Welcome to Praxis

Praxis-Institute for Participatory Practices is a development support organisation committed to mainstreaming the voices of the poor and marginalised sections of society in the quest for equity and governance. We believe that for development to be sustainable, the process must be truly participative.


We are guided by the twin principles of Social Equity & Governance. The pursuit of social equity recognises the absence of a level playing field and the need for affirmative action. Praxis believes that equality, of opportunities and of the right to participation, and social justice are essential to establish an inclusive society. 

 

For development processes and institutions to be inclusive, governance needs to be pro-poor, democratic, accountable and transparent. Praxis believes that the state bears a critical responsibility to facilitate access to development opportunities and social justice to marginalised communities and good governance implies that the government’s arms/institutions succeed in achieving an equitable society.

 

Praxis engages in participatory research and capacity-building towards this end, advocating for the rights of the excluded to live a life of dignity and choice.
