Gauri

Please help us reach out to more such young dreamers like Gauri.

Gauri Dilip Pagar has a family of two. She lives with her 80-year-old Ajoba (Grandfather) in a village called Awankhed in Maharashtra. While growing up, she never knew any other guardian. Her parents abandoned her when she was a child, and her grandfather took it upon himself to raise her. As a blacksmith, he put in a lot of effort to see that Gauri completes her schooling. Since college, Gauri started earning for both of them by teaching the children of her village in the evenings. Her grandfather can no longer work. She pays her college fees, gets some medicines for the old man, buys some groceries, and then saves some for the higher studies she aspires to do. A Bachelor of Commerce degree with Honours isn't enough for her

When we asked her about the challenges she might face in completing her higher studies, she replied – "Challenges are nothing new. Karna hai to Karna hai. (If I have to do it, I will do it). I will earn; I will study, and then I will earn more. I will be independent. I will take care of Ajoba. And I will be what I want to be.

We take pride in providing Gauri with a scholarship which will empower her to fulfil all her dreams. We bet she can.

They did it, with just a little help
