At a time when rape cases are on the rise in Delhi NCR region, Project STEADY initiated by Asian Paints Limited under their CSR activities and implemented by Deepalaya, a Delhi-based NGO at Kasna seeks to empower girls to put up a fight during untoward circumstances.
It is the second year of Project STEADY. Deepalaya and Asian Paints have reached out to 2276 girls studying in schools located in Dankour block of Greater Noida during financial year 2005-16. The students were given three sessions of self-defense training. And around 505 students (TOT) were also trained to train other students in their schools in the absence of Deepalaya and Asian Paints Limited.
Worldwide adventures is a tourist company based at Gurgaon. Ever since their association with Deepalaya, they have been organising visits of tourists to our project locations. While the tourists get to know about the country, it helps us in brand building exercise for Deepalaya. On a few occasions, the visitors also contributed for our cause.
15 students from Grace school, USA visited Deepalaya Education on Wheels project on 28th March, 2016. The visit was organized by World wide adventures. The intention of the students was to conduct some activities with the children enrolled at the center and assess their learning skills simultaneously. The students along with two coordinators spent around two hours with the students.
