Education for Underprivileged Children
Diya India Foundation firmly believes; every child must exercise their Right to Education. To support this belief, we initiated “Gurukul “to prepare the young minds of India. The Foundation currently supports two schools: Chetan Vidya Mandir and Chetan Play Way at Nihal Vihar, a slum area of Delhi. This initiative aims at providing an opportunity to underprivileged children so as to bring them in from streets to schools.
The Foundation is committed to providing and supporting these children with quality education and regular health check-ups. The children are provided with books, uniforms, shoes and stationary along with professionally trained teachers and clean infrastructure.
Did you know that at least 35 million children in India, aged 6 to 14, do not attend school? 53% of girls in the ages between 5 to 9 are illiterate. Also, the literacy ratio of India is 65.38% with male literacy at 75.85% and female literacy at 54.16%.
