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.
In these times of doubt, we're all looking for ways to help and support one another.
Today, we in partnership with @GoodShare were fortunate enough to be able to contribute towards the distribution of groceries to a group of daily wage earners in
Kherwadi & Varsha Nagar community in Mumbai. Out of 50 kits distributed today 25 were sponsored by #GoodShare and 25 by VIDYA.
We would like to inform you that due to health regulations passed by the Government of India for COVID- 19 virus, we have decided to reschedule the VIDYA School Annual Day, "Pukaar- Mission Paani" to 25 April, 2020, 5 PM onwards.
We look forward to your presence and being part of the program!
