    This fundraiser will benefit

    Vijay Saini

    from Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan

This fundraiser is on behalf of Vijay Saini, a first-year student at Maharaja Agrasen College, who is seeking assistance with living costs while he pursues his education in Delhi. Vijay is the first person in his family to attend university. While he is a bright, hardworking, sincere young man, he does not easily have access to the resources needed to pursue his dreams and passions. Your support will make a big difference in helping him to accomplish his goals.

In his own words (translated from Hindi - you can view the original Hindi below), Vijay writes, "I am Vijay Saini, a resident of Sawai Madhopur in Rajasthan. I am currently a first-year honours BA student in political science at Delhi University Maharaja Agrasen College. Both of my parents are no more. I have a disability in my eye as well as in both of my hands. I am the first student from my area at Delhi University. I am also a badminton and athletics para player. I have won two silver medals in state championships. I have also qualified at a national level for badminton. Without my parents, I face a lot of economic challenges. I do not have the funds for food and living expenses in Delhi. I also do not have money for expenses associated with sports practice. I also do not have a laptop for online courses. For all of these things, I am seeking financial support. This way, I will be able to complete my education and also focus on my athletics. I would like to play for an Indian team and to prepare for the civil services."

Vijay is seeking 3.2 lakh for the next two years - his anticipated expenses include:
60,000 for rent per year
60,000 for food per year
5000 for books per year
10000 for sports practice per year
5000 for transport per year
This comes out to 1.4 lakh/year or 2.8 lakh for his two remaining years.
Additionally, he hopes to purchase a laptop to assist with his studies, so he is also seeking 40,000.

In sum, the total we hope to raise for Vijay is 3.2 lakh.

Please consider supporting Vijay - any contribution, big or small makes a huge difference. Thank you so much for your help.

- A little bit more about Vijay -

In 2018, Gramin Shiksha Kendra, the NGO school Vijay attended, wrote this about Vijay (you can view the original post at

"Vijay is an absolute combination of sincerity and humour. A graduate of one of the earliest batches from Gramin Shiksha Kendra’s Uday schools, he is now studying in twelfth grade in a nearby government school—but still comes back to Uday school on regular intervals to visit. The school is his second home.

Vijay takes care of everyone around him without any pain. You will always find him turning the pages of newspaper/books after school hours. Everyday Vijay takes out time to read irrespective of the never ending school syllabus and daily household chores. And whatever he reads he put his thoughts so clearly that will make your jaws drop.

A strong proponent for gender equity and always passionate to talk about gender identity issues, he explains - “Everyone should learn—especially girls,”. “This country will only grow once girls are educated on an equal level as boys.” From his behalf, there’s not even a slight sign of hesitation about talking anything that we generally tag as “taboo”.

He aspires to start his own business someday and create employment opportunities. “I received help,” he says, “so I want to help others.”
