VIDYA is an NGO that empowers communities through an integrated approach by helping vulnerable members – youth, women and children- transform through education. Driven by the dictum “Empowering one, empowers the other” VIDYA envisions an India where every child gets an education, every youth an opportunity to succeed, and every woman the right to equality. With nationally-recognised programmes like remedial education, computer training, adult literacy, skills training, microfinance, and social entrepreneurship, the organisation believes in working with people at an individual level.
Programs are offered in three major cities across India, in some of the poorest neighborhoods of Delhi, Haryana, Mumbai, and Bangalore. The team comprises 350 people including local and foreign volunteers, teachers and staff and a large circle of committed friends, donors and well-wishers. We've impacted more than 3,50,000 people over 33 years. The organization continues to run with fire in her belly, to educate, empower and transform India.
A start-up idea can spark from anywhere!:
A rug from rags, and perfumed, herbal home-made soaps customised to suit ones skin tone, texture and needs was demonstrated @ A skill enhancing workshop by Priyanka Kaul @ VIDYA, Mali Foundation, Bangalore!
The thought process was handled by Deepali @ VIDYA, Mali Foundation, Bangalore, with a narration on how beliefs are instilled, how they overpower us, how they design and shape our value system, and how some get shattered by knowledge and discovery.
The session brought smiles and confidence, closing on an optimistic note transforming the formless fears into faith scripting the spark of a new beginning!
