As part of the ongoing Vidhya Nethram project a function was held on August 17th, 2008 where Beloved Amma presented a cheque of Rs 50,000 to the Suzhou University and other financial aid amounting to a total of Rs.75,00,000/-.
Three hundred students were selected out of the thousands who applied for financial aid to pursue their studies in medicine, engineering and various other academic fields. These 300 students were fortunate to receive financial assistance through the divine blessings of Sri Narayani Amma.
