Prutha Goa online:
A Better Life, A Better World, Together, Today!
Prutha in Sanskrit means 'Daughter of the earth', reflecting our role as custodians of our world, our home and our society. Prutha Goa is an online magazine and news service promoting the concept of social work in its widest sense, looking at how our private lives, communities and businesses can work for our good and for the good of society. Our articles share information and encourage debate in areas as diverse as the environment, local cultures and language, the promotion and development of the arts, beneficial scientific progress, concern for nature and animals and the more traditional social work areas like the care of the elderly, the poor, children and those who are mentally or physically sick. This is an interactive resource and your input will make a real difference. Please join the debates and discussion on our Facebook page. We also welcome articles in line with our editorial policy. If you have a story about positive change in Goa we want to hear from you!
