among all the social sector projects to learn from each other.
The three-day conference will provide a common platform to all the stakeholders and is structured and designed to share expert opinions and experiences of prominent leading personalities with diverse experiences in the field. The discussions and sessions at the event will address issues and topics related to impact assessment of social sector projects, importance of public private partnership, inclusive education and improving the quality of education in government schools among others.

PRAGATI 2015 brings all its partner projects to one platform with a mission to ‘Connect, Share and Leverage’.
