The Dakshana Foundation


Recommended Posts

My friend Mohnish Pabrai started his Dakshana Foundation three years ago, which supports and coaches economically disadvantaged gifted students who are writing the IIT Joint Entrance Exam.  The success rate has been very good and the economic multiplier effect that occurs when one of these students graduates from IIT is amazing! 


Corner Market Capital will be an annual donor to Dakshana, and I encourage anyone interested to visit their site:

No truer words have ever been written. This is a most effective way for a very generous man to give back. Best wishes and success to Mohnish's charitable program.  :)


Dakshana is a sanskrit word meaning to give or receive a gift. The Dakshana Foundation is a young philanthropic foundation focused on alleviating poverty. Education is the most powerful and enduring weapon to win the battle against poverty. Thus Dakshana is focused on providing world-class educational opportunities to economically and socially disadvantaged gifted children worldwide. Our initial focus is on providing 1-2 years of world-class IIT-JEE (Joint Entrance Exam) coaching to gifted, but impoverished students in rural India.
