Vidya Nethram lends a helping hand to students from local rural communities to further their education. Every year, 800 local students from low-income families are given tertiary-level education scholarships. On completing their studies and entering the workforce, graduates are encouraged to ‘pay it forward’ by pledging to support a student’s education. This is a beautiful tradition of gratitude and encourages other students to follow in their footsteps.
These scholarship programs are designed to provide the necessary foundation and other educational aids to encourage children to pursue education. Distribution of notebooks and stationery items to thousands of students is a major initiative conducted each year. This initiative also provides assistance to tribal children every year. Many schools in the tribal areas are adopted by Sri Sakthi Amma to enable them to receive a proper education. Additionally, high-level coaching to deserving students who aspire to pursue IAS, IPS, IRS as a career is also provided.
