About us

Foundation for Education and Development (FED) is a public charitable trust established by 5 renowned educationists in the year 2000. FED runs a project called Doosra Dashak (DD) for holistic and integrated education of adolescents. Since inception, this project has been able to successfully engage with “out of school” adolescents through significant contributions to making the lives of young people from rural areas more productive and meaningful.

Doosra Dashak has also been addressing the learning needs of the school going adolescents belonging to the most marginalized communities, in remote rural areas. It envisions holistic and value based education as a means of harnessing the latent potential of the youth for working proactively as harbingers of social change.

DD now continues to look at ways to further develop its work to address the ever changing needs of young people in rural areas who exist on the periphery of education.
