Learning by Locals

OUR STORY

The story started 13 years ago when Manzil (an NGO) helped Pradeep Kumar to fulfill his desire to learn English. The support from the NGO and the community enabled Mr. Kumar to pursue an education in the United States. On coming back to India, he knew his heart’s deepest desire was to help other young people to do the same. He first volunteered as a teacher for over 10 years at Manzil. Simultaneously, Pradeep also founded his travel company, Delhi by Locals. Working with various NGO’s for over a decade has only strengthened Pradeep’s desire to give back to the society. This led to using profits from Delhi by Locals to fund and start Learning by Locals (LBL) in 2017. Since then half the profit from Delhi by Locals is channeled towards establishing, increasing classes and building capacity at Learning by Locals.
With the support of friends from Manzil, Pradeep acquired a space in Sanjay Colony, an area close to his heart where he had taught students for quite some time, and knew that they held incredible potential for learning. It was no wonder that the students flocked to this new space to learn English, photography, music, computers, and theatre amongst many other things. Today, Learning by Locals runs classes 7 days a week and has more than 100 regular students. The team takes pride in its students and puts its heart and soul into making LBL a space where all students can dream about a better future for themselves with realistic hopes of achieving them With the support of friends from Manzil, Pradeep acquired a space in Sanjay Colony, an area close to his heart as he had taught students there for quite some time, and knew that they held incredible potential for learning.
