The Fortune Fund currently supports students in 4 village schools and one Junior college in India. Every year, 5 to 10 students from 7th standard (grade) are selected from each school based on their rank in the class and their family financial status. These students are given financial and emotional support until they graduate.
The Fortune fund assists the schools by providing books for their libraries, desks, science labs, or other necessary items for education.For the students, the fund provides a pair of shoes, their uniform and school supplies as well as paying their exam fees for each year. Recently the fund provided a water well for one of the schools since the school had no access to water.The Impact of the Fortune Fund
Financial assistance from the Fortune Fund enables the sponsored children’s parents, (farmers or laborers who cannot afford the luxury of an education) to let their children remain in school much longer than possible without financial support. Some of the students sponsored by the Fund are orphans whose lives are forever changed by the opportunity to obtain an education.501(c)(3) Tax-Exempt Non-Profit
