We are an Educational and Charitable Trust based in Ahmedabad, the largest city in the Western State of Gujarat in India. We work within 28 slums across Ahmedabad. VIDYA is committed to changing minds and behavioural patterns that impede the development of communities by using theatre as a vehicle and peer-group role models as navigators of transformation in the difficult but essential journey towards progressive thinking and living. Started as a "Theatre for Development" project in January 2001 with funding from the UK National Lottery Charities Board and in collaboration with the Pan Centre for Intercultural Arts, a London based performance research unit. VIDYA was established as an Independent Trust in 2003 to promote GIRL CHILD DEVELOPMENT in the most deprived sectors of society - using theatre, workshops and audience interaction to challenge attitudes and introduce choices for girls and young women.
