Trust is actively participating in social service activities since 1990s. From 2008 it started a scheme (Vidya Vahini Project) through which scholarships are being given to talented students who are from economically backward section. In the first year, there were only 13 students who were awarded scholarships compared to 82 in the academic year 2018-19. From the first batch of 13 students, 3 students have completed Engineering and 2 students are pursuing Chartered Accountancy. 7 students have completed other degrees. After that, there was no attempt by the Trust to document these statistics although there are many success stories similar to the students from the first batch. The focus of the Trust was solely on expanding activities which would benefit the society. However, many well-wishers were of the opinion that these types of success stories should be documented as it will show the distance Trust has covered so far and also it will be inspiring for the new students. We have just started to document these stories. We will update this section as and when we get information about students who benefitted from Vidya Vahini Project.
During the usual Trust meeting today, there was a surprise visitor. Mallikarjuna, who was part of 1st batch of Vidya Vahini project in 2009, visited the office to inform that he has completed Engineering and he has got a job through campus placement!!! (In Cyient Engineering as Design Engineer). When we hear things like this, cannnot thank enough each one of you for the support extended to Trust.

For the FIRST TIME, a student supported by our Trust gets in to Medical course and will be a doctor soon:!!! Currently she is pursuing MBBS in Bangalore Medical College.
It's 10th exam results and another great performance by the students. Most important point to note is that When these kids were in 7th standard and took the entrance exam to become eligible for scholarship (from 8th standard), most of these students could not pass the entrance exam. Their performance in entrance exam was below par. Trust took a decision to take these kids to tuitions without any scholarship and invest the time and money on teaching at tuition classes. These students were given scholarships only after assessing their performance in 8th and 9th standard examinations. As we see today, from the level they were in, they have progressed immensely and now few of them passed the exam with distinction. The performance of the students are worth a grand salute. Congratulations once again to the students and to the teachers who guided them.
Once again great news. Very pleased to inform you all that students supported by Sneha Seva Trust have done better than expected. Thanks to all who are supporting the Trust in this endeavour. Will keep you all informed as they join BE/MBBS/BCom courses. If two girls join MBBS or BE as they are planning to, they would be first generation professional degree holders in their families/extended families!!!
Lavanya is one girl who likes to take up challenges head on. She is from lower middle class background. Her father drives an auto to earn and take care of the family. She also helps her mother with the household chores as her mother has to go for a day job at a garment factory. With all these limitations, in the recently concluded(May 2017) 2nd PUC exams, she has scored 93% overall with 100% marks in 3 core subjects (Business Studies, Accountancy and Statistics)!!! She wants become a chartered accountant in future. This talented girl is also an excellent dancer and has keen interest in public speaking and sports. After she becomes Chartered Accountant, her desire is to give back to society for all the help she has received from society while doing her studies. We earnestly wish all her dreams come true.
