Praxis Institute for Participatory Practices began as an initiative of Action Aid in 1992, before registering as an independent non-profit organisation in 1997. Primarily a research organisation, Praxis aims to increase participation in the development process and build the foundations for a more equitable society.

Praxis India is leading a study to measure the effectiveness of a new film-based intervention in shifting girls and young women’s knowledge, attitudes and confidence to take action against exploitative workplace practices. The baseline study found that two-thirds of the cohort lacked knowledge of their basic employment rights and this measure will be repeated 12 months later to detect change over time.
