People's Action for Rural Awakening - PARA
Environment Desk
PARA has its limitations in the face of the enormous task of social transformation. Hence every desk collaborates with other like-minded organisations and networks. Networking started in 1989 when PARA joined with others to form the Andhra Pradesh Vyavasaya Cooleela Samakhya. PARA joins hands with other regional, national and international networks such as Wada Na Todo Abhian (WNTA). PARA, along with these groups, keeps track of events like UPR -3 reports at the UN that monitors the human rights track record of the country. The Director of PARA, Fr Thomas Pallithanam, has now shifted to New York to follow up the networking for human rights at the international fora.

In 2006 PARA was accepted as the Justice and Peace Centre of the Hyderabad Province. Efforts are being initiated to involve the Salesian communities with the activities of PARA, especially with regards to Human Rights Education and Clubs. PARA works in tandem with the Province Justice and Peace Commission and Oota-Wellsprings, the Province centre for Psycho-Social Services. PARA collaborates with the Salesian Social Forum that connects Salesian Social Activists in India.
