Scholarships and Success Stories
The Samatva Monitoring Committee (SMC) keeps in touch with students awarded scholarships about their progress. SMC helps students helps teach students to gain enough self-confidence to face social challenges and plan their future. Samatva believes that economical support alone is not sufficient for progress; an efficient monitoring system that keeps in touch with students through a one to one relationship between Samatva and children is paramount for their progress.
