vision & mission


A society based on legitimate rights, equity, justice, honesty, social sensitivity and a culture of service in which all are self-reliant.
Deepalaya’s focus and sole reason for existence is the child, especially the girl child, street child and disabled child. The family of the child is the medium through which the development takes place. Organisation and sensitisation of the community is the approach through which empowerment, capacity building and social transformation are attempted.


We at Deepalaya commit ourselves –

To identify and work along with the economically and socially deprived, the physically and mentally challenged – starting with children, so that they become educated, skilled and aware. Enable them to be self-reliant and enjoy a healthy, dignified and sustainable quality of life And to that end, act as a resource to and collaborate with other agencies – governmental or non-governmental, as well as suitably intervene in policy formulation.


What Our Supporters Say

In my opinion, Deepalaya is an immensely professional and compassionate organization that is doing invaluable work for children who may be less fortunate than many others around them. The organization utilizes donations expressly for the designated purpose/cause. My interaction with the child sponsorship department has been exceptionally wonderful at all times; the feedback, follow-up, and information provided have been meticulous, loving and passionate. I will recommend this organization to anyone who is interested in helping children in need.

Mr. Ajit Lamba Sponsor

I have been a perpetual child sponsor at Deepalaya since 1995. What attracted me was the unstinting efforts that the volunteers and staff of Deepalaya put in towards the upliftment of underprivileged children whose parents are usually laborers or daily wage workers. Deepalaya puts in tremendous efforts to help these children get an education and a brighter future so that they can live in society fearlessly overcoming social ostracism. I would encourage one and all to try and sponsor at least one child of Deepalaya; it essentially implies that you will be taking care of the nation’s development.

Mr. Charles Machado Sponsor

I got associated with Deepalaya in the year 2000 through the recommendation of a friend. Over the years, we found Deepalaya to be a very professional organization. It gives us immense pleasure to see our sponsored child completing her school and getting admitted to a college. The sponsorship department has been very helpful.

Mr. Alok Pande Sponsor

Since 2002, it has been a wonderful journey for us to be associated with Deepalaya and see the organization grow with the heart and dedication of the team. Sponsoring a child is something I would wholeheartedly encourage everyone to do. It is a rewarding and wholesome experience that brings richness to your life, just knowing the good things you are able to help these children achieve.

Mr. & Mrs. Roger Hobson Sponsors

My association with Deepalaya as a sponsor will be life-long. This belief stems from the fact that the school and teachers of Deepalaya work selflessly and tirelessly in giving opportunities to all those children who are deprived of quality education. I have no doubt that the students from Deepalaya will go on to become model citizens and role models for future generations of India. The 'Sponsor A Child' program of Deepalaya is a small investment in a child's education which will reap huge returns for India.

Mr. Darius Chinoy Sponsor

For 20+ years now, we have been associated with Deepalaya sponsoring the education of underprivileged children. Along with my husband, I have been sponsoring two children (one girl and one boy) enrolled in Deepalaya School Kalkaji from the beginner’s level. Both of them are now in class XI and we closely follow their progress. Deepalaya nurtures values like dedication and hard work which have produced stars among children from less privileged communities. I believe their efforts will be the guiding force of a well-lighted mindset and bright future for our country.
