I Am The Change Scholarship
‘I am the Change Scholarship’ is for parentless and Single parented students in Chennai, Tamilnadu, India who are academically strong and financially weak. A statistics says that in India today, only 10% of our children go on to complete graduation. We, Team Everest believe that education is the only sustainable solution to overcome poverty.
Story of a Scholar
Rosila was a 10th std dropout. She worked to earn money for her family, completed her 10th class through tutorial class. She joined a Govt school where she completed her Plus-2 with more than 75% marks. With no one to support for her education, Team Everest came for her rescue.
Check out her inspiring story as a video here.
Soft Skill Training
Apart from sponsoring their college fees, we also conduct the free weekend training program to improve their soft skills and their English Language skills through our ‘First Penguin Club’ program. Every year, each student undergoes 100 hours of training.
17 Different Graduation Courses
Students are not just beneficiaries. We at Team Everest believe that they are ‘Change agents’ too. Hence, every student who receive the scholarship will also commit to certain number of volunteering hours each month to make a difference in the community they live in.
