On the 24th of July 2016 during the function held at D Y Patil Medical College Auditorium we handed over financial assistance cheques to 121 needy students to help them to pursue their studies. Mr Yogendra Yadav from NASEOH was theChief Guest and Mr. Pritish Nair was the Guest of Honour.
The smile and the happiness on the faces of the 120 odd children and their parents said it all. These were the recipients of the 3rd Educational Financial Assistance from our Trust.
The following file contains complete details of all the assistance provided, the donors, students information, cheques issued, phone numbers and the status of the parents. Donors and others are welcome to call up the students to satisfy themselves about the genuineness of the use of donated funds.
The students supported ranged from KG to final year Engineering.
The parents of the students can be categorised into:
a) Around 25% don't have father and the mother is normally a rag picker or having a simple job.
b) In around 10% of the cases the father has left home or is a drunkard.
c) Around 40% of them are Rag Pickers or work in the dumping ground.
d) 15% of the parents have menial jobs... The father lifts loads or works on contract basis on a low paying job.
e) Remaining 10% : Some are Watchmen, Postmen, Drivers or people having not so good jobs.
The total amount of educational financial assistance provided this year till now is around 11 (eleven) lakhs.
Remember... It could have been possible that we, the privileged ones, were born in the places of the underprivileged ones. But we were lucky... So let us not forget this important factor…... It is fate that has separated the privileged from the underprivileged. Let us share at least a small part of our earnings towards the welfare of the underprivileged.

It would gladden hearts to know that :
There is a boy in the final year Engineering whom we support. The boy delivers milk daily to houses and even on the days of exams.
There is also a boy who works night shift to support his family.
There is another boy whose father has forsaken family. This boy used to lift loads in the market to support the family. This boy after diploma in engineering is working in Jindal Drilling.
The financial assistance provided for school students ranges from Rs. 4000/- for 1std. students to Rs.8000/- for 10th std. students.
For College students it is Rs. 10,000/- for XI & XII std., Rs.15,000/- for students doing their graduation, and the minimum of 60% of college fees or Rs.50,000/- for Engineering students.
