We at DIKSHA run a non-profit school providing free and quality education to children from low-income families in Palam Vihar, Gurugram, Haryana, India.
Children are nurtured with respect and taught to be responsible citizens in today’s world. CBSE based academic education is provided by our teachers who receive on-going professional development and are mentored by experienced volunteers. Children are encouraged to learn a variety of extra-curricular activities such as folk art, dance, drama, music, life-skills and yoga and participate in inter-house and inter-NGO Sports Events.
The idea is to give these children an equalizing platform so they are able to compete and perform in an environment that would otherwise seem beyond their reach.
Who we are
We are a core group of volunteers and paid teachers who with the support of donors from the community have created a safe, stimulating learning environment that allows over 420 children from disadvantaged families to develop a healthy body and mind.
