Sponsor the scholarship of a poor student

Thank you!

This program is fully funded because of donors like you.


Every monthly donation helps more children like Komal's get scholarships

Komal works as a maid and earning about Rs.3000 per month. and is the sole breadwinner. Managing basic expenses like rent, food, and clothing of her two children Kiran and Sandhya, it became impossible to afford their education.

They were both academically brilliant but due to financial constraints, had to either discontinue their education or take a loan they would suffer to pay back. At this point, the Shiksha scholarship program came to their aid. Through the scholarship, the education fee of Rs.3500 for both her children each year is paid to their school.

This not only saved the education of Komal's kids but the money she saves by not having to repay a loan is going towards meeting the cost of their livelihood.

Program Description

The primary objective of the Shiksha program is "education for all" as education is a fundamental right of every child. With the mounting costs, this fundamental right becomes an elusive fruit for many children.

Shiksha program attempts to help the deserving students from economically weaker sections through scholarships. The preferred beneficiaries are meritorious students whose parents are daily wage laborers, housemaids, children of single parents etc.The program aims to help students from discontinuing their studies for the lack of money. Applications are sought and shortlisted after checking academic credentials and personal interview. Once the scholarship is approved, the amount of the scholarship is disbursed directly to the school.

Progress is tracked through the year after giving the scholarship through mid-term mark sheets. Shiksha has supported the education of close to 500 students and approximately 35% of the students consistently score A+ grades in all subjects.

Program Update

Through projecy Shiksha, we give out scholarship to deserving students from various schools from class 1-10. We identify these students from underprivileged section of society whose parents struggle to make both ends meet. The parents are usually auto drivers, hawkers, house maids etc and fall in the low income category.

The kids come once a year to present their mark-sheet and collect their scholarship amount. A DD made in the name of the school and presented to the students which they can inturn submit at the school. This ensures that the monies reaches the school as part of their school fees. The kids and parents are counselled by a set of volunteers who encourage the students to perform better academically. We have seen that around 30% of the kids score A grade in their exams despite their bad living conditions.
