Story
Impact

PYDS believes in the adage that education does not come books alone. Sonali came to PYDS as a 9-year-old. Even though her family is very poor and lives in a remote village, she had a great deal of potential. She had little understanding of her cultural heritage, the wider world and had missed out on important lessons like teamwork. In PYDS, Sonali was introduced to sports and arts. Unsure at first, she soon learned to play badminton and basketball and is now a proud member of her team. She has also developed a great interest in Kathak and dances with grace. She is now a regular in all school events. Support this well-being program and gift the child you support the childhood she deserves.

About The Program

PYDS feels that cultural identity is important in giving a child a long-term sense of stability and place. PYDS works on this through many activities. Cultural activities include nature hikes, classical music shows, Kathak dance classes and Yoga. Children participate in off-campus activities which have included places like Indian Military Academy, Forest Research Institute, Institute of Himalayan Geology, Wildlife Bird Sanctuary, and Agricultural farms. An annual day is hosted to foster a sense of community and showcase the children's talents. They are given guidance to perform in front of an audience. Children are awarded for achievements to encourage them. Parents are invited to the monthly events so they can be proud of their child's development. This program is run with donations received which cover the salary of teachers for activities, musical instruments, and cost of off-campus activities. Your donation will cover the cost of holistic learning of a child.

About The NGO

Purkal Youth Development Society came into existence when Mr Swamy noticed gaping lacunae that existed in the rural community in terms of youth employability. The youth in that area lacked opportunities, motivation, and determination to move forth. Thus, PYDS came into being. Located in village Purkal, Dehradun, Uttarakhand, Purkal Youth Development Society (PYDS) provides quality education and holistic care through a CBSE affiliated school, from Grade I to XII to children (predominantly girls) with potential, from deeply needy and underprivileged families. This is done through a combination of high-quality academics, adequate nutrition, comprehensive health care, and full exposure to co-curricular areas, at no cost to the families. Their ultimate objective is to prepare the students for adequate employability. The parents/guardians of these students are mostly illiterate or semi-literate employed as marginal farmers, domestic helpers, farmers, drivers and watchmen. We give preference to children of needy, single mothers.For its work, the Society has been awarded numerous times. Some of these prestigious awards include Spirit of Humanity Annual Award, Life Time Achievement SABERA Award, International Social Impact Award, India NGO Awards. In its journey, the Society has impacted 839 beneficiaries, out of which 114 are adequately employed in varied fields and 161 are pursuing further education.
