Help Educate A Disadvantaged Child

DIKSHA is a non-profit school in Palam Vihar, Gurgaon, India established to provide free and quality education to about 350 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, Caterpuri and New Palam Vihar, found loitering in the streets begging for alms or drop outs from up to three previous schools.

Sponsoring such a child's education will go a long way in helping the child develop into a responsible and independent adult. The curriculum is designed to encourage participation in extracurricular activities as well. Each child is made to recognize and nurture what he/she identifies as their life skills and attributes and is prompted to add other facets to these skills to become a well-rounded individual. There are great opportunities also provided for sports, drama, dance and art forms. Your generous sponsorship for a needy child's education at Diksha will open the door to his or her future.

How can you help?

Education is not a privilege, but a human right. If those who have resources can kindle the sense of inclusiveness in them, they will do what is needed for the world.

Roger donated $1,350

We visited the school last week and were truly touched by the incredible work the Captain and his team have done to create this safe, educational and above all happy environment for all 340 kids. We played a game of football, visited their arts and crafts and computer lab. We have pulled together donations from our team at BT along with friends and family and hope we can support your work further in the future. Roger O'Gorman and the Team at BT.
