HEMLATA 100

HEMLATA 100 Initiative

The HEMLATA 100 initiative aims to create real and sustainable impact by sponsoring 100 talented girls with full college scholarships. We seek to provide quality education to our HEMLATA Scholars in their chosen fields of study, in accredited colleges in India.

The HEMLATA 100 initiative is holistic in that the scholarship provides for tuition fees, boarding and lodging, food and health care, transport and books as well as pocket money. The initiative is unique in that it works with individual Mentors and Peers to inspire, motivate and support our HEMLATA scholars during their years in college.
Our goal is to offer our girls quality education so as to enable them, the first in their families, to break the cycle of inter-generational poverty and to ensure that they live a life of self-worth and dignity.

In 2018, 5 talented young girls were identified as beneficiaries of the HEMLATA 100 initiative. Every year, we plan to increase this number until we reach 100 and perhaps with grace, many more.
On completion of their college education, our scholars are also eligible for a HEMLATA certificate. This certificate takes into account their college grades plus the reports from Mentors and Peers over the years. The HEMLATA certificate, issued by HEMLATA Switzerland, will provide a further impetus to the job application process of our H100 Scholars.

As a social impact project, the HEMLATA 100 initiative upholds Goal #4 of the UN Sustainable Goals 2030.
