Sponsor college education for a meritorious girl

Impact

Every monthly donation helps educate more girls like Sandya

Sandya is a first-year B.Sc. student at Bangalore-based Jayadeva hospital. She travels all the way from Hoskote which is a two-hour ride away from her college. Her father is a factory worker, while her mother is a homemaker.

With a total family income of INR 10,000, Sandya struggled to pay her college fees of INR 22,000. It was only after she received a scholarship that covered all her fees, did Sandya continue pursuing her graduate studies and now plans to pursue her postgraduate studies in the same field.

What's even more heartwarming is the fact that she is the first from her family to opt for a graduate course.

Senior Citizens Bangalore
Senior Citizens Bangalore Logo
Senior Citizens Bangalore

Senior Citizens Bangalore was started by a group of retired defence personnel along with a bunch of corporate professionals to empower underprivileged children and mold them into leaders of tomorrow. Over a period of time, the mission of the organization inspired other like-minded retired individuals from the public and private sector.

They work towards making quality primary and high school education available to meritorious children who otherwise wouldn't have been able to continue with their education owing to their underprivileged backgrounds. They help such students and handicapped children in rural areas around Bangalore procure educational loans as well.

The team at Senior Citizens Bangalore believe every child has the potential to become nation-builders of tomorrow and opportunities need to be made available to them, free of all religion, caste, creed and community-based barriers.
