In 2007, Vidyadhaara took its first step when some residents of Ferns Paradise community came together to teach children of construction workers, under the gazebo of our layout’s park. But what really propelled us to get involved with more children were the following requests by a child we knew and a teacher from the Doddanekundi Government School:
“Aunty, can I come to your house every evening? I will sit there quietly, finish my homework and study for two hours. There’s too much noise in my house.“
“Madam, will you be able to help a student who has scored 85% in SSLC to study further? Her family is unwilling to support her due to financial constraints”
It was then that we, few friends who were inclined to support these needy children came together to make a difference to their lives . Thus, Vidyadhaara Foundation was born. As the name suggests, the focus is on academic support for underprivileged children.
In 2017, we got formally registered and now we are 80G certified.
