Dr. Vinay Jain and Mrs. Kanika Jain

Dr. Vinay Jain and his wife, Mrs. Kanika Jain, created Jiv Daya Foundation in 2002 with the mission of improving the quality of life of people around the world. We carry out our mission through both our India based and Dallas based projects. Our India based projects include our primary healthcare projects in pediatric oncology, palliative care, maternal health, amputee assistance, child deworming, and Kala Azar treatment. Our local giving initiative, the Student E-Reader Program (StEP), bridges the gap between under-resourced schools and technology access to transform the education landscape for elementary students in Dallas ISD. 


We carry out our mission through building sustainable partnerships and strengthening existing infrastructure with medical institutions in India.
