Impact

Every monthly donation provides life skills to differently abled people like Raisa

Change can be as overwhelming as a tidal wave. For Raisa, coming from a conservative family, joining Diya was a move that demanded a lot. Initially, the swirl of activity around her left her feeling bewildered. Working with Raisa, the staff helped create yet another story of tremendous transformation.

Beginning with making paper-mache bowls, she now makes magazine holders without any assistance. With a constant smile on her face, Raisa is especially great at communicating with her team members.

Raisa's leadership skills have grown immensely and in the absence of Raju, the trainer of her group, she takes on the responsibility of allocating work to others, ensuring everyone has the raw materials required and closes the day by ensuring that the workspaces are clean.

Program Description

Diya Foundation works on providing Vocational Training and employment for the differently abled in Bangalore. Once identified, beneficiaries are assessed to gauge their strengths and interests before placing them in a training unit that aligns with their skill. Trainees go through pre-vocational training before they start the program. Here, they train on interpersonal skills and group dynamics as a preparatory process.

Apart from training in making handmade products, Diya Foundation also trains them in life skills and communication skills. Depending on their challenges, limitations, and strengths, their production goals are set. Once these goals are met, newer targets are set. This is done till the trainee masters the skill.

Donations made to this program support the cost of trainer's salary and administrative expenses.The program not only trains them to be financially independent but also equips them with skills that give them confidence and belief in their own abilities.

About The NGO

Diya Foundation (DIYA)
Diya Foundation (DIYA) Logo
Diya Foundation (DIYA)

Diya Foundation has the mission to enrich the quality of life and bring dignity to differently-abled adults by training them in life skills and vocational skills, building support systems and enhancing awareness in the community. Every individual has the right to be loved and respected. Thus, Diya Foundation strives to see individuals who are intellectually challenged, live with dignity, pride, and confidence in the present and future.

People at Diya Foundation are given pre-vocational and life skills training to make them eligible for future employment, thereby enabling them to live a life of dignity. Diya Innovations Pvt Ltd is a project of Diya Foundation that provides employment to the differently-abled. Diya Foundation is an instigator, bridging the significant gaps that specially-abled individuals otherwise face once they complete school. Through training, intellectually challenged adults are taken on a journey from self-awareness to expressing their self-worth, striving towards self-organization and finally self-actualization.

They have completely transformed the lives of those whose parents were constantly worried about their future and safety, by making them self-reliant. Diya Foundation believes in pushing the boundaries when it comes to the word 'impossibe'.
