RASTA was established to work with the disadvantaged sections of society, and focuses on their upliftment through health programs, education, vocational training and community mobilization. RASTA has been recognized for its work and has been awarded an Appreciation Certificate by the Secretary, Education Department, Government of Delhi.

Some of their activities are as follows:

  • Educational Program: Education of children is Rasta’s main mission. Since inception, over 20,700 children have been educated at Rasta through interventions like Creche, Balwadi, Pre-school, non- formal education, remedial education, distance education & adult education. The pre-schools prepare children for formal schooling, non-formal education facilitates education for dropouts, remedial education helps students cope with what is taught in school, and adult education and distance education tackles illiteracy in adults. Children and parents become active stakeholders in the process of learning.
