Sneh-Vidya Sahayog (SVS) scholarship

In our experience, children are curious and naturally want to learn more about the world around them and attend school and higher education. Unfortunately, this is not often possible due to financial constraints and health issues. Seeking to address this, in 2020 with the support of Tom Leavitt, founder of the Canadian organisation, Harvest for Humanity, we launched our Sneh-Vidya Sahayog (SVS) scholarship to help young people complete their higher education. Since then more donors have come forward to help us support more students. 


How we help


The scheme welcomes students from low income backgrounds to apply after which we conduct verification of their living conditions, academic potential and financial needs and if they pass these checks they are then invited to do an aptitude test and interview. Successful candidates are required to sign a contract and their fees are paid direct to their educational institution. Our support goes beyond the financial, to ensure their academic achievement we support their full length of study and regularly check in with them to review their academic performance and are there to offer extra support should they be struggling.



Who we help


We support students from low income families from 11th standard to post-graduation. Our focus is in building the skills that will change the destinies of those who would be unable to study without our support. Therefore we focus on those pursuing subjects that reflect our own vision and mission, as well as STEM subjects and skill development courses such as ITI and fashion design. On average we award around 70 scholarships of up to Rs 50,000 per student per year until their studies are completed.



How you can help


You can support a student who otherwise many not be able to pursue their dreams. We require financial support to fund the scholarship but receiving the award also gives students a renewed confidence that someone believes in them enough to support them which helps to further motivate them to succeed.
