“Be the change you want to see in the world” – Mahatma Gandhi
Half of the Indian population is below the age of 25. Simultaneously, the bitter fact is that India contributes 37% to the world illiterate population. It rests upon our shoulder that how we keep the fate of the country from being gloomy.
Ask yourself:
Do you get bothered when you see children searching food in garbage to ensure survival?
Do you feel unhappy when you see young children collecting scrap metal at the age they are meant to be in school?
Do you think that YOU can bring a change in someone’s life?

Watching children studying at schools near his slum, Virendra dreamt of following their suit and going to school. Unfortunately, being a daily wage labor to a contractor, his father could not afford his education. He lives in a small room in Dhobi Basti with a family of 7. His home is a temporary establishment provided by the contractor. Virendra seemed to have no choice but to follow the steps of his father to become a labor himself.

After getting associated with Disha, Virendra has connected with his dreams of studying at school. Today he dreams of becoming a teacher rather than a laborer.

At Disha, we believe that each one of us can be the catalyst to a positive change. Each of us can lend a hand in the formation of educated India.

Help millions of other children discover education. Help them by replacing bricks and brooms in their hands by books.

Donate and be a part of responsible India.
