Student Sponsorship Programme
In 2019 our partners at Laia Foundation identified 10 students that hoped to go onto further education. However, further education was out of reach for these students as they couldn't afford the fees and expenses.
Indian Futures started a campaign to find sponsors that could fulfill the dreams of the nine girls and one boy. We were thrilled to find sponsors for 5 students and we fund raised for the remaining 5.
In January 2020 we were privileged to meet the students to find out how their studies are going. It was humbling to witness the effects of the programme first hand. Thanks to our generous supporters we now have future nurses, lawyers and agricultural workers with potential for a better, independent future.
During the pandemic, when all schools and universities in India closed, we raised enough funds for 4 more students, bringing the programme to a total of 14!
In 2021, two of students graduated from their courses.
We're so proud of their achievement!
