This book encompasses aspects of the overall history, development, growth and processes of Deepalaya. The book tells the story of Deepalaya right from being a seedling to maturing into a tree, sheltering more than 50,000 children. Expanding from child to the family and reaching out to the community. Stretching from education to gender (girl child education) and restoration of rights (child labour, rehabilitation of street and working children, nurturing of the differently abled). Of course, not forgetting the hurdles faced and the lessons learnt!
