It sought the task of educating and creating social awareness for the less fortunate thereby improving opportunities for a better standard of living. Gunjan reaches out to children, especially the girl child to promote empowerment, self-respect, and self-reliance through education which gives our girls the confidence to break free of traditional roles, pursue their dreams and grow up to be equal citizens of this country.
Currently, Gunjan Foundation is providing scholarships to around 210 school students and 5-6 students for advanced courses. Our first batch passed out from 12th grade and has got admission to different colleges. We are proud to announce that one student has been admitted to the prestigious Ramjas College, Delhi University. Another student is now studying at Deen Dayal Singh College, an equally prestigious institute. We are indeed proud of the achievements of both of these students.
In addition, Gunjan has opened a new chapter in Jaipur with the sole intent of disbursing scholarships for college education.
Now Gunjan has also started a chapter in Ahmedabad to support needy children in their pursuit of school and college education.
The world is changing, and India is at the center of the world’s growth ambitions – we are rapidly digitizing, creating unicorns in bulk, aiming at high-tech manufacturing, and trying to reform our rural sector. Education and social upliftment will be instrumental in this national vision and this is Gunjan’s small contribution to creating an educated, informed, and capable citizen.
