Over view :Dakshina Kannada District has been growing exponentially in all fields – be it in Education, Banking, Industries or infrastructure. In the bargain, some people who are unable to compete with the world, are likely to be left out. But just like in the most of the cases, there is a saviour for all – JST a non political, not- for profit and secular social work organisation founded in 1988, has been a response to the needs of the people and achieved tremendous success over the years.
