With the increased enrollment of young girls in high schools, ANK has had the opportunity to further assist the campaign for equal education by providing scholarships to approximately 950 girls.
Each year, over a 100 girls receive scholarships from ANK to continue their education in high school or college. This is a big jump from nine girls who had applied for scholarships in 2003 when the scholarship program was initiated.
There has also been an increasing interest in opting for courses other than the traditional Arts and Science ones. Some examples of the degrees and diplomas being pursued by our village girls are: Dentistry, Biotechnology, Computer Science, Electronic Engineering, IT, Pharmacy, Education, Agriculture, and Nursing.
Many of our scholarship recipients who have graduated, are currently working in good positions in banks and other companies.
