Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Education, International, International Academic Exchange, Secondary & High Schools

Mission: Takshila Education is a place of hope for those thousands of children whose future will not be defined by their caste, creed, religion or economic status, but by their hard work and talent. We will acknowledge their talent and potential, and provide them a level playing field to fulfill their dreams and to contribute to the growth of the society and nation at large

Results: We started two year ago helping our local schools by participation in the STEM project. We are involved in the free tutoring and homework project with the help of my Verizon Wireless colleagues and other professionals from local organizations and retired school teachers. We are also creating animated video lectures for students on selected typical topics so that students can easily understand concepts.

Target demographics: high school student

Geographic areas served: Georgia and South Carolina

Programs: We support free online and in class room tutoring and home work for GA and SC. We choose these two states particularly because SC ranks first and GA 4th in the nation for highest high school dropout rate.
