The PRASAD Project is a global charitable organization, committed to uplifting the lives of economically disadvantaged women, children and families. Our programs in India, Mexico, and the U.S. impact thousands of people annually.

At PRASAD, we are fully invested in the people and communities we serve and wholly committed to their well-being and empowerment. PRASAD takes a holistic approach and works in harmony with the environment. Our programming is wide-ranging because these most vulnerable people face numerous hardships - malnutrition, lack of access to clean water and to economic and educational opportunities, to name a few - and addressing one need at a time is not enough.

Currently, we offer programs that include general and specialized medical and dental care, water security and sanitation, agriculture and environment, education, women's empowerment, and food security. Offered together, these programs empower individuals and families and create sustainable communities.
