 Kudos to the Very Differently Abled children of Deepalaya
Brijesh is a hearing impaired child and is the youngest son of Triloki Sah, a tea-stall-owner. At the age of 8 he was admitted to Deepalaya special unit. This required intense counseling session with his parents who otherwise believed that the child was a curse and would not be able to do anything in life. Continuous training and handholding by the teachers enabled Brijesh for inclusive education and was mainstreamed in class VII at Deepalaya School, Sanjay Colony. He had been average students in academics, but brilliant in other latent skills. Brijesh liked sports activities very much and made use of all the opportunities facilitated through Deepalaya. He had participated in many National level competitions organized by Special Olympics Bharat in different parts of the country. Brijesh was a winner in roller skating events for three consecutive years at the Delhi State Games organized by Special Olympics Bharat in 2006, 07 and 08. Four children from Deepalaya attended an all India training camp organized by the Special Olympics Bharat in the month of February 2008 at Shimla. Brijesh was selected from this camp to represent India in the World Winter Games 2009 to be held in USA. Brijesh won Silver Medal in the Snow Boarding competition. Even though they were disabled they made our country proud. It was a glorious moment for all of us. He is currently studying in the Deepalaya School. His ambition in life is to become a sports coach and to lead many children like him to success.
 Changed attitude towards education
Suraj came to Delhi from a small village in Bihar and lives with his parents at Panchsheel Vihar. His father works in a factory and draws a monthly salary of Rs.2900 (approx). His mother is a housewife. Education has never been a priority for the family. Suraj and his sisters have never been motivated to join a school Deepalaya staff met with his parents, convinced them of the importance of education and enrolled all the three children in Ramditti J.R. Narang School. While Suraj was admitted in Class UKG B, his two sisters, Shobha and Manisha have joined Class I and UKG respectively. An ongoing dialogue/interaction with the parents has ensured that the children do not drop out. At school, Suraj apart from learning the 3 R-s is also participating in music, art & craft. The parents are now inclined towards educating their children. Suraj and his sisters attend school regularly. Suraj responds well in class and does his home work and class work thoroughly. The parents who were reluctant to attend the PTA meetings are now regularly attending them. Now his parents are convinced of the important transformative role education can play in their lives.
 Kishori-An Idle Mind, Devils Workshop
Kishori was one of the most playful and naughty child living in a slum cluster of Okhla Phase-I. He and his group were known for their hooliganism, eve-teasing and for creating a general nuisence in the community. His parents were extremely worried about in the way he was going and seriously sought help to mend his ways. When Deepalaya started working in his slum cluster our workers provided him personal counselling and dedicated attention. They were able to work closely with Kishori and motivate him to change his behaviour. He and his group were enrolled into non formal education centre and also given a lot of opportunities to develop the potential within him. He was gradually enrolled into the nearby Govt. school from where he completed his schooling. He was also encouraged to pursue his graduation. Thanks to persistence and patience from our staff, Kishori is a changed person today. He is teaching at Deepalaya Golekuan centre where he not only educates but also teaches chilidren from the community about values for life. In addition he is a respected member of his society and is often called upon to take crucial decisions. He is also a member of Deepalaya Abhinaya Samuh - a theatre group, which regularly promotes social messages across different communties.
 The new dawn
Shankar, referred to Deepalaya by an NGO is from a poor family. His father became a drunkard after death of his mother. The boy had a traumatic experience at home. He was not educated. Shankar was given emotional support to cope with his grief. We channelized his energy by enrolling him at Deepalaya School, Gusbethi. He took to studies like a fish to water and has been consistently scoring good marks. We encouraged him to take part in extra curricular activities like singing, drawing, dancing, and theatre Shankar scored 86% in the Annual Examination in Class III. He tops the class in English. He is good at art and dance. Shankar has definitely become strong, mentally and physically. There has been marked improvement in his behavior also. He is an amicable and cooperative boy now. He is very careful about his personal hygiene. He aspires to be a teacher
 A home with hope
Deepalaya works with street and working children who are runaways and children of sex workers, HIV Positive parents, Alcoholics and drug addicts. As these children are from deprived backgrounds-on the emotional, physical, social fronts. When brought under our care they receive overall rehabilitation support to help overcome the deprivation in their life. Healthy nutritious meals are one component of this rehabilitation process. In addition the emotional, social, academic/vocational rehabilitation also takes place through facilities available in the campus as well as nearby town of Tauru. The children were given individual attention and advised about hygienic living and healthy food habits. They were provided balanced food thrice a day and a snack in the break time at school. The routine menu includes poha, sprouts, bread and eggs for breakfast and dal, rice, vegetables and raita for lunch and dinner. Special meal consists of all these with a sweet and a non vegetarian dish. As the transit home is 4-5 minutes from the school, the children come home for lunch. Now these children have become strong, mentally and physically. All of them have learnt personal hygiene and good eating habits. They are receiving schooling at the Deepalaya School at the campus. In addition to the academic training they are given opportunities to participate in extra-curricular activities. Their absenteeism rates have also significantly dropped.
