Education

As the core objective of the Trust is to extend financial assistance to poor and needy students in connection with their education, Prachesta has been very active in this area right from inception.

The Trust has identified academically bright students from various schools located in Maharashtra, Assam and West Bengal and have extended financial assistance to these students.

Based on applications/recommendations, the students are identified and selected by a Committee of three Trustee members, which evaluates the eligibility of the beneficiaries based on a pre-determined criteria agreed upon by the Trustees. The criteria inter alia includes the family income of the student (not more than Rupees Eight Thousand per month), academic performance (not less than 70% in the immediately preceding academic session), extra-curricular activities, etc.

The number of students to whom financial assistance have been provided by PRACHESTA during the last two academic years in different states are as under:
