Description

Increasing higher education opportunities for girls is an important step towards realizing our country’s true potential. The Vedanta Post Graduate Girls College, Ringus is an effort to provide quality higher education opportunities to women and girls, especially those who are from a disadvantageous background. The college founded in 1995, is being supported by us since 2005. We also have a program to offer seats at the college to meritorious girls from economically marginalized families living in villages near our operational areas. This year 62 girls from different operational locations took admission at the college. The tuition fees and living expense for the girls are borne by us. This initiative is in line with the Prime Minister’s call of ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’.

Objective

To support meritorious girls from economically weak families to get a higher education degree
