Praxis UK : who we work with

At the core of all of our programme work are those we primarily work with – excluded, marginalised and discriminated groups throughout the world. Groups that want a voice, but don’t have one. However we don’t speak for excluded groups, they can speak for themselves. Rather we strive to listen and learn from communities about what they want to say in regarding their lives, before facilitating a capacity building process for them to have it.

Groups we have particular experience of working with include:

  • The poorest of the poor in both urban and rural areas
  • Scheduled castes and tribes
  • Communities most vulnerable to climate change
  • People Living with HIV
  • People vulnerable to HIV: men-who-have-sex-with men, sex workers, transgender communities and drug users
  • Youth and elder groups
  • People living with mental health issues
  • Communities most vulnerable to disasters
