We're VIDYA. Here's What We Do.

An excommunicated widow who is now a successful business owner. A dropout youth who became a high scorer and a proud graduate. A 9-year old girl who persuaded her abusive, alcoholic father to go into rehab. A girl in our eighth grade class who dreams of going back to her home town and changing it from the ground up. A 10th standard girl who scored a perfect 10.0 CGPA.

VIDYA makes stories like this happen. We're a 34-year old NGO based in India that believes in social change through empowering the most vulnerable members of underprivileged communities: the children, youth and women. We create peerless programs with our approach of holistic, practical education and vocational training. Join us, donate or just spread the word.

Educate. Empower. Transform.

Even small contributions create large impacts
