Training for the update of PRAGATI website and for use of social media


To give the capacity to PRAGATI to post regular updates on its website and on social media on its ongoing activities.

Currently PRAGATI uses the system administrator of RLEK, it’s mother organization, as it does not have qualified staff to undertake the same.
However, the PRAGATI activities need to be regularly updated on the website so that the world and all the concerned people are aware about PRAGATI latest developments and unfortunately, RLEK administrator is not often available to support them.

PRAGATI has just ventured into the arena of social media through Facebook but has not started using twitter, nor does it yet have its own blog as it does not have trained staff to use social media.
The tool of social media wields a lot of power, its outreach is very wide and it’s also costless.

PRAGATI wishes to utilise the same but lags behind in this area and needs to take the expertise of volunteers to do so. Therefore PRAGATI team wishes to learn how to upload not only the latest development in their project area, but also much more, and learn to develop and manage on their own a blog and twitter account. At present the team is using Facebook but in a restricted way due to lack of knowledge on how to use and update it.

At the end of the mission the staff will be able to successfully update and maintain PRAGATI website and to use social media effectively through a blog, Facebook and twitter accounts, and therefore be able to disseminate their work and achievements in a larger scale. This will motivate other women from other states to get involved in the government system in India and in other countries.

• Training in the update of the website:

The time schedule for the mission will be as follows:
Tuesday and Thursday : 2.30 pm to 4.30 pm = 4 hours per week. For 8 weeks

Panchayati Rule And Gender Awareness Training Institute (PRAGATI)


PRAGATI was carved out of a renowned NGO ‘Rural Litigation and Entitlement Kendra (RLEK)’ on 10th February 2000. It was founded by a group of passionate, dynamic women who operate the organization with belief in the Democratic Principle “By the women, for the women and of the women” to attain gender equity in local governance in the states of Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand and Haryana.

The organization comprises only women working for the upliftment of women. The management board also consists of women. These women are drawn from diverse fields and have a wide range of experiences in the fields of rural development, management, community mobilization, gender, law, governance, monitoring and evaluation.

PRAGATI was created to achieve the Vision to build a gender just society and to accomplish the mission to enhance the status of women in social, economic and political spheres.
PRAGATI focuses on providing a support system to deliver good governance and capacitate women - the need of the hour of rural, poverty ridden, unreached, vulnerable people.
As a Resource Centre, building innovative strategies and practices to broaden the women political education, vision and skills through capacity building, advocacy & lobbying, trainings, exposure, networking with emphasis on exclusive training for women representatives is central to PRAGATI.

Since its creation, PRAGATI has run more that 25 projects, such as:
- Legal Awareness Camp to make women aware of their legal rights;
- Women’s Empowerment Program through Self Help Groups;
- Augmenting Gender Equity in Local Governance through Transformative Women’s Leadership and Citizenship;
- Mobilization and formation of 180 SHGs.
- Training of Trainers for Village Resource Management Committees.

PRAGATI is involved in pre-, during- and post-election training of elected women functionaries of local self governance; and is in the second half of 2014, in the process to run four legal awareness programs.

Lack of legal literacy is not just an impediment to individual dreams but to the effective functioning of the democracy. The issues of gender and poverty increase this problem manifold. In India’s context as the population nears the 1 billion mark and with issues of poverty and social inequities becoming larger, it is time to face the challenges.

PRAGATI believes that legal literacy is the key to the all round development of the country. There is an emergent need to generate legal literacy amongst the masses especially amongst the disadvantaged sections of the society. Women, due to their low levels of literacy, are susceptible to injustices.
With the aim to impart practical knowledge about the basic legal rights and remedies provided under various women-related laws, thereby making them fit to face the challenges in real life situations, the four legal awareness programs are ran by PRAGATI, with the support of National Commission for Women, in the districts of Haridwar (blocks Bahadrabad and Luxar) and Dehradun (blocks Raipur and Sahaspur) of Uttarakhand. In order to seek justice for all, safeguard rights and promote legal empowerment of the society there, emerges a need for making the local populace legally aware about their rights and entitlements.

PRAGATI also acts as resource agency in various projects of RLEK.

Via its activities PRAGATI supports approximately 6,500 women. These women are belonging to marginalized communities living below the poverty line, Self Help Groups women and elected women functionaries from entire state of Uttarakhand.

PRAGATI’s activities are funded by different Ministries and Government departments such as Ministry of Minority Affairs, National Commission For Women etc. to name a few.

PRAGATI works in the rural parts of India and concentrates its activities in the states of Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh.

PRAGATI employs 11 staff and gets support from 20 local volunteers. PRAGATI also has more than 40 interns coming each month from various universities of India and abroad. Their work is equivalent to 10 full time employees.

Le financement d’une mission

Pourquoi payer pour partir en mission ?

Planète Urgence a fait le choix de s’associer à de petites structures, qui n’ont pas les moyens de rémunérer leurs volontaires mais qui ont un réel besoin d’appui et prend donc le parti de soutenir des associations aux moyens très limités.  En savoir plus.


Outre l’organisation logistique, le don mission permet la mise en place d’un réel processus de montage de projet avec le partenaire local. Notre équipe s’assure ainsi du réel impact des missions pour les communautés. Découvrez ce que comprend les frais d’une mission.


Par ailleurs, il n’existe pas de financements publics ou institutionnels pour encourager le développement du volontariat international de courte durée sur le thème de la formation professionnelle ou du partage de compétences. C’est pourquoi Planète Urgence demande aux entreprises dans le cadre du Congé Solidaire® et aux volontaires pour les Missions Solidaires de participer aux frais de la mission.


Notre Principe de solidarité

Le don mission ne correspond pas au montant réel du coût de la mission choisie par le volontaire mais a été calculé sur la base du coût moyen de nos missions. Nous avons fait ce choix pour ne pas favoriser certaines missions moins coûteuses que d’autres et permettre ainsi à tous nos partenaires de recevoir de manière équitable des volontaires intéressés par leurs actions.


Sur le même principe, le financement des offres de volontariat repose lui aussi sur ce concept solidaire : pour une même mission de 2 semaines, le don mission du Congé Solidaire® est plus élevé que celui d’une Mission Solidaire. Le coût des missions résulte en effet d’un équilibre entre ces deux sources de financement permettant ainsi aux personnes ne bénéficiant pas du soutien de leur employeur de partir en mission.


Le don ne comprend pas :
– le billet d’avion (dans le cadre d’un Congé Solidaire®, certains employeurs peuvent assumer également le coût)
– les vaccins éventuels,
– le visa éventuel

Tout comme le don mission, ces frais peuvent donner lieu à une défiscalisation.

Les dons de missions, défiscalisable à 66%

Tous les dons de missions ouvrent droit 66% de défiscalisation. Les dons sont déduits du montant de l’impôt sur le revenu à hauteur de 66% pour les particuliers. Ainsi, par exemple, un don de 1 850 € après défiscalisation, reviendra à 629 € pour un particulier. . Les frais entourant la mission sont aussi éligibles à la défiscalisation. En savoir plus
