VIDYA Education programs provide quality education to over 5000 students across the urban slum communities of Delhi, Gurgaon, Mumbai and Bangalore. The holistic intervention is geared towards employability and development of socially responsible citizens. VIDYA school at Gurgaon is a state-of-the-art educational facility for children from marginalized communities. Also, after school programs are run in local schools or community centers to bridge the learning and developmental gaps.
Underprivileged communties exist in a vicious cycle of poverty, unemployment, and lack of education. Even with the school attendance rates now being significantly higher across the country, there is an extremely high number of dropouts and students who are unable to pursue further education and find employment. Unless we break the tag of 'first generation' learners we cannot achieve social development.
VIDYA educates and empowers the most vulnerable members of underprivileged communities-- the children, women and youth. VIDYA programs provide academic enrichment, vocational training, awareness programs, life skills and digital empowerment to children, women and youth thus molding them into socially responsible and productive citizens. They are the future leaders who will transform their own communities.
The dropout rate gets reduced as students are motivated with better learning to stay in education. Our additional focus on spoken English, IT Skills, life skills, and vocational training across all VIDYA programs, for all levels of students, significantly improves confidence, employability and the ability to find opportunities. Communities become safer and more progressive with empowered individuals going back to lead change. There is greater awareness, employability and far lesser crime.
