M3M Foundation recently launched ‘Saakshar’, an event to support students from marginalised sections of society by providing them with scholarships.
Under the initiative, 4,000 children in a year will be awarded scholarships, enabling them to continue education and build their careers. Launched via online platforms, the programme covers beneficiaries from primary to higher education levels. These children will also be given elementary digital literacy skills under this programme, said a press release.
Advocate Abha Singh, a social activist and former civil servant, was the Guest of Honour on the occasion.
Roop Bansal, Director, M3M, awarded scholarships to 45 students in the presence of various dignitaries.
Speaking on the occasion, Payal Kanodia, Trustee, M3M Foundation, said, “Education is a key enabler to holistic empowerment. This initiative aims to support students hailing from marginalised sections of the society by awarding them scholarships, to cover the expenses of their education.”
