While teachers pile praise onto Sania for her attitude and her work, her performance in exams, tests, and year round JEE-advanced tests speaks for itself.

How you can help Sania

Sania comes from a low-income family, and they require help to fund her college education. The family’s only source of income is Sania’s father and he does not make enough money to sustain the expenses of the house and entirely fund his third daughter’s education. The family cannot provide a number in regards to how much they could collectively contribute, however, they do guarantee that they will all they can to fund Sania. Supporting this cause means supporting an underprivileged teenager’s desire to receive the highest quality education possible and make a positive impact on the world.
