Our school now has about 50 adolescent girls and are in need of sanitary napkins. They have attended in-house workshops on Menstrual Health and their awareness about personal hygiene has increased. Please consider donating a few pads so they don't feel the need to skip school due to lack of sanitary products.

Diksha children are typically:

- From Migrant labour families living in jhuggis (make-shift homes)

- Belong to economically weaker sections living in Chauma village, Dharam colony, Caterpuri and New Palam Vihar

- Found loitering in the streets begging for alms

- Drop outs from up to three previous schools

- Refugees from Bangladesh.

C.B.S.E based academic education is provided by salaried teachers who receive on-going professional development and are mentored by experienced volunteers. Children are encouraged to learn a variety of extra-curricular activities such as folk art, dance, drama, music and yoga and participate in inter-house and inter-NGO sports meets. Diksha supplies a nutritious mid-day meal (prepared on the premises daily) and a snack to each child in addition to uniforms, shoes and books. Periodic dental and medical check up is given to all students by volunteering organizations and doctors. Parents are an integral part of Diksha and participate in regular parent-teacher meetings and workshops on hygiene, nutrition and non-violence. Parents are encouraged to lend their expertise to support the school.
