Jaipur Chapter

Future Project 2022



Aim – To provide scholarships to marginalized students for college/ advanced courses/ professional courses in Jaipur / Rajasthan headed by Ms. Preeti Mehta

Background of the Project

The project rationale originated from the need to provide Scholarships to students for higher education.

After having made major strides in the area of education for marginalized children we at Gunjan Foundation wanted to expand our horizons even more to be able to reach out to a larger number of students and to help alter their lives for the better. So, we decided that another way of reaching out to and helping more students would be by way of providing scholarships for professional courses to underprivileged students many of whom are unable to afford the fees and other charges of advanced and professional courses. Many children have dreams of careers in medicine or
engineering but are unable to afford the steep monetary requirements of these courses. To enable such needy students to realize their dreams we have decided to start a Chapter of Gunjan Foundation in Jaipur with the sole intent of disbursing scholarships.

Over the past five years we have already aided 4-5 students and helped them to complete their professional courses but now we want to do this on a larger scale. We have identified Rajasthan as the state where we would like to establish ourselves and would like to operate out of Jaipur as it is
close to Delhi and commuting to and fro to manage things is quite simple.

Program Findings

There is a need for scholarships for higher education that will arm students and help them in securing good jobs as they are unable to cope with the finances on their own. Their home environment and parents are unable to help much with financial assistance.

Project Management Section

The Foundation has started a new chapter of Gunjan in Jaipur for Rajasthan students and in future we will expand this all over India.

Project Design and Implementation

To provide scholarships for advanced education to the neediest students who have the desire to achieve but can’t afford the expenses. We want to fulfill the dreams of such children. We have been providing scholarships for advanced education for the past five years.

The following students are being sponsored by us for higher education:

  1. In 2021, we sponsored Monika Kumari Meghwal in Rajasthan College of Engineering for
    Women for B.Tech and now sponsoring Manijar Mandal in ICFAI University, Jharkhand.
  2. We are also sponsoring the education of Sonakshi Meena, a medical student.
  3. Jaipur Board has selected 8 girls from Shalini Udyan Care run by Ms. Rukmani Haldia for providing them scholarships for courses such as B.Pharma, B.Ed., and BCA. The scholarship shall be given to deserving candidates from government schools. Out of this, the Jaipur Chapter is sponsoring 2 girls completely and rest of them partially.
  4. Also, providing a scholarship to Chanchal for an IIT course. However as of now, her admission is on provisional basis, as she has to undergo a four month bridge course and once she qualifies for the same then she will be granted admission in IIT regular.

Equipped Library:

A library was set up through the P B Ranka Foundation in Devnarayan Girls Hostel. We provided curtains, chairs, led lights, books, tables, etc.

English & Computer Courses

During the summer break, English speaking classes and computer training classes for 40 students were organized, with a certification from Rajasthan Government. These were supported by Xavier Alumni Association. Out of these 2 courses, Gunjan was paying for the English classes only.
However, Ms. Preeti felt the need for 1 month of extra training for the English-speaking course where only 20 students could attend as rest of the students had to join their college. Apart from this, the Jaipur Chapter is also sponsoring 2 girls for Tally software course, so that they can develop new skills.

Counselling and Personality Development

We have provided counseling and personality development classes for Udyan Shalini students. These are being conducted by Ms. Harsha Rohit under the aegis of the Gunjan Foundation. The classes and counseling both are doing well and there is a great demand for them.
