About PRASAD Chikitsa

‘Prasad’ is a Sanskrit word, which means “a gift that carries blessings” both for the one who gives and for the one who receives. We recognize that giving is as transformative as receiving. ‘PRASAD Chikitsa’ means “a divine gift of diagnosis and cure.” This belief informs all our charitable activities. We are committed to bettering the lives of people and tribal communities in the Tansa Valley, Ganeshpuri in Maharashtra, India. Our programmes nourish village communities through holistic, tailor-made developmental solutions, which promote self-reliance and sustainability.

PRASAD Chikitsa has 42 programmes that reach 45,000 number of people every year. They span various community health and development initiatives – that tackle issues ranging from HIV to cataract surgeries, and nutrition programmes that serves meals to malnourished children, as well as women’s self-help groups to empower women, environmental conservation and regenerative agricultural programmes.
