Help a student complete high school


Every monthly donation can help educate more students like Shivani

Shivani Shinde belongs to a village in Sirsi taluk of Uttar Karnataka. Her father is a farmer and the annual family income is less than INR 36000. Though she scored an impressive 90% in her standard 10 board exams, she could not continue with her studies owing to her financial struggles.

Vidya Poshak helped Shivani cover her educational costs, through a scholarship. The organization also arranged for special tuition classes to help her prepare for the CET examination. She was also imparted skill training. With help from the donors at Vidya Poshak, Shivani successfully completed her studies until grade 12 and stood first in her school.

She now aspires to pursue a professional course.
