Who We Are and What We Do
Sourashtra Dhaan Organization was established in 2015 in Dallas, TX by a small team of individuals in Dallas as a way to give back to the community.
We execute projects with a clear expectation of the benefit to be offered to the needy. We do this by planning diligently, establishing a project structure, raising funds, keeping overhead costs to an absolute minimum, and delivering as committed. In other words, we spend a significant portion of our efforts in ensuring that your contributions make a positive difference in the long run!
Sourashtra Dhaan Organization has become one of the most trusted and effective charitable foundations, working hard to improve the lives.
Paving the Way to a Better Tomorrow
Our current focus is in the Education domain, and we support the following critical needs with the help of our compassionate donors.
We maximize our donor funds by choosing to invest in projects that provide long-term benefits such as a textbook library or computers for a lab. For scholarships, we look for the potential in the candidate to pay it forward in the form of coaching or maintaining websites for the college, etc.
We continuously receive applications for various needs, including requests from individual students for tuition assistance. The board conducts extensive reviews and collects supporting documents before approving the project.
