We are an NGO with a heart for children in migrant communities
We believe every child deserves to experience the joy of learning.

For the last four years, Diya Ghar has been changing the lives of the migrant community in Bangalore by providing pre-school education for children of laborers in a nurturing environment. Along with this foundational Montessori education, our children are given two wholesome meals a day and safe transport from their settlements to school and back. So far, over 400 little ones have “graduated” from Diya Ghar and joined elementary schools in Bangalore or back in their villages.

Our Vision

For all children, irrespective of their economic status, to have access to stimulating and nurturing pre-school education

Our Mission

To set up pre-schools and daycare centres for children of migrant workers in the city of Bangalore and expand to other cities in India

Each Day...

The Diya Ghar team strives to make sure children from migrant communities experience nurture, they have never had before.

The Problem

400,000 Children under the age of 6, live in slums and labour camps

As we drive down almost any road in Bangalore, you will see a construction site. And right there, in the middle of the sand, gravel and machines you are likely to see small children playing. The population of migrant workers in Bangalore is growing daily. The families live in ‘blue tents’ with no access to running water, electricity or sanitation.

Why Early Childhood Education is IMPORTANT

1

Birth to Six years

Extremely crucial to child’s
development

2

Early care

Without nurture, nutrition and stimulation, the child’s development is retarded

3

Early education

Pre-school is a pivotal role in a
strong foundation

MONTESSORI IS BACKED BY REAL RESEARCH

New Neural connections are formed in a young brain every SECOND
INTERTWINED

Research shows that motor development and cognitive development are fundamentally intertwined. Freedom of expression and movement in school affects development directly

PURPOSEFUL MOVEMENT

We encourage children to engage in movement through out the day. The child decides the material to learn, and works with freedom to pick up or put back the material. The child learns to use her work area with respect for other children’s space.
