This is a project dear to everyone’s heart. In project Smiling Faces scholarships for education are given to deserving students who fall in the BPL category. Every year hundreds of students benefit from these scholarships which aid their education which otherwise they would have been deprived of due to the financial condition of their parents/guardians.
- Rotary Club of Nagpur Vision firmly believes that education is the best gift one can give to the mankind. Under “Project Smiling Faces”, we support underprivileged children, especially girls, who face financial constraints in continuing their education by giving them scholarships to take care of their school/college fees, cost of books and uniforms.
- This year, we are supporting 215 needy students by helping them with scholarships totalling Rs 6.40 lakhs.
- This is a hugely popular project with far reaching effect amongst various schools, colleges, teachers, beneficiary students and their parents. Each beneficiary student also takes a pledge to help needy children similarly when he/she becomes successful in life.
- Several beneficiary students from the earlier years have been very successful in their respective careers. One of the outstanding examples is Revati Naidu who was a beneficiary for the last several years and this year she cleared her Chartered Accountants Final Exams and stood 25th in all India rankings. In order to help her in getting through her interviews, our club loaned her an amount for travel and a new laptop. She has now landed a job in Mumbai with an annual package of Rs 7.85 lakhs.
