DANRIA’s aim is to help poor Dalits for education by establishing computer centers, evening coaching centers and Sewing center for women to get rid of manual scavenging. DANRIA is collaborating with IIDEA to run these centers.
1- Establish three computer centers with evening coaching centers and one sewing center in UP, India in 2017.

Computer center in dalit hostel, at Meerut, UP:
This Hostel is run by Dr. Ambedkar Shoshit Samaj Shiksha Prashar Samiti, Meerut, UP., under supervision of Mr. Jaipal Singh, Retired, Joint Commissioner, of UP Cadre. Mr. Jaipal Singh is currently holding position as President of IIDEA, Central Committee, Delhi. This hostel have 17 functional room where about 30 students are living & getting free food, books, stationary and any tuition fee support. These students go for education in different schools depends upon their need and grade of education. Few students already got their bachelor degrees while living here. Recently five rooms were more added in this hostel in which Mr. Jaipal Singh is willing to establish a computer center as well as a library. To establish Computer Center and Library, this hostel need support about $2000 for computer center and $2000 library.
Why Computer Center is essential: The students who are living in this hostel came from very poor back ground. Most of them are from manual scavengers or manual labor’s families who were not able to go any school. Mr. Jaipal Singh talked with their parents and brought these students in the hostel. He always keep doing this practice to help por kids who are not going to school. This hostel is running from last about 10 years and growing slowly but we do have limitations to take students because of fixed accommodation. In the current education system, computer training is very essential to move forward and look whole world on the screen. If these students need to go for computer training that requires more money and time which is not affordable for the organizers and students. Computer Center in this hostel will provide more confident & develop strong educational background among these poor students.
