About DIKSHA

DIKSHA is a non-profit school in Palam Vihar, Gurgaon, India established to provide free and quality education to about 400 children from low-income families in the neighborhood. Children are typically from migrant labor families living in jhuggis (make-shift homes) and belong to economically weaker sections living in Chauma village, Dharam colony, Carterpuri and New Palam Vihar, found loitering in the streets begging for alms or drop outs from up to three previous schools.


C.B.S.E based academic education is provided by salaried teachers who receive on-going professional development and are mentored by experienced volunteers. Children are encouraged to learn a variety of extra-curricular activities such as folk art, dance, drama, music and yoga and participate in inter-house and inter-NGO sports meets. Diksha supplies a nutritious mid-day meal (prepared on the premises daily) and a snack to each child in addition to uniforms, shoes and books. Periodic dental and medical check up is given to all students by volunteering organizations and doctors. Parents are an integral part of Diksha and participate in regular parent-teacher meetings and workshops on hygiene, nutrition and non-violence. Parents are encouraged to lend their expertise to support the school.



About the Campaign

Every academic year, children are provided with both summer and winter uniforms. The winter uniforms are usually recycled however the summer uniforms are provided yearly due to wear and tear and the extreme summer heat in northern India. The uniforms are provided by a wholesaler at very competitive rates.

How can you help?

A small contribution of approximately Rs 500 (about $7.5 US) will help a child receive a set of school books for the academic year starting in April. We are running this campaign for 400 children as we are expecting an additional 50 children to join in the new session starting in April.
