Educate a poor rural child in need


Every monthly donation helps educate more kids like Barani

Isha Vidhya schools work with the education of children in the villages across Tamil Nadu. Baranitharan's father was a laborer who passed away due to a heart attack. His mother couldn't work as she had an infant to take care of.

With the shock of the sudden death of her husband, she became ill. Baranitharan was forced to discontinue school to look after his siblings. Isha foundation counseled his mother to send him to school promising help for his education. With good education and nutritious food, he has developed into a bright and happy child. Today Baranitharan is in 2nd grade and has hopes of a better life.

All a helpless child needs to secure his future is a little help from a generous donor.

Program Update

Need based scholarships and fee subsidies are provided to deserving students through this program. A comprehensive allocation process ensures only students truly in need receive scholarships/ fee subsidies. Even nominal fees are too much for some rural families. Recognizing this challenge, Isha Vidhya provides scholarships which cover students' tuition, notebooks and textbooks. Without the scholarship support; these children cannot access or afford the high-quality school education. Sponsors are matched with specific students and receive regular updates including photos, letters and progress reports.
