Deepalaya, India

Deepalya is building a better future for India's generation of street children.

It is estimated that Delhi alone has over 100,000 street children. Deepalaya was founded in 1979 to help children for whom the street is their place of work and home. The sad reality for most of these children is a life of hard labour and work in environments that no child should be exposed to, such as prostitution and drug trafficking.

Deepalaya focus their work on more than 35 projects, including the following areas:

  • Education
  • Gender Equity 
  • Institutional Care
  • Vocational Training
  • Health


Deepalaya’s work also includes a Vocational Centre which provides technical training for boys and girls from the surrounding villages of Mewat. They learn skills in tailoring, computer hardware and software, electronics, air conditioning and refrigeration.
