The Trust's Vision is "To transform the lives of people in India through education by providing financial assistance and recognition to them, across all age groups and income strata". With this vision the Trust continues to make a difference in the lives of thousands of disadvantaged students by offering them a variety of scholarships, livelihood training programmes and financial support.
