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.
The day started on a super exciting note with the world famous Indian boxing champion Vijender Singh visiting the VIDYA School Gurugram today. Mr Singh addressed our students and inspired them by sharing his experiences. He said that only 'hardwork and focus' make a true sportsman.
We thank Baazi Games for giving us this opportunity to host Vijender Singh at VIDYA. Indeed an honor for us!
