Diksha provides free and quality education to children from low-income families in the neighborhood. A core-group of volunteers along with salaried teachers and donors from the community have created a safe and stimulating learning environment that allows 250 children to develop a healthy body and mind.
Education: All children receive subject-based instruction by trained teachers based on the Central Board of Secondary Education curriculum, which includes reading and language arts in English and Hindi, mathematics, science, social studies, and computers. There are up to 30 children in each class with one to two teachers depending on the age group. During the admission process, children undergo a basic academic assessment for the purpose of classroom placement. As the school year progresses, those who demonstrate greater aptitude for learning in most subjects are given the opportunity to advance to the next grade based on merit.
Mid-Day Meal: In addition to a healthy mid-day snack, Diksha provides a daily meal to the children. This has been made possible only through the outstanding support of the community. Cooking is done in the school kitchen maintaining high standards of hygiene. It is heartening to watch the children do justice to the simple meal of lentils like rajma and chana with rice and seasonal vegetables. Sometimes they have an added treat of a dessert fondly provided by a well-wisher.
