Vidya Foundation Cochin

An educational charity to help poor students who are in need of support and motivation

About Us

Vidya Foundation, Cochin is a Registered Trust formed in June 2011 as a Public Charitable Trust mainly to provide educational assistance to poor children studying in Govt. Schools and Aided Schools of Kerala. Our aim is to help very poor students who are capable of excellent performance and lead them to complete their schooling with excellent marks/grades. They are selected when they are in class 8/10 and admitted to the benefits of the Foundation until they complete class 10. If they are able to maintain a consistent performance, they can easily get admission in good institutions after their class 12th. The Foundation will be able to guide them properly and help them for a better career building.

We mainly focus in giving them all the necessary study materials, guides, tutorials, and tuition classes in weak subjects. We  also conduct  motivational classes and specialised  classes  by experts .e started operations  in 2011 by selecting students from 14 schools. Till date ( 31.3.2016) we have enrolled 1680 students  to our rolls.In each school, we have a mentor. (Usually a teacher of the same school who has shown genuine interest in our activities) who takes care of the various needs of the students. They regularly interact with the students as well as the Trustees. The students’ progress is monitored regularly by the mentors to motivate them to be the best performers in the respective classes of the school. The Trustees and other interested persons visit the students and mentors in their schools, interact with them, and motivate them for a better career building.
