Children who have had to suffer the violence of poverty and prejudice from the day they were born to develop inner strength. Their demand for life, their need to survive, gives birth to a spirit of innovation second to none. That spirit, when recognised, cared for and mentored is a massive power source, a power that will promote the individual and change society. Only through education can this come about.
Vahani Scholarship is a non-profit organisation that recognisesthe importance of opening doors for the exceptionally brilliant underprivileged children in India. Our mission is to send Indian students who come from extenuating circumstances to the top universities across India. We take a two-pronged approach: full financial support combined with on-going personal mentorship.
By creating a close-knit community of scholars with exceptional talent, we hope to create leaders who will be the inspiration and agents of change in their local communities. We have no religious or political affiliations.
