Ranjith is a young chap who lost his mother in 2014. Unfortunately, he lost his father too in 2016 while doing his Plus-2 due to a heart attack. He has to take care of the daily needs of his younger brother who is in 10th standard and his sister who is in 6th standard.
Ranjith goes to school in daytime and in the evening, he goes to a Gents beauty parlor to make income for his family. He earns Rs 1000 per week now to feed his family. He Scored 73% in his Plus-2. Today, Team Everest sponsors Ranjith to do his UG degree. He has joined B. Com in a college in Chennai.
We at Team Everest would like to help much more Ranjith in this world who is need of help. Hence, we have a Scholarship called ‘I am the Change Scholarship’ where we are sponsoring the fees of 50 College students who are parentless and Single Parented.
We would like to increase our count from 50 students to 75 students. It costs us Rs 35,000 per student per year.
The student can claim this scholarship for any of their expenses which include College Fees, Exam Fees, Lab Fees, Book Fees, Hostel Fees, Mess Fees, Transport Cost and any other educational expenses.
Hence, our target is to raise INR 10,00,000 through this campaign.
We also conduct a free weekend training program for all our scholars to make them employable.
Students are not just beneficiaries. We at Team Everest believe that they are ‘Change agents’ too. Hence, every student who receives the scholarship will also commit to a certain number of volunteering hours each month to make a difference in the community they live in.
