Parinaam conducts a wide range of programs that educate, enable and empower the unseen citizens of Bangalore. These unseen citizens amongst us who keep our streets clean and build our houses are crucial to the success of our city. They have moved here from villages across India, in hope that our city will welcome them and give their families specially their children a better future. If we miss an opportunity at educating these children today, these families have to wait for one whole generation, 25 years, for another opportunity to escape the vicious circle of poverty.
Parinaam facilitates that change through its Academic Adoption Program. The program helps children from these families to continue their education in English medium schools through academic scholarships funded by donors and become economically empowered citizens of Bangalore tomorrow. The program provides long-term mentoring and financial support to the children until they eventually finish school. The funds raised at the event will be used to expand our Academic Adoption Programme.
