- Academic & Computer Education
Skill Development with an eye on employment is the need of the hour and Diyaa is a widely known NGO working for Skill Development in India. There is a growing awareness that having an educational degree, does not always help in getting a job commensurate with one’s qualification. However, a minimum qualification of Class X combined with some vocational skill leads to employment opportunities. We strive to expand the earning capability of the marginalized sections of society, thus bringing them into the mainstream, by teaching vocational skills. Diya has set up its Academic and Computer training centres in Khatima (Uttarakhand), Bharat Nagar (New Delhi) and Deoband (UP). Diyaa has more than 1000 beneficiaries in last 10 years since its establishment in year 2009.
- Photography & Video Editing Training
We envision empowering underprivileged students /adults by providing sustainable livelihood leading to economic independence. At Diyaa, enabling self-reliance is the belief that permeates everything we do.

With this mind, we have set up several vocational training programmes in various places. These programmes provide marketable skills to the beneficiaries that can help them get competitive jobs. We provide certificate courses in Photography, Camera Handling & Lighting techniques, Video Editing etc. Diyaa has its own Camera and Studio setup in Bharat Nagar (New Delhi) to provide the best training experience to all our students.
