Him Jyoti School, Dehradun
A residential school for economically disadvantaged girls of Uttarakhand, Him Jyoti was founded in 2005 by Sudarshan Agarwal, then Governor of Uttarakhand. As its Mentor, his vision and ideals continue to guide the school. The Him Jyoti Vocational Training Institute was inaugurated in 2015.
The Dayal Trust, associated with the Him Jyoti School since its inception, has undertaken to sponsor 24 students in each academic year, meeting their full residential and tuition costs all the way from Class V through to Class XII.
And, starting with the first successful school-leaving batch of 2012, the Trust offers financial support to its erstwhile Him Jyoti scholars to further their education at various institutions, subsidising their tuition and hostel fees at undergraduate or equivalent level.
