Our Story

In 1997, a group of apparitional school friends decided together to bring about a change in the education sector of India, besides following their own careers. Thirteen years later, their dream found fulfillment in Diksha Foundation. Started off by these likeminded individuals, Diksha stands for the untiring zeal and the continued efforts of many who make sure that education is not a privilege, but within everyone’s reach.

Diksha Foundation was registered under Society Registration Act, 1860 on 14th July 2010. Since then our work is dedicated towards strengthening the rights of children in the collective consciousness of the society. With support from our mentors we dreamt of bringing creative solutions to the problems that children faced while learning. We traveled to model schools across the country; we read on education pedagogies, we had conversations on what ideal learning spaces should look like and what was most missing from the learning adventures of children from economically underprivileged communities. In December 2010 our first Knowledge Hub for Education and Learning Center was started in Patna, Bihar. We developed KHEL Patna as a learning space for children from economically disenfranchised communities of the Jagdeo Path area of the city.
