Pragya Solutions is a group with the aim of creating, undertaking and supporting impactful development programming. We work throughout South Asia, operating through a network of autonomous country-specific entities in Bangladesh, India and Nepal, as well as in partnership with close associates in other parts of the world. Every country organisation possesses expertise in international development and competence in various Thematic Areas and Project Monitoring & Management, and works with grassroots civil society organisations, academic and research institutions, as well as State actors, in the respective countries, for effective delivery on projects. Pragya Solutions also leverages its multilocational presence for regional studies and knowledge - sharing and management
We assist, complement and supplement development organizations and actors in the delivery of development goods and services in the socio-economic and environmental domains. We design and implement programs, working with a range of development actors including community-based organizations, non-profits, institutions, foundations and international development organizations, and the government and its departments and bodies. We aid development actors in program formulation, monitoring and evaluation; support them for organisation planning and improvement, training and process management; and foster collaborations and networks. The Pragya Solutions team also conducts policy research and develops tools and techniques for programming that facilitate the effectiveness and reach of development goods and services. Our services and solutions are targeted at local, country and regional levels.

A multi-disciplinary approach is typically followed, with a melding of specialists from social sciences and technical disciplines, in order to ensure technological appropriateness as well as social acceptance and suitability.
