Annual Report 2018-2019

When Rashmi Misra was living at the IIT Delhi campus in 1985, she used to see the same five girls from the neighboring slum playing in a stream adjacent to the campus wall. One day, she approached them and asked them why they weren't at school. They looked at each other, then at her, with incredulous expressions, and said, "don't you know girls don't go to school?"

VIDYA started then, in 1985, with Rashmi herself educating these five underprivileged girls in her apartment. Over the last 34 years VIDYA has impacted 3,75,000 people, with centers in Delhi, Gurgaon, Mumbai, Bangalore and Pune. Our goal is ensuring employability and self-sufficiency for each individual whom we serve. Our programs address literacy as multifaceted - encompassing academia, vocational education, mental and physical health, life skills, social awareness, and values. 

2018-2019 has been another eventful year with many new beginnings and success stories. Please take a look at our attached annual report to know more about everything we've achieved this year. 

Please note that many of the names of our beneficiaries have been changed to protect their privacy, and the rest have been printed with their permission.
