Empower rural communities: PPiA Programme invites NE youth

Applications are now open for the 2024-26 cohort of the Public Policy in Action (PPiA) Praxis Residency Programme, inviting young professionals from the Northeast to empower marginalized rural communities. This initiative combines public policy practice with academic rigour to create equitable, inter-generational opportunities.

According to the Economic Survey 2022-23, 65 per cent of India’s population lives in rural areas, with nearly 47 per cent relying on agriculture for their livelihood. These statistics highlight the critical need for inclusive development and economic opportunities for underserved rural citizens. The PPiA Praxis Residency Programme addresses this need by placing learners within high-impact government programs across India, specifically targeting marginalized rural communities.
