Marudyan Education Centre
The Marudyan Learning Centre in Old Gurgaon, Delhi was set up in 2011 to provide sponsored education and vocational training for below poverty line children and their families.
Supporting the local community
By supporting the running costs of the Marudyan Education Centre we get to make a practical and tangible difference to the local community in the Devilal Colony, Old Gurgaon, Delhi. Devilal is a migrant area where two thirds of the families are below poverty line.
Demand for education is growing
In only five weeks of opening the population of the school grew from 15 children to over 100. At present the Marudyan Learning Centre teaches 182 children mainly from rag-picking families, and demand is growing all the time.
