Village to College Foundation
"Enabling Dreams of Education"
The foundation is the dream of Dr. Gabriel Fernandes, a dream he wishes to share with
everyone. Helping needy families from remote Indian villages better their lives after
completing their High school and/or Pre University College to continue further to complete
their College degree is his dream.
Goals and Specific Aims of the Foundation
- To provide full or partial scholarships to cover tuition cost to bright and promising
students from several rural remote villages in Barkur, India, whose parents for
centuries are mostly non-educated farming laborers and cannot afford to send their
children to obtain higher college education.
- To provide financial help to buy school/college books and/or uniforms to very needy
- To provide a small financial help to buy either food or medical aid to needy parents
whose children are attending colleges there by depriving them of immediate income
from their children to support the families.
- To provide in the near future scholarships to nearby needy village students to attend
the Brahmavar, Kalianpoor, and Kundapoor colleges.
