Education Loan Scholarships
The trust has, until now, focused on higher education keeping in mind that our middle class parents, while managing their daily needs, are unable to manage funds for higher professional education for their wards. Our achievements in this field are as follows:
Total number of beneficiaries: 51
Total donations received: Rs 24,20,544/-
Loan scholarships approved: Rs 22,55,865/-
Grant–in aid approved: Rs 3,82,169/-
Total loan amount refunded: Rs 8,81,000/-
It is our endeavor to harness the energy of the rising sun (our coming generations) and salute the setting sun that has given us light and energy (take care of our senior citizens). We have begun with education with particular emphasis on higher education because that is expensive and that is where a number of promising careers are abandoned for want of funds. The field is vast and open, we have miles to go and we are a determined lot. Our strength lies in our professional approach to our mission and total integrity while our weakness is human suffering. May, the Almighty gives us strength and guide us through in our mission! Amen!
