Deepalaya is privileged to have donors, who would go an extra mile to help the NGO, without any effort from our end. Ms. Jyoti is associated with our special unit for the last few years when she was working with Pepsico. As she moved from Pepsico and joined the HR department of Unicharm India Private Limited, she endeavored to maintain the warmth she had for Deepalaya Special unit.
In order to engage the employees, Ms. Jyoti invited Deepalaya to organise a stall on July 1 at their Gurgaon office. Nikki, a 13-year old paraplegic child went along with Ms. Sangeeta Kardam and Ms. Jyoti from the special unit for organising the stall. Ms. Sangeeta introduced the special unit to the employees by giving a presentation showcasing a few success stories. Thereafter, she exhibited the beautiful products made by special kids.
Since its inauguration last year in the month of October, library at Deepalaya Sanjay Colony learning center has gained momentum. However, till now it has been used by the students studying in the center. We have a trained librarian and volunteers who can eventually evolve the library into a community library under the guidance of Mridula Koshy.
With this aim in mind, Ms. Pushpa Khurana, librarian alongwith Ms. Mridula Koshy, Ms. Upali and a few teachers and volunteers from Sanjay Colony conducted an awareness generation drive in and around Sanjay Colony. The students too took the initiative and reached out to the community in different groups.
