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 all the wonderful men all over the world, thank you for being who you are.
If you are going through difficult times, or even just feeling neglected, please know that the world cares about you. Let's use today to really listen to one another without believing we already have all the answers and know the other's story.

VIDYA's underlying philosophy is leadership for tomorrow.
The VIDYA School, Gurugram, our flagship project runs a state of the art school campus with all the essential facilities and infrastructure that are required for the nurturing and flowering of academic, intellectual, creative and artistic excellence in the youth and children of today. We believe that it is entirely possible and necessary to provide less privileged children with the same quality of education and exposure one would receive at an elite school. Because opportunity and quality education is every child's right!
A proud moment for the VIDYA School students as their achievements, zeal and passion to fulfill their dreams gets acknowledged by NDTV anchor Ms Sonal Mehrotra, on her program Youth Quake.
