NGO Profile :
Anant Education Initiative (AEI) was established with the aim of empowering education by eliminating obstacles born out of poverty, thus creating new footprints of knowledge within society. AEI has tied up with Akshaya Patra to provide financial merit scholarships to deserving and meritorious students from Akshaya Patra schools so that they can pursue their higher studies and build a suitable career. AEI awarded 500 scholarships to these students across India in 2012.

AEI’s goal is to not only offer Rs6,000 per selected student every year through the scholarship programme, but to also offer vocational training, motivational workshops, soft skills training, and use every other tool for all round development of their scholars, to make them ready for the job market. AEI intends to give a minimum of 50% of the scholarships to girl students and also gives scholarships to physically challenged students. So far, they have provided scholarships to more than 5,000 meritorious students and aim to reach out to 100,000 students by the year 2020.
