Our Mission

The DD Puri Foundation aims to assist individuals and organizations that already have the will and capacity to assist themselves but need further support to succeed. The foundation works closely with those persons and groups to help them in achieving a self-defined success.

Guidelines Under Which We Operate

  • The Foundation supports those individuals and organizations
    that are willing and capable to support themselves and/or others.
  • The Foundation assists those that cannot garner support from
    other means.
  • Members of the Foundation will maintain as personal
    relationship as possible with those we work with.
  • The Foundation must see every project through to its full
    completion and success.
