Milestones

We started in India in 2005. Over the last two decades, we have grown organically – inspired and driven by the enthusiasm of people in other countries to learn more about our approach and adapt it to their context. We are still growing. As of May 2022, we have 17 member organisations working in 15 countries across three continents collectively known as the PAL Network.
