In this ceremony a total of 92 scholarships will be distributed to bright Dalit students and organizations working among Scavenging communities in Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Orissa, Tamilnadu, and Karnataka.
Please grace the occasion if you are in the area, can spare a day away from home town. It is crucial as these students lack support and encouragement though they beat all odds to excel in education. Your presence will give them moral support to continue their education with more efforts.
We are also looking for book sponsorships. We need the following books, 100 copies each:
1. Dr Ambedkar's biography in Telugu, English, Hindi, Tamil, Kannada, Oriya
2. Kancah Ilaiah's epic book on dignity of labor: Turning the pot, tilling the land. It is also available in several languages. You sponsor some or all of them.
3. Any English improvement or self improvement books
Any help will be greatly appreciated. If you can't help us, please attend the function that is free and give moral boost to these bright students.
