PRAJA's Team
How do we get to know more?

Not just by making rounds of the prisons periodically and believing that that will provide the information and insights required for change and reform!

PRAJA is working projects in several States to construct in-depth profiles of prisoners and staff for better understandings of the problems of the men, women and children who are locked up inside and of the realities of the institution we call prison.

The realities are:
  • that those who are sent to prison particularly in countries like India (and indeed all developing countries) are for the most part poor, uneducated and powerless

  • Prisoner profile constructed through PRAJA's research-cum-action projects reveal the general percentages of uneducated and illiterate people in jail
