"The Foundation would like to introduce Alex House as its runner for the 2015 Virgin London Marathon. Alex is a keen sportsman with an eye for a time and will be doing all he can to get across the line in the top half of the field of 35,000 runners. He works and lives in London and is very excited to run on behalf of all the children and families involved with DIPIN"

Currently Dipin had relocated its work in Uttar Pradesh Faizabad District. Our Managing Trustee Zafar A Ali has chanced upon his ancestral properties, which had been lost for over sixty-five years. We are in the process of retrieving all these lands step by step and on the onset have laid our claim on five plots of land (approx. 2.50 acres) in one of the villages "Agihari". The records show there is a lot of claimable land lying in twelve villages. The legal process has been started village wise. We have started the following programs in the villages
This is the traditional art in this area. We have set up a training class for women in one of our villages "Rudauli". Around 15 girls have been given the cloth and thread to practice making the embroidery. One of the leading prompters of this art had come forward to assist us and help us in this endeavor. This work if successful will be a big help for the people in the village as it will give them dignified work as well as help the women to add to the family's income.




A lot of the lands that we are acquiring is pure virgin land, which has never been tilled or used for any inorganic purpose. We are currently in the process of getting these soil tested so that we could start an organic movement in this area for the farmers.




We also intend to start schools in the villages for the underprivileged children as we had done in Mewat. The people are poor here and providing them with good education facilities would help them immensely.
