THE PRAJNYA COMMUNITY

Since its founding, Prajnya has depended largely on volunteers and we have been exceptionally lucky to find dedicated volunteers who not only share a sense of ownership but also stick around indefinitely. Therefore, a listing of Prajnya people is incomplete without a listing of those who have built Prajnya with love, commitment and all sorts of other resources!
