I am Guna Thantry
Education of underprivileged is my passion and as part of Rotary Indiranagar, Bangalore, we have started this initiative of supporting higher education of students from
Below Poverty line background starting from 11th grade to Graduation or even post-graduation if a student wants to study further. Most of the students we are supporting our children of House Maids, Drivers, Coolies, Farm Labour etc., but have achieved 75% or above in their 10th-grade exams (Board Exams). Despite adverse circumstances, they have managed to score in the top 10 percentile of their schools.
By providing a total support of Rs 1,00,000/- spread over 5 years, we have been instrumental in educating many students over the last 18 years of our scholarship program. Last year we supported the education of 272 students and this year hope to cross 300 students. Funds generated are from donations received from our Rotary members & also the support of Philanthropic organizations like Menda Foundation who are helping us in a big way.
Demand for education support is ever increasing & we are making this appeal to our family, friends & like-minded people to help us to support more & more underprivileged children. Amount generated from this campaign will be added to existing scholarship corpus & interest generated from this will be used for education support.
Please support my campaign and let us together bring light into the lives of these youngsters.
