PrakashDeep is a non-governmental, non-for-profit organization set up with the objective of providing free and quality education to children from slums and other underprivileged backgrounds. We firmly believe that these often overlooked and marginalised children, who tend to fall out of the fold of regular education due to their impoverished backgrounds, are untapped resources of a country and have immeasurable potential. In order to make school less intimidating and more easily accessible to these children, we have set up five free learning centres under the trees in public parks close to slums in Faridabad, India. We have also established a sixth learning centre for students in grades 6th to 12th where they have access to computers, science lab and robotics etc.
PrakashDeep has seven trustees, six highly qualified advisers, 28 staff members and teachers and approximately 13 highly dedicated volunteers for teaching academics and imparting self defence skills. From time to time volunteers from different parts of the world have also joined us to share new skills and to promote cultural fusion. Members of the community living around Sectors 21-A, B, C, D and Sector 45 in Faridabad, India have generously supported our cause of free education for the poor and have individually come forward to help us fulfil the basic needs of our children.
Volunteers from the Engineering and Management departments of Faridabad's Manav Rachna University and YMCA, and Mumbai's Narsee Monjee Institute for Management Studies (NMIMS) have also helped and guided us over the years in a variety of projects.
Our objective is to not only provide free and high quality education, but also to engage our students in a variety of programs that will develop them into happy, fully functioning, productive members of society. We also offer free programs to help underprivileged adults in the surrounding area.
