Solution

A small contribution of approximately Rs 1500 (about $20 US) a month will help a child receive full education including uniforms, books, stationery, mid day meals. We will have about 400 children in April 2019.

Long-Term Impact

Impact for DIKSHA means changing the lives of children, their families and their environment. At the end of the school journey, we see confident children with sound moral conduct, respect for others and a greater understanding of right and wrong. They will possess the requisite academic and life skills to pursue college or vocational studies. Through fostering honesty, self-reliance and nonviolence, we hope to create responsible citizens who are conscious of their rights and duties.
