The principal objective of the Rajeshwar Susheela Dayal Charitable Trust (RSDCT or Dayal Trust) is to benefit the economically disadvantaged, especially in the fields of medical health and education. The Trust also recognizes the urgent need to address gender inequality and environmental degradation, and is happy to enter into partnerships for innovative programmes aimed at community development.

To achieve its objectives, the Dayal Trust, directly or indirectly, lends support to institutions with the necessary experience and management structure as well as a proven reputation for integrity and excellence.

Since 2000, the Trust’s particular focus has been the people of Kumaun, on improving their quality of life and opening doors of opportunity. However, over the years, when a cause was worthy, the Trust has also lent its support to programmes outside Kumaun.
