Dakshana's mission is to focus on investing in the delivery of world-class education
opportunities for exceptionally gifted children from impoverished rural backgrounds
At Dakshana, the beneficiary of aid today is the donor of tomorrow. It is thus also
our mission to demonstrate this unique paradigm in the non-profit world by eventually
securing virtually all our future funding and growth needs with voluntary contributions
from our beneficiary base.
We presently focus on preparing students for IIT-JEE and other Engineering Entrance
examinations and exclusively target brilliant but economically and socially underprivileged
rural and semi-urban students. There is presently no alternative natural source
of funding available for these deserving students to pursue their dreams.
As these Dakshana Scholars break the shackles of poverty and join the affluent,
they would have a moral obligation (but no legal obligation) to give 10% of their
earnings back to the foundation to support a growing number of Dakshana Scholars
