Impact

Help bright young minds make use of their potential!

Vittal is from a remote village near Dharwad. His family is poor and could not even afford many of their most basic needs.

Vittal is a bright student with a passion for learning. His environment did not stop him from studying hard. He wanted to achieve great things in life and graduated Class 12 with a distinction.

Unfortunately, Vittal’s family could not afford to pay for his further studies. When Vidya Poshak found out about him, they agreed to support his studies.The organization paid for his education as well as all his study material. This took a huge burden off him and his family. He was able to complete his graduate studies and clear the CPT and IPCC exams. Vittal now works at Wipro in Bangalore.

Your support could help young minds of our nation realize their potential. You can support intelligent youth like Vittal by donating toward their education. You can give with confidence because every program on our platform is GIVEASSURED.
