Imagine living in a slum where the approach is non-existent and taking the by-lane involves hopping to avoid piles of dirt. You wake up every day in a house that may be demolished any time and you step out to go to work at a stranger’s apartment so that you can put some food on the table. You’re just another slum dwelling woman and child in India.
Deepalaya is an NGO that operates in the urban and rural slums/villages of Delhi, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand. We strongly believe that everyone has the right to education and aim to provide quality education to the underprivileged. Our cause, while noble, faces countless challenges, the biggest being – lack of resources.
Deepalaya operates 6 formal and many non-formal schools, projects for girl child education and women empowerment, a special unit for the differently abled, an Institutional Care Centre for runaways and a hospital. A regular inflow of contribution from sponsors and donors is necessary to successfully run these projects, hire staff and ensure that the beneficiaries only have to pay a nominal user fee. This is where you can make all the difference in their world.
Your contribution can not only ensure a good and stable education for underprivileged children, but will also secure a future where these children can rise up and free their families and even their communities from the clutches of poverty.
Last year Deepalaya participated in the India Giving Challenge and raised Rs. 21,79,312. In addition to that, we also received a matching grant of Rs. 8, 68,139 from Give India and ranked third in the competition. This sum has supported 2150 children whose lives have been changed by the power of education and proper healthcare.
Donating through this website is really simple and secure. It is the best way of helping us achieve our goal. Give India will process each donation and will give you a receipt. You will also receive tax benefits for your contribution.
