Sponsoring a student through Kapadia Education Foundation is the most impactful donation you can make this year. 

At Kapadia Education Foundation, our mission is not only to provide scholarships, but to cultivate dignified and mutually enriching cross-cultural relationships for students, staff, and supporters alike. We intend that providing a scholarship to a student through Kapadia Education Foundation’s scholarship program will enrich your life as a positive experience. Whether you choose to mentor the scholarship recipient yourself or receive annual updates from the foundation, this scholarship program is for you as much as it is for our scholarship recipients.

 

All scholarship recipients are committed to “paying it forward” in their home communities and using their education to serve others and better their communities from the inside out. We sincerely believe, and research has shown us time and time again, that education is one of the most sustainable solutions to poverty. Our scholarship recipients have gone on to become medical professionals, environmentalists, educators, lawyers, and the likes to the benefits of thousands in their communities around the world. Your contribution will positively impact the students that we serve, and also their families and communities through their good work.

Note: A tax deduction certificate is issued to each donor.

“I must confess that I am no longer the timid girl that just surfaced to the campus of Health Tutors College but rather a fully groomed professional with adequate knowledge, change of attitude with improved clinical and pedagogical skills.

 

Without you, I would not have been able to make it this far academically. I will always forever be grateful for the change you have given me a chance to be part of and the impact I will be in my community."
