Meet Ajeet


Meet Ajeet


 

Ajeet is one of our First Scholars

___

 

In 2011, we met Ajeet in a slum on the outskirts of Delhi. He stunned us with his brilliance, enthusiasm, and curiosity. The fact that he would never attend a day of formal school was our first realization of the poverty not just of resources, but of opportunity for Ajeet and hundreds of thousands of children in the same situation.

In the quest to find a school worthy of Ajeet's talents, we were blessed to meet the compassionate school principal at one of the leading schools in his city. This partnership led to Ajeet's enrollment and the eventual foundation of Squalor to Scholar.

Over the past seven years, Ajeet has become one of the most accomplished students at his prestigious school, winning awards in regional and state athletic competitions as well as rising to become the top ranked student in his grade level. 

Some of Ajeet's classmates arrive at school every morning in luxury sedans with personal chauffers. Ajeet walks to school every morning from his family's tiny single-room in a nearby slum.

Our Mission


Our Mission


 
 

To Educate & Inspire Children To Become Leaders Who Empower the World

We work here


We work here


 
 

Where we work, disease, extreme poverty, and the caste system still hinder the hopes and dreams of many. As you might imagine, education is not a priority here. Most will never attend even a single day of school.

To maximize our impact, we work with thousands of children. We teach them. We visit their homes. We meet their families.

Then, we work through a long and individualized process with our local partners to select the children who will receive scholarships and assistance all the way through college, trade school, professional degrees, or anything else our scholars desire to achieve or become.

What we do 

___

 

We work alongside compassionate local leaders, school administrators, social workers, physicians, and volunteers to create and maximize access to high-quality education opportunities at some of the finest schools in their regions.

Then, we provide resources and infrastructure for children who would otherwise unlikely ever attend a day of school to enroll in these top educational programs. 

Our goal is to help each scholar pursue her biggest dreams and become a lifelong agent of change in her family, community, and country.
