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.

To lessen the sweltering heat of May, VIDYA introduced the Reading Corner and Film Clubs to the community. During the Summer vacations, many children from the communities do not have anything to do. They are seen roaming in the heat and tiring themselves.
VIDYA brings to the children a place where all the children from the communities can come in and gain the pleasure of reading books, watching movies and having a fun vacation.
