Ramditti J.R Narang Deepalaya School
Amidst South Delhi’s posh bungalows and crowded malls there lies a cluster of slums mostly ignored by the general population. This aptly named Kabaadi basti (Garbage village) is populated almost solely by rag-pickers. In such a setting, it’s not hard to imagine the kind of lifestyle that these slum dwellers might have and the kind of education, if any, they’d be able to offer their children.
Ramditti J.R. Narang Deepalaya School is a joint venture of Deepalaya NGO and the Ramditti J.R. Narang Trust. The school was established in 1995 in Panchsheel Enclave, an area adjacent to the Kabaadi basti, with five girl children as students. Today the school provides education to more than four hundred students, almost all of them the children of nearby slum dwellers and refugees.
In 2010, Ramditti School became the first Deepalaya School to adopt E-learning. Projectors and boards were installed in each class room and teachers were given special training to make full use of these teaching aids. Today, the students of Ramditti have access to reference material from the internet to further complement their coursework.
