Sahyog is a committed NGO working towards the empowerment of slum dwellers. It was started in 2002 with the vision to bring smiles in the lives of underprivileged people. The word "Sahyog" beckons cooperation; to walk in cooperation with each other is what Sahyog is all about. Sahyog gives its Sahyog in providing quality education to slum children with an aim to facilitate their all round development and finally to mainstream these children into government schools.
Sahyog is all about working in synergy with all the stakeholders of our community. Shekhar, the founder of Sahyog, happened to chance upon two small children working in a tea shop instead of attending school. This motivated him and a group of people sharing his dream to help children, start Sahyog.
The programme began with five students which has now risen to 1850 students in 21 centres and 750 women in Adult literacy centers in Sultanpuri, Mangolpuri, Shakti Nagar, Nihal Vihar, Burari, Moti Nagar, Bawana, Budh Vihar, Gulabi Bagh, R.P Bagh. Delhi and NCR.
Students are provided adequate infrastructure and regular support from teachers to prevent their dropout rate from school. The organisation is also flexible about supporting various other campaigns such as organising health camps, supporting the cause of women, destitute old people and so on. Till date, the organisation has been running with the help of cooperation extended by their team members, friends and relatives.
Due to the happiness and response that they received from the beneficiaries, they long to spread our arms to reach out to more people. They need help in their mission to reach out to a minimum of 5000 underprivileged students within next two years. Every Sahyog you make will bring smiles to thousand.
