Change the Future
Reshma's father left the family of six children when she was in 7th standard with their single mother to look after them.
Now she is the first child to go to college in their home.
Jaya's father passed away when she was in 12th standard and her relatives wanted Jaya to be married off.
Now Jaya is studying B.Com second year.
When Monisha's father passed away when she is just 9 years old, her mother started working as a home maid to take care of her two girl children.
Now Monisha is a graduate, has a job in a MNC and is taking care of her mother.
Resma could have discontinued education like her brothers and sisters, Jaya could have been a victim of Child marriage, Monisha may not have completed her degree. For all these children, education is the only thing which changed their future.
The percentage of single parented and parentless children dropping out after school is high. They do not join a college due to poverty.
Team Everest's 'I am the Change' Scholarship is a program to support parentless, single-parented students with big dreams who are academically strong and financially weak to do their UG degree. They currently sponsor 400 students for their college education.
Apart from the college fees, all scholars are also given employability training through out their Scholarship period to learn new skills. Students also get to do Internships with corporates & startups as part of this Scholarship. Job Interviews are arranged for the students in their final year of graduation so that they can get a good job and help their family come out of poverty.
I want to change the future of at least one parentless & single parented student this year and help them join college.
