Scholastic Awards Program

Recognise academic excellence of young adults from Children’s Homes through financial support and guidance.


Children who grow up in Childrens’ Homes transition out once they turn 18. This phase (Aftercare) is a crucial transitionary period for such young adults, as they step out of institutional care and integrate into larger society.

Often, due to lack of adequate financial support and limited exposure, they are unable to pursue higher education and instead, take up small odd jobs for sustenance. This, along with the lack of a strong social support system, makes them vulnerable to various forms of exploitation. All these factors combined mean that they are, most often, one life-crisis away from being pushed back into poverty.

Program Description

The Scholastic Awards Program provides a cash award to recognise academic excellence of 10th & 12th students as they graduate out of Childrens’ Homes. This 1-year, unrestricted financial support is in recognition of their hard work and perseverance; and an encouragement to continue their higher education. The program also provides guidance and exposure through 3 workshops conducted through the year which covers topics such as financial literacy, resume creation, interview preparation and so on; organized in priority of skills required for a successful integration.
