A society built on legitimate rights, equity and a self-reliant culture.
Crisis: Despite the enactment of Right to Education Act and several other initiatives of the Government for educating children, more than a quarter of children in Delhi, remain out of school. This is exactly where Deepalaya steps in. We understand the fact that how education can change someone's life. With an aim to empower and educate children from underprivileged backgrounds.
Programs: a) Deepalaya runs schools and learning centers that lay stress on all-round development of children. They are given an opportunity to showcase their talents at different forums. b) Deepalaya strongly believes that differently abled children can learn to lead a normal life if they have effective access to services like early identification, intervention, education, vocational training and employment opportunities. c) The Institutional Care program initiated by Deepalaya that seeks to provide shelter and care to children from difficult circumstances, victims of child abuse, children of HIV/ AIDS positive parents, children of sex workers or any other vulnerable categories. d) Deepalaya began Self-Help groups in Haryana. Women who were barely housewives (trapped in their homes) got an opportunity to showcase their special abilities and powers to live on their own. e) Deepalaya also addresses the health care needs of underprivileged members of communities in Delhi, they also have a mobile van that travels to villages, providing health check-ups and basic treatment to individuals
Outcome: Till today, Deepalaya has been able to reach out to 31 0,827 children and a major of them went on to continue their education after schooling. The NGO has set up 1335 SHGs for women empowerment programs with 15,632 supportive members. Deepalaya provided free health checkups to 80,000 individuals in the remote regions of Delhi.
