I have known DEEPALAYA from close quarters since the bigining. It had an humble start with few slum children at Kalkaji. The sincere hardword and dedication of its members and staff and the vision of its leaders have paved the way towards an organisation which it is today. It has done yeomen service in the field of child development. The magnitude of the task undertaken by it is really great and it has brought the fulfilment of several dreams of many downtrodden children who otherwise would never have seen the corridors of education. They really deserve awards and recognition which I am sure will propel them to do greater task in the future.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The children getting the benefit. They are future of our country and giving them a strong foundation will really benefit the future mankind

I got a chance to interact with Deepalaya when my daughter volunteered. I am amazed with their work, especially in education. They have set up quality schools to provide education to slum/underpriviliged children. waslso impressed with their home (and School) for homless kids at Guspethi. The children seemed to thrive in a clean, loving, nourishing and nurturing envioronment. Even the various employees that I interacted with appeared personally committed to mission of Deepalaya.

meeting with some of the alumni of Deepalaya. These young men and women have inspiring stories to tel. They have managed to extricate themselves from the circumstances of their birth with Depalaya's help.

My mother is a teacher in Deepalaya and it is through her that I have come to know about the organization. My experience of the school is that it is sincerely devoted to its goal of educating slum children, especially the girl child. The school takes special interest in encouraging parents to send their children to school and also provides them with vocational training to help them find a job. My mother thoroughly enjoys the experience of teaching these children and she feels that she is contributing substantially to the needs of our country by virtue of her job at Deepalaya.

What you see at Deepalaya is the result of a dedicated, selfless team committed to a noble cause. The vibrant faces of the children at the school is a reflection of hope, probably what you see in 'Slumdog Millionaire'. In an era of 'anything can be bought', the team at Deepalaya demonstrates Giving is nobler than receiveing. The integrity and honesty of the team is praise worthy. I am sure that the last penny of my small contribution reaches the target group.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The things which I enjoyed or rather touched me was the committment of the team. Working in an envirnoment where, at all levels,bribing is required, I have seen them going pillar to pillar, persisting with their request without giving bribe.

Deepalaya is a great organization and Mr. T.K Mathews , who heads the organization is totally devoted and has done great wonders with children in general and the public at large.Being indirectly associated with Rotary, I have been reading a lot about the good work Mr. Mathews is initiating via Deepalaya. I regularly get Deepalayas newsletter and am very impressed with all the work the organization is doing, at the level and scale that it is doing and how it is impacting so many lives by bringing about a turn around in life styles due to their guidance , training and exposure. Given a chance someday I would like to work as a volunteer with this great organization. Their contrbution towards training of children with special needs is commendable.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

There school building in kalkaji, the kind of volunteers , the well cared of look of the students who can be viewed trru well maintained buses. I know that it is a state of the art institute.
