Poverty not barrier for Education - Nurture Merit



Vidya Poshak aims to support 125 meritorious economically challenged students to continue their higher education by providing Educational support who otherwise end up severely limiting their educational and career horizons due to lack of financial resources, proper educational guidance, and skills required to succeed.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Only 13% of the eligible youth in the age group of 18-23 are entering into higher education. The major reason being economic challenges, more than 27.50% of Indian population is below poverty line, for whom higher education is only a dream in spite of many having a very high potential. This results in loss of precious human resource with excellent potential, who otherwise could have contributed for their families, society & nation building.
