From the President: The story behind DCF
My passion is helping young people especially children and their well being. I always have an unknown interest on other’s growth and success and feel responsible to give in returns to the society and to the world I live in. When I look back at my life it reminds me of the all the obstacles/hurdles I had to cross to reach the professional position in an MNC and also to envisage a foundation from a mere first generation graduate. This would have not been possible without a support for my education and especially to become proficient in English language skills. I believe that I have achieved considerably well in my life and now I realize that I need to make others feel that they too can turn their dreams into reality. This urge has not only driven me to be a volunteer but also helped me to envisage this as a mission with vision and inspired me to create this foundation which also results in soul satisfaction.
