About The Karta Initiative
Karta is a young NGO incubated by Tata Trusts. We are working with the rural & underprivileged youth. Our objective is to provide these young people best opportunities in higher education in the premiere universities and support them in becoming change-makers & leaders of tomorrow. We have strong partnerships with prestigious universities in India: Flame university, Ashoka University, KREA university and abroad like University of Oxford, Imperial College London, UCL, Edinburgh, Queens, Western, University of Toronto. Our students get 100% tuition fee scholarship in most of these universities. Our first batch of scholars graduated from universities like UCL, Edinburgh, Imperial College London and Bristol.
We support students for 5-7 years, right from class 11th to their admission into premiere universities and till they get into employment/entrepreneurship.
We are working with govt schools in 9 states (Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka, Kerala, Bihar, Jharkhand, UP, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh). We help students with:
- 21st century skills
- critical thinking
- problem solving
- bespoke career guidance
- university admission process
- 100% scholarship through our university partnerships
- One on one mentorship through diverse set of volunteers (experienced professionals from leading organizations across various sectors and industries)
- support them till they get into employment or entrepreneurship.
In this year, we have 100 students who will be pursuing higher education and would have a bright future not only for themselves but also for their communities and the nation at large. We need your support even after 100% tuition fee scholarship from the universities, for living expenses - hostel charges, food, books, stationery, travel.
Help them to achieve their dreams and join this revolution of change by education!!!
