The VIDYA Story
VIDYA is a 30-year-old non-profit that empowers and educates the most vulnerable members of India’s underprivileged communities– the children, women and youth. We’re active in Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai, Gurgaon and Pune.
The women in an underprivilged community are often its most vulnerable members. VIDYA believes that it’s the mother that has the most influence on a child’s life. Mothers are especially integral to the child getting an education, and also a child’s attitudes to the most important social issues of modern India. This is why we think that to empower a mother is to empower a child.
VIDYA Bangalore is currently composed of the VIDYA Bhagini Women’s Centre and the VIDYA Bhavishyayaan Beyond School programs. The Beyond School program works through government schools and teaches spoken English, IT skills and life skills to augment and harmonize the quality of education the children receive at this level. The Bhagini Women’s Centre runs projects that range from spoken english and life skills to vocational training, sewing, cooking, fashion design, professional driving, IT Skills and many more. The reasoning is simple: enable a woman to be financially independent, self-confident and an equal citizen, and true social change will naturally follow.
