Scholarships and Charitable Give-Aways

Since its inception, the Sri Sathya Sai Easwaramma Women’s Welfare Trust has donated and also coordinated in giving away charitable contributions like useful household appliances such as water filters, sewing machines and solar lamps, newborn kits, hygiene kits, kerosene stoves and protein powder packets, among others.

In June 2013, a new project to encourage the spirit of education was initiated for school children. In 2016, 10,000 notebooks were distributed to children in the surrounding schools. Now other needs of the students, such as books, atlases, globes, compasses, school bags, solar lamps and science lab kits are being considered for distribution. This is an on-going project for the Easwaramma Trust and, as well, schools in other districts are being surveyed for their needs.

In keeping with its commitment to women’s welfare, and to encourage more and more girls to pursue higher education, the Sri Sathya Sai Easwaramma Women’s Welfare Trust provides University Scholarships to girls. Direct fee reimbursements are made available for qualifying girls from poor economic backgrounds. These are open to all, regardless of caste, creed or community, for any study they wish to pursue, including diploma courses, technical training, bachelor’s and master’s degrees, in fields such as engineering, arts, commerce, food science, and nursing. In July 2017, 30 scholarships were awarded by the Trust.
