Work and Achievements
VIDYA is a registered not-for-profit organisation that has been dedicated to education and empowerment of underprivileged children, youth and women through micro-level intervention for the last 30 years.
VIDYA today is a multi-layered organization that has initiated grass-root level development programmes in some of the poorest neighborhoods in Delhi, Haryana, Mumbai and Bangalore. These include programmes in remedial education, computer training, open school, adult literacy, skills training and social entrepreneurship.
We have made a difference in the lives of over 3,00,000 families and are supported by a strong team of 350 personnel. The team includes local and foreign volunteers, teachers and staff as well as a large circle of committed friends, donors and well wishers. Their efforts paved the way for the establishment of The VIDYA School Gurgaon in November 2009, which provides state-of-the-art infrastructure for holistic educational training to underprivileged children at par with the best public schools in the country. The School is a CBSE affiliated educational institution with classes from Nursery to Standard 12th.
Through 30 years of working together to encourage awareness and self-worth amongst the economically challenged, VIDYA has grown to be synonymous with stories of incredible success. Our wide spectrum of activities clearly speaks our mission, which is to educate, empower and transform lives.
VIDYA activities can broadly be divided into 2 main areas –Holistic Education and Women’s empowerment programmes.
