The Dakshana Foundation has a very small, hard-working staff. We need volunteers to augment our efforts. There are many different ways one can volunteer at Dakshana. Some of our specific needs at this time are for volunteers who are:

  • IIT Alumni based close to Pune, Bangalore, Kota (Rajasthan), Bokaro (Jharkhand), Lucknow and Patiala. These alums can serve as mentors/role models/supplemental tutors for our incredibly bright and driven Dakshana Scholars at these various locations.
  • Hindi to English Translators. Many of our Dakshana Scholar Application essays are in Hindi and we need these translated periodically. These volunteers can be anywhere on the planet and need to have exceptional Hindi reading and English writing skills.
  • Expert Web Developers. We’d like to setup a lifetime email address system for all Dakshana Scholars like the one Harvard Business School has for its alumni. (http://www.alumni.hbs.edu/alumni_network/lefa_benefits/lefa.html). So, every Dakshana Scholar would get a lifetime email address when they become a scholar (e.g. Tanuj.Kumar07@dakshanascholar.org)

Volunteers can get involved as much or as little as they'd like.

Volunteering at Dakshana can be enormously satisfying. We are able to provide you with good support and an awesome opportunity to give back. If you have an interest in volunteering, please send an email to volunteer@dakshana.org. We look forward to hearing from you.
