Diksha School has about 300 growing children from disadvantaged families and is located in an urban area.
There is an increasing need of security for the school children during the school hours. At present there is a security guard who sits at the gate. With the harsh summer heat and the monsoon rains, it becomes difficult for the guard to conduct his duties without the proper weather protection.
A porta cabin for the security guard would resolve this situation. The presence of the Security Guard cabin would also be a visual deterrent to miscreants around the school neighborhood. We are therefore starting this campaign with the help of Milaap.About Diksha
Diksha is a non-profit school in Palam Vihar, Gurgaon, Haryana, India established to provide free and quality education to children from low-income families in the neighborhood.
A core-group of volunteers along with salaried teachers and donors from the community have created a safe, stimulating learning environment that allows 300 children to develop a healthy body and mind. Children are nurtured with respect and taught to be responsible citizens in today’s world. 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.
