The Delhi program of Vipla Foundation is rooted in the heart of the community. Since 2004 the program focus has been Education unlike its programs in other locations. Within education the intervention’s focus includes Balwadi /Preschool Education, Patang Remedial Education Program and lately since 2020 April Adult Literacy Program has been implemented to respond to the emerging need particularly from the women in the community.
These programs are primarily in South Delhi’s urban slum localities such as Sarai Kale Khan, Khizrabad, Gyspur, Mayur Vihar and Zakir Nagar Batla House areas. The communities predominantly comprise migrants from neighboring states of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Kolkata and North East States of India. Typically, the families live in a very low socio-economic condition, where access to education, childcare, healthcare and hygiene is severely challenged. Women and girls are discouraged to step out of the community and are vulnerable to neglect, exploitation and violence.
Vipla Foundation in Delhi has so far reached out to over 50608 children and women directly.
