Dr. Avinash Saoji, the founder of ‘PRAYAS’, after passing out MBBS from GMC, Nagpur in 1983 decided then only ‘what not to do in his life’. One thing he decided was not to apply his knowledge & skills for making money, but to use it for those who are in need. He lived at & worked for villages, for initial 22 years, where no services were available. He also decided not to go for post-graduation, as he believed in reaching out to masses with basic knowledge, rather than giving more specialised services to few. He worked with a NGO in tribal & rural area for 10 years, as full time volunteer, mainly in the field of community health. PRAYAS emerged out as the need felt by Dr. Avinash Saoji to work independently, to move forward towards the destination. PRAYAS believes that equilibrium in all four dimensions of health (Life) viz.; Physical, Mental, Social and Spiritual, is an essential prerequisite for actualization of innate human potential and the contentedness in life. It is absent in lives of most of us today, mainly because of the craziness for money & power & the materialistic attitude in general. PRAYAS is working towards this realization through various programs for all the three generations.
