Well known environmental missionary, Mrs Tripat Parmar took the initiative and set up DEEKSHA as an NGO which has been registered as a trust under the Indian Trust Act II of 1882. DEEKSHA, with the sincere hard work and dedication of all associated with it, has over the years charted its own path and given shape and direction to environmental conservation and protection activities in a number of regions of the country. Recently, DEEKSHA has been accredited with ISO 9001:2015 certification.
As our name "Diffuse Environmental Education Keep Society Humbly Aware" signifies, we constantly work for creation of Environmental Awareness in the society. We are involved in various activities towards conservation of the environment, plantation activities, development of herbal gardens, water harvesting, solid waste management etc. Besides awareness generation activities, we execute a wide variety of value based projects aimed at environmental conservation as also those which impact sustainable living.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
At DEEKSHA, the "marg-darshaks" are people from all ages and sections of the society. With the feeling of belongingness and cooperation, we have played a vital role in educating the younger generation for preserving and conserving the environment and its related facets.
We at DEEKSHA have always felt that the educationists and students are the best medium to spread environmental awareness in the society as they act as catalysts to change the mindset about various facets of Environmental Conservation. It is our belief that students are 100% future of the nation and the educators are effective catalysts in shaping the minds of students during their formative years and help make them realize the importance of having a clean and green environment around them.
Besides focussing our efforts towards students, we conduct workshops for women, educationists and senior citizens from time to time to build their interest in this noble cause. DEEKSHA aims to change the mindsets of the people who think that we are not the only one responsible for the ugly face of environment today as we certainly believe that we may not be the only one, but we certainly can become the first one to save it.
