EDUCATIONAL FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE TO THE NEEDY : One of the primary Objectives of our Trust is to provide financial assistance to underprivileged students in need, enabling them to pursue and complete their studies. With a basic education, these students can gain the skills and knowledge necessary to become self-sufficient. We invite you to join us in this mission by contributing to our efforts in whatever way you can. Together, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of these deserving students.

This academic year (2022-2023) the number of needy students we will need to financially support will be close to 300 requiring funds of more than 25 lakhs.
Reviewing the majority of financial assistance requests and family details is an emotional experience that can move us to tears. It’s unfortunate that those in need must always struggle to make ends meet, and any form of assistance, no matter how small, can have a profound impact on their lives. Financial aid can act as a healing balm, helping to alleviate the burden of paying yearly fees. Our Trust is committed to providing such assistance to those in need. While we recognize that we cannot fulfill all their requirements, we are doing our best to offer support. At present, we can only cover a portion of their fees requirement, but we are working tirelessly to improve our efforts.
Over the past nine years, we have extended a helping hand to numerous students who may have otherwise been forced to drop out of school or college due to financial difficulties. By providing them with financial assistance, we have enabled them to continue their studies, and we have received positive feedback from both parents and students, indicating that our support has made a difference in their lives.
In the first year we financially supported 25 student’s education and this kept increasing year after year and in the 9th year the number will reach to around 300 students ( 2022-2023). The students supported are studying in the 1st standard to the final year Engineering. The parents of the students who are supported can be categorized into:
a) Around 30% don’t have father, or are orphans, or, the mothers are single parents. The mother in such cases is normally a rag picker or a housemaid or has a simple job. The mothers have a problem taking up jobs as there may be small children at homes.
b) 45% of the parents have menial jobs… The father lifts loads or works on contract basis on a low paying job.
d) 45% of the parents have menial jobs… The father lifts loads or works on contract basis on a low paying job.
c) Remaining 25% : Some are Watchmen, Postmen, Drivers or people having not so good jobs.
