“ If the poor boy cannot come to Education, Education must go to him”
This Quote by Swamy Vivekananda very aptly enforces our responsibility towards providing education for all. All of us are credited equal. But right after birth, we are divided based on caste, religion, status and money. This, in turn changes the whole dynamics. Some get privileged and are able to access a better lifestyle while others are left scrambling for even basic survival. We, as the privileged ones, ought to have a sense of responsibility for the betterment of those less fortunate. In the fight against poverty, education could prove to be our biggest asset. Education goes a long way in bringing changes in the society by creating a fair competitive environment. We enable education for a poor student and thus enable for him/her a sea of opportunities. Government and non-government organizations contributing by providing scholarships for poor students.
We, in our College do the contributing by providing financial assistance for poor students, those who need education. Hence Poor Students fund is formed in our college to help the students who are economically backward and do not avail any scholarship under any scheme, that provides financial assistance to the differently able of needy or deserving students to help to pursue their studies in the college.
