Bangalore is a city of 8.5 million people in Southern India. It’s the “IT capital”, and well-known for its greenery, culture, cuisine, and thriving entrepreneurial space. The rapid economic growth that Bangalore has witnessed over the past 2 decades has created ever-widening social divides.
VIDYA Bangalore has been addressing the economic and social inequities for the past 10 years by empowering the most vulnerable members of underprivileged communities – children, youth and women – through a holistic approach that includes access to quality education and training and instilling life skills and values.
VIDYA Bangalore’s programs have been growing in scope and reach over the years. We have impacted 10000+ beneficiaries, awarded 2500+ certificates through various programs in govt. schools, VIDYA centres and in the communities since its inception in 2010.
