We're VIDYA. Here's What We Do.

An excommunicated widow who is now a successful business owner. A dropout youth who became a high scorer and a proud graduate. A 9-year old girl who persuaded her abusive, alcoholic father to go into rehab. A girl in our eighth grade class who dreams of going back to her home town and changing it from the ground up. A 10th standard girl who scored a perfect 10.0 CGPA.

VIDYA makes stories like this happen. We're a 33-year old NGO based in India that believes in social change through empowering the most vulnerable members of underprivileged communities: the women, youth, and children. We create peerless programs with our approach of holistic, practical education and vocational training. Join us, donate or just spread the word.
