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.

Today as we come to an end of the youth week, we want to let you know that it doesn’t end here. We are here to continue to support our youth through their mental health struggles and beyond!
Mental wellbeing cannot be achieved in one week. We all need to constantly work to find balance and happiness in our life. It’s okay if you get thrown off track for a while, it happens to everyone. We will not let the conversation end here and we encourage everyone else to check in with their friends, family, and loved ones to see how they are truly doing.
Let’s protect our youth and help them flourish by letting them know that it’s okay to not be okay and we will be with them through it all!

Sighting your strengths
How nice and motivating it is to spell ones strengths! An enabling, enlightening and encouraging experience isn't it?

Did you know that J.K Rowling, Shah Rukh Khan, and Manisha Koirala have struggled with their mental health in the past? All of their stories have tales of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, body dysmorphia, etc. And now, they are speaking out against the shame people associate with mental health struggles.

Our youth needs to know that battling a mental illness is not the end. It can be overcome - like a physical illness. We are here to listen, share and help. Looking towards these successful people who have overcome their personal battles is an inspiration. The lesson is to talk to those around you who have struggled in the past! You will be amazed at how much opening up to someone around you can help.
