who we are
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 28 years Deepalaya has been working in the urban slums of Delhi and has also made inroads into rural development in the states of Haryana and Uttarakhand. Deepalaya has been collaborating with other agencies, both governmental and non-governmental towards making meaningful intervention in the policy making process in the State. From the humble beginnings in 1979, Deepalaya has seen a continuous growth in staff, beneficiaries and fields of activities. Furthermore, its support base has grown from a close circle of friends to an international network of individuals, corporations and agencies. As a consequence, Deepalaya supporters have established foreign outlets in various countries in order to make use of local tax-exemption facilities and extend the visibility of the organisation across borders.
