Scholarships knitting dreams of young minds
Dreams need determination to reach their destination. This saying is true in all its essence. However the ground reality pushes the young minds to have something more than just determination to reach their goals. Financial assistance is critical to their path toward their dreams.
Mumbai Smiles through its Future Smiles and Girl Child Education projects attempts to aid this need. On 25th of November, 173 beneficiaries were given scholarships based on the amounts approved by the scrutiny committee. More than Rs. 12 lacks was distributed among the students from schools and colleges. The Girl Child Education beneficiaries were also given educational materials including bags, pens, note books etc for the academic year.
The event began with Mr. Narendra Kumar Dundu, Executive Director addressing the gathering. The parents and children were guided and motivated by his talk. The interaction was accompanied by our Spain colleague Sandra Garriga who shared her experience with the children. The children promised to utilize the funds they get in the most appropriate way and continue to work hard to achieve their dreams.
The scholarship distribution event ensures that education never takes a back seat for the budding minds and they can channelize all their concentration towards studying and innovating something new.
