DIA collaborated with Shakti and supported education for over 35 children in 2015. Shakti is a non-sectarian, non-political and non-discriminatory organization dedicated to empowering under-privileged girls so that they can lead a wholesome, dignified life with financial independence and actuate their inherent potential.

Since its inception in 1999, Shakti has been empowering under-privileged girls by giving them scholarships to complete their education up to 12th standard. These girls are the daughters of handicapped parents, war martyrs, divorcee and widows, who are not able to afford their education. In certain cases the financial aid is extended to help those who want to pursue higher education or a professional career. Further through its vocational training institutes called Shakti Udaan, Shakti has also been offering learning opportunities to girls from deprived families so as to make them self-reliant and independent.
