Summary

The trust has some academically gifted students who come through our village schools from very poor backgrounds who work hard , pass their exams and gain college admission.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

These young people are on the very edge of a new life. We need help in supporting them through college or university. Without exception all of them come from extremely poor backgrounds yet their progress represents hope and a chance of a better life or the whole family. Without support the trust cannot help them to fulfill their dreams. The programme gives priority to girls and young women. Some students are studying in Delhi and Bangalore, and locally subjects like computer science and language

How will this project solve this problem?

This project is called CAPS which stands for Children's Academic Personal Scholarships, and provides living allowances , tuition fees and general support to the very brightest of our students to help them change their lives forever.

Potential Long Term Impact

There is a saying, save one child and you save the worlds children. Please read a letter written by a CAPS student to give an Idea of how much this programme means. Only through education can change come.
