Public Advocacy Initiatives for Rights and Values in India (PAIRVI) was formed in 1998 and registered under section 25 of the Indian Company’s Act 1956 as a company with non-profit status.

PAIRVI is a capacity building and advocacy support organization working at the intersections of rights, development and sustainability. It works with small grassroots organizations and community based groups to enhance their understanding on development discourse and capacity to respond appropriately.
