I served society for 10 years as staff of Deepalaya Plan Project owned by Deepalaya since 1988 to 1998. After completion of project my association with Deepalaya got discontinued then again in 1996, I got re associated with Deepalaya as Regional Coordinator(North) of Credibility Alliance which is going on. Deepalaya deserves Credibility It is a matter of honour that Deepalaya is a member of Credibility Alliance, a consortium of voluntary organisations and networks, which has come together to enhance good governance in the voluntary sector. What norms does the Credibility Alliance use to determine whether an NGO is credible or not? They include the following elements: Identity, Vision, Aims, Objectives and Achievements, Governance, Operations, Accountability and Transparency. It is mandatory for all members of the Alliance to comply with the Minimum Norms or give an undertaking that they will comply with all the Norms within a year. Deepalaya currently holds the certificate from the Allianace which reads in part as: Deepalaya adheres to the norms prescribed for good governance of voluntary organisations and is admitted to the membership of Credibility Alliance. Having earlier a decade experience and addition to that last three more year of recent experience, I can say that Deepalaya started with good work and still they are continuing their great efforts for society selflessly. They have created an atmosphere where society started thinking positively towards social work. I strongly feel Deepalaya knows the field realities and they actually work on principle of planning cum micro realization (PCMR).

The Great!

Deepalaya.. i don't have words to say about Deepalaya. that was my second home. MY ASSOCIATION WITH DEEPALAYA as a project Manager of one of the partner NGOs in which Deepalaya focused on empowering the small NGOs workig in the community. Literally, it was empowering.We have been given trainings, encouragement, guidance and support.Atlast after 2YEARS of partnership, i was able to work as a program officer of deepalaya's Education and Institutional Care sector for another two years. I have experienced the accountability and transperancy of the working system. Now i am in australia, still having contacts with the children and staff , . Here also, I feel, still as part of deepalaya and just trying to register Deepalaya Australia Foundation. The smile in the children's face at Deepalaya gram and Deepalaya Schools always give the spirit to be with the organisation.

Deepalaya, as the name suggests is really a beacon of hope for the differently abled and disadvantaged children of Delhi.The school with its majestic building is aesthetically designed and meets the standard set for differently abled children inasmuch as it has various facilities to cater to the needs of the children.It is a testimony of the good work that this NGO is doing that many organisations both in public and private domain have come forward to provide support to the organisation to remain uptodate in terms of equipments needed for this disadvantaged children. Many of the PSU's have also donated generously and have given transport facilities equipped with latest equipments to cater to the requirement of differently abled children. The campus is beatifully designed and so is the staff. With dedication and missionary zeal the organisers are moving ahead to serve the cause of these children in making it a joyous experience and to bring sunshine in to the lives of many a disadvantaged children. May the institution continue to flourish and become a pathbreaker in this segment in the mission to serve humanity through the cause of these children. I wish the team many more successes during this festive season. Shibu Mammen
