It all started in 1998 when the founders, Dr Sridhar G and Mrs Lalit S, chose to serve the cause of the society through education. They began by teaching 40 students in 1998! Till 2004, coaching was provided to students for various competitive examinations through School Based Programs in partner schools and own Open Centres for tutoring students in different areas. This was prompted by a keen desire to serve students at their own locations rather than asking them to travel great distances for quality education. The culture of caring, subsequently to be christened as dCARE (Deeksha for Children’s All Round Excellence), had got manifested!
dCARE (Deeksha for Children’s All Round Excellence) showed the way for the future as the Founders had a keen desire to address the difficulties of students who were having to study extended hours coupled with studying the same portions twice over. In 2004, ‘Deeksha Centre for Learning PU College (DCFL)’ was established to provide coaching for competitive exams along with the regular board exams in a seamless fashion. All this, in an environment that nurtured original thinking and created young, confident individuals with a sense of responsibility towards society. The feedback from the children was very positive. Besides the strong academic backbone, Deeksha was taking total ownership for the students and this was much appreciated by the parents.
It was time to take the learnings, the model and the successes to few more campuses. Joining hands with a network of partner institutions, by establishing a professional management setup, and by putting together robust systems and processes based on the experience gathered over the years, the growth journey began. Currently reaching out to over 10,000 students every year through over 30 campuses across Karnataka, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Telangana, Deeksha is a now a respected name in the PU segment.
Technology has always been the backbone for Deeksha and has found its way in the learning experience of the child back in 2007! Without doubt, dCARE was the reason – the fact that students responded to technology enabled learning better and that they enjoyed the experience, was reason enough to constantly upgrade the technology interventions. This heralded the AV (Audio/ Visual) enabled classes, the Tab, and the recent avatars – eDUCATOR and dPAL. The main objective behind developing these tech products is to enable students crack competitive and board exams with ease. dPAL helps PU2 students prepare for JEE Main, KCET, CBSE11, CBSE12, PU2 Science and PU2 Commerce. With features like question bank, videos, synopsis, mock tests etc., students can prepare for exams anywhere, anytime.
It comes as no surprise that Deeksha has created over 51,000 success stories in the 20 years since it started its foray in education!
