Empowerment through Education:
Dhoraji Youth Services Foundation’s core focus is on education. Education makes a person not only knowledgeable, civilized but prepares him/her for self-reliance whether it is community, societal or nation development. Education plays the vital role as does the for the body.
We at DYSF initiated the education program through awareness, counselling and academic excellence award ceremonies. In 2004, we started the scholarship program on the criteria of merit-cum-need basis. The program started with less than 10 students. Today there are about 1100 recipients. Another 300 students have completed their studies and pursuing their careers in local and multinational companies. Some of DYSF scholars are placed abroad. The 300 success stories are the manifestation and validation of the successful outcomes of the program. Those who have completed their studies are today supporting themselves, families and other students because education have made them self-reliant. They have become the realization of our vision that “ The recipient of today should become the donor of tomorrow”.
Such a huge scholarship program cannot be run and sustained without the blessings of Allah, consistent support of the donors through their generous financial contribution and moral backing.
We hope that with the culture of quality education already matured in the community, we shall In Shaa Allah be the community of choice as far as the education is concerned.
