Approximately 35% of students between the age group of 15-19 years drop out of school to supplement household income.
This would mean that 4 out of every 10 students dropout of school every year.
Unfortunately, students hailing from disadvantaged backgrounds in India have to let go of their dream of education only due to financial constraints. These students have to resort to menial jobs or daily labour to supplement household income.
Scholarships serve as an equalizer in a world where education is not freely available to everyone. With such aid, students are not only able to complete their education and live their dream but also carry forward the virtuous cycle of giving back.
GyanDaan is one such initiative which focuses on bridging the gap between disadvantaged students and kind donors who wish to help further the aspirations of these deserving students.
