Provided Quality Education To 4854 Underprivileged Children
Deepalaya is a New Delhi based organization with projects being implemented across north India. The organization is working dedicatedly towards improving the lives of children in vulnerable conditions.
They believe that sensitisation of the community is the approach through which empowerment, capacity building and social transformation can be achieved.
One of their projects is the Institutional Care programme where they provide shelter, care and a homely atmosphere, all aimed towards a dignified life for children from difficult circumstances. These range from street and run-away children, victims of child abuse, children of lifetime convicts, children of HIV+ and AIDS patients, children of sex workers, and other vulnerable categories.
These children belong to deprived backgrounds ? on an emotional, physical and social front. When brought under the care of Deepalaya, they receive overall rehabilitation support to help overcome the deprivation in their life. Healthy nutritious meals are one component of this rehabilitation process. In addition, the emotional, social, academic/vocational rehabilitation also take place through facilities available on campus, as well as in the nearby town of Tauru.
Mr. A J Philip is the CEO of the organisation, after having served as the president of the organisation for more than 20 years. Mr. Philip served Deepalaya since it started operations in 1979, with the sole intention of providing quality education at affordable costs. The motto is to enable the child look beyond slums.
