Deepalaya is a non - government development organization working on issues affecting the urban and rural poor, with a special focus on children. It is because ‘Every child deserves a chance’ that the organization exists and works towards making that possible. For the past 33 years Deepalaya has been working in the urban slums of Delhi and has also made inroads into rural development in the states of Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand.
Deepalaya does not believe they are “DISABLED”, rather every Deepalayan believes that the Children with special needs are “DIFFERENTLY ABLED”. The Special Unit rehabilitates children with neurodegenerative conditions & developmental disabilities-Intellectual Disability, Cerebral Palsy, Down’s Syndrome, Autism and Muscular Dystrophy. The Hearing & Speech Impaired as well as the Visually Challenged are also taken care of. The children enrolled are in age group of 6 – 20 years.
