Founder’s Message

It is a school which serves the needs of our city and also its neighbouring districts. We seek your continued support and patronage. For me, it has been a lifelong dream to leave this behind as a legacy for future generations. I Invite you to share this dream with me      -Dr. Saryu N.Dixit

As the school nears the magic mark of 25 years of its existence, I reflect on the journey so far. I feel that the journey has just begun and I am reminded of the words of Robert Frost:

The Woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Professor Dixit is the founder of the Jyoti Children’s Development Foundation, Inc. and has primarily been responsible for its fundraising.

Raised from numerous donors, the foundation purchased the land, built the school building, and provided the school with special equipment required for children with special needs. In addition, the Foundation has been fortunate in getting support from Rotary Clubs in USA and Kanpur, India. The Rotary Foundation and The Volkart Foundation financed the purchase of buses which are now used to transport children from their homes to the school. Managed entirely by volunteers, the Foundation ensures that nearly 100% of funds collected are spent on School activities.

The Foundation seeks voluntary donations to help in adding and expanding its sphere of activities. The foundation is a ‘not for profit’ organization to which donations are tax deductible in accordance with the IRS law in the USA.
