Our Mission

Established in 2010, Diksha’s vision is for every child and young person in India to have the opportunity for holistic education. Each learner would have access to good academic opportunities, a chance for social and emotional development, and become responsible and ethical global citizens.

The Need

Based on NAS-2017, the average learning level from Std 3 to 5 in Bihar is 56.32%, one of India's lowest. Bihar's HDI is 0.571, which is the lowest in the country, equal to that of the Republic of Congo. The lack of holistic education in the education system is the root cause of the pressing issue.

The Solution

Diksha's flagship program, Knowledge Hub for Education & Learning, aims to provide holistic education to all students. This after-school supplementary education program targets children and youth from low-income backgrounds and focuses on developing their academic and 21st-century skills.

Our Impact

Over the last 12 years, Diksha has reached out to over 6000 students through KHEL. They have enabled 150 children in Bihar to continue higher education and delay early childhood marriages. 75% of KHEL alumni are well-placed and actively contributing towards the development of society.

The Diksha Foundation has tried to incorporate education with the overall development of children for their holistic growth. This has enabled children at Diksha to pursue their dreams and careers. Over the years, they have helped children from marginalized communities to get a decent opportunity in order to explore themselves.

Diksha Foundation needs your support to access quality education, support, and opportunities they deserve.
