Scholarship for High School and College Students

The West Bengal State Human Development Report shows that almost 84 % of the students drop their education and do not reach the tenth grade. In order to minimize this problem, that often arises out of poverty, a scholarship program for tribal students of High Schools and Colleges has begun with support from Gruppo India, of Italy. During his last visit to Raiganj, Brother Colombo S.J., and R. Puthumai, the Director of SWI made an understanding that Gruppo India would support the students for High School and College Education, including technical education as well. Following this, Gruppo India sent about Rupees One Hundred and Seven Thousand to SWI. And SWI has already put in its part with 60,000 rupees. More than 125 students have benefited from this program for this year. We acknowledge gladly the sacrifice of many people in Italy and Europe and the support of Gruppo India, and Brother Colombo. Your valuable money will continue to support more and more students. We hope to expand this network to more students. We welcome your contribution by way of donations and gifts to Social Welfare Institute and to Gruppo India for this purpose. You may avail of the list of students, their present grade and the amount allotted to them and the purpose, by clicking on the following : Scholarship List 2007
