Who we are
Deepak Foundation was established in 1982, as a CSR initiative of Deepak Nitrite Limited, with a vision of providing healthcare facilities to the families of workers and local communities residing in the industrial area of Nandesari. Over the years Deepak Foundation has expanded its operations to cover not only healthcare facilities but also embarked on various projects to empower women, provide supplementary education and build capacities of varied underprivileged remote communities in Maharashtra, New Delhi, Jharkhand and Telangana.
Our work and its impact
To improve educational outcomes and access to quality learning resources, the Deepak Foundation developed Project Vivek Vidya, a mobile library service that helps underserved children in rural, tribal, and urban areas discover the joy of reading through storybooks.
Direct access to high-quality storybooks in English and regional languages helps children improve their reading and other learning abilities which are crucial for academic success. The primary goal of the programme is to support their cognitive development to help them stay in school.
How we will utilise these books
The funds from the campaign will be used to get multilingual storybooks for Project Vivek Vidya’s mobile libraries. Children aged 6 to 15 will get to read age-appropriate storybooks in their mother tongue languages (Hindi and Marathi) and improve their reading skills in English as well. Biweekly readaloud sessions will be held for children to develop their storytelling skills. Vidya Sathis, or trained local volunteers will also use the books in their spoken English, basic maths and narrative skills classes.
