Harsh & Payal Hada Foundation (HPF) is a charitable trust that provides financial support to meritorious students who lack the financial background to pursue their higher education dreams. One of the biggest anomalies faced by the Indian society is the challenge to provide proper education to students from the weaker sections of the society. Career building here, is limited to the spectacle of monetary endorsements that a family can afford; but what beyond that – Are the less fortunate destined to lose control over right to higher education?
According to a survey conducted by Ministry of Human Resources India, it came to attention that out of 20 million students only a marginalized 11% gets admission to government colleges of repute, 7% students crack scholarship programs and 19% has the required financial background to pursue study in expensive private institutions.
However, many talented and deserving students drop out of college owning to the fact that they cannot pull up funds to continue their academic career.
It is for these struggling students that Harsh & Payal Hada Foundation (HPF) has designed a resourceful solution – a scholarship program where deserving students are provided with financial aid to pursue their higher education dreams. The mission of the trust is simple - to empower youth by helping them to pursue their career path. The vision, however, is a much broader one - to instill a sense of responsibility to the beneficiaries of the fund, which will motivate them to contribute back to the society by helping other such deserving students, once they are well established in their career.
"When each of us do our part to give back to the society , it creates a cycle of goodness that helps all of us to progress further,"– believes Harsh Hada.
