With 25 million residents, Delhi is the world’s second most populous city. It is the capital city of India, and as one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, it boasts of a unique history and culture.

But the city also includes over a hundred villages within its administrative borders. Large slums were created when people from the hinterland migrated to the city, which was not prepared for such an influx of people. While these communities are largely unlettered, they are determined and hardworking. VIDYA has been helping these communities as an NGO for thirty years. We believe that they can be empowered to become models for sustainability and prosperity to the rest of the country.
