THE OPPORTUNITIES PROGRAMME
This programme helps gifted and econmically disadvantaged students with a full time scholarship in a residential school of their choice or an assisted place on a vocational training course. Some students have gone on to get higher education and even gain a masters degree like Upendra pictured here.
The Trust runs several schools in areas where good education is not available to the poor educating hundreds of children every day. Keeping girls in school especially in the higher classes is a prority and the standard of education is high with independent marking of examinations.
The wonderful work of one school was the subject of an NDTV documentary which you can see on the donate page of this site
The Trust runs a government approved vocational training course in basic computer skills. This enables students from very difficult economic backgrounds to gain the skills they need for the modern day workplace.
Over 95% of the students who complete the course find good jobs within six months after graduation. The certificates are recognised all over India.
