About Prajaak

Praajak, meaning ‘charioteer’ began its journey in 1997 with a commitment to secure a better present and future for children and youth living in historically disadvantaged communities, in confined custodial milieus and those who find themselves surviving on their own.

Praajak has consistently worked to address gender inequalities and challenged traditional notions of masculinity and patriarchy which have led to a growing body of work with boys and young men and supporting them in playing their part in creating a gender equitable society.

Praajak has 600 individual volunteer members who have supported and continue supporting different initiatives in different capacities.
