I came to India with my boyfriend, who got transferred to his European employer's Pune office for 18 months. I wanted to donate my time to a local NGO improving the situation of the city's underprivileged children and was very happy to find Deep Griha Society. I soon found my place within this amazing organization, which makes such a difference to the people living in Pune's slum areas.

We are happy to announce that Deep Griha’s nutrition project has been independently nominated for an INDEX: Award 2013. Held every two years and patronised by HRH Crown Prince Federik of Denmark, this award recognises projects worldwide which have a significant life-improving impact. We hoped to make nutritious snacks more accessible to children living in the Tadiwala, Ramtekdi and Bibvewadi communities and Design Impact Fellow, Anisha Shankar kicked off this project by designing low-cost, nutritious (and delicious!) ladoos. Height and weight measurements were taken and the ladoos have been incorporated into our crèches food programme.
Our current DI Fellow Jaskeerat Bedi will be repeating these measurements at six months as well as supporting our women self-help groups as they take these recipes to the market. Success will see healthier children and new women entrepreneurs within the local community! Chosen by an international panel of designers, scholars and business people, Deep Griha will remain optimistic for the finalist announcement in June 2013 and look forward to the continuation of our work with Design Impact.

Akash Ovhal is 19 years old and he is studying for his Bachelor in Commerce at the Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar College in Pune.
 
Akash’s educational development has been enabled by the support he has received at DGS. Through the Aadhar Kendra Child Sponsorship Program Akash receives support from the First Community Church in Columbus, Ohio, USA, a program which he has been a part of since he was 5 years old. As a result he has had the books, notebooks, stationery and school uniforms he has needed to remain in education.

When I recently moved to Pune from Bangkok, where I was helping under privileged children, I was determined to continue doing the same in India as well...Why? The answer is simple....seeing a smile on their face gives me happiness & satisfaction.

I came to India to learn, and don't believe in the value of imposing a Western view of the world. When I read that volunteers at DGS are invited to ‘support staff, not replace them’ I knew that it was the right place for me.

From the 1st of January 2013 volunteers who stay at the Cultural Centre will need to pay 500 Rupees per person per day. This increase is due to the rise of the cost of living in India.

 

Unventured, an adventure company from Bangalore is supporting "The Laddoo Project" ( an Urban Nutrition initiative by Design Impact being run at the DGS creches). This is a unique collaboration, wherein 11 cyclists who are riding from Manali to Leh will raise money and awareness for the Laddoo Project, such that our little toddlers keep getting their yummy source of healthy laddoos.
