KHUSHII came into existence in 2002 at the behest of KapilDev, India’s cricketing hero. The not-for-profit organisation’s vision was simple: to work for the upliftment of poor and excluded communities in urban and rural areas to enable them to discover alternatives that would lead to their socio-economic independence, improved health and self-sustainability. Over the years, Khushii has spearheaded several projects that have touched and transformed the lives of thousands of people.
Today, all its resources are focused on its remedial education project called Shikshaantra. The project provides educational support, mid-day meals, medical attention, counselling, and value-based education to nearly 7,500 deprived children living in urban villages in SangamVihar and Devli in Delhi apart from vocational training to young girls and women of these communities.
