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. The project title is a quote from Albert Einstein . If there was ever a project which changed lives for the better it is this , as students are now working as software engineers and as language specialists not only supporting and educating their own families but truly breaking the cycle of poverty through this scheme.

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

Solution

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. These students come from abject poverty children of daily wage earners and subsistence farmers living in slums or mud dwellings but are fired up by a desire to improve their lives and their families with education that they can achieve but absolutely can not afford,

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. " Through the CAPS scheme I got my degree and I am now earning enough to support my own family and help my family also.. my own children will be able to receive a good education. I cannot thank you enough for transforming my life and my children hopes and dreams"
