Set up a year ago with seven rooms and 50 children from the nearby slum of Noor Nagar, DPS (Ghaziabad) Disha is a school for underprivileged children.

"We teach these children about hygienic habits like brushing and bathing daily and wearing clean clothes," Principal DPS Ghaziabad Rita Kapur said.

As of now there are 100 children between the age group of 4 and 8 who can study till Class 3.

The school plans to extend the classes till the eighth standard. The school also pays special attention to kids with special needs like hearing and speech impairment and dyslexia.
