    The students were recommended by their respective college Principals. Many also found us through the net. The sponsored students also recommended their friends, acquaintances. All these students have a great academic record but belong to families that are struggling to meet their daily needs. They are enrolled in courses like, BA, B.Com, MA, M.Com, B.Sc in Computer Science/Microbiology, M.Sc in Physics/Computer Science/Organic Chemistry/Analytical Chemistry/Bio-Chemistry/Applied Geology and LLM. Quite a few who have successfully completed their education are now employed.

    All this would not have been possible but for contributions from friends, family and well-wishers. The timely financial assistance allowed students to pursue their studies in lieu of dropping out of college.
