About Pazhakulam Social Service Society-PASSS

Pazhakulam Social Service Society (popularly known as PASSS), is a secular, Non-Governmental, Social organisation promoting development support activities to the weaker sections in the rural areas of Kerala, since 1980.

A massive Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) exercise was launched in all the districts covered by PASSS from 1995 onwards to sensitise the community to the potentials of participatory analysis, identification of local issues/resource gaps, address the issue of resource mobilisation, design Participatory Implementation and Evaluation methods, involving in Participatory Learning through Action (PLA), Participatory Development of Technologies (PTD) etc.
