Since its inception, the Ratna Nidhi Charitable Trust has been working in the field of education. Our education scholarship program was commenced understanding the need to support children and families of terror attacks in Mumbai. Through this project we strive to break the barriers towards acquisition of education for the deprived & underprivileged section.
RNCT Education Scholarship Program
In the past 15 years our city has witnessed the most daunting terror attacks, costing the lives of many innocents. Time and again we have shown our spirit of togetherness and have helped each other during numerous challenges. However, families of these terror victims were shattered with the sudden financial responsibilities. And in such situations it is undeniable that the children’s education takes a back step, further impacting their future.
Identifying the post terror impact on these little ones, Ratna Nidhi started Education Scholarship Program to support their education. The first set of scholarships was provided to the victims of Mumbai terror attack which took place on August 24, 2003. Till date this project has successfully covered 300 children, out of which, many of them have completed their education with flying colors.

Anjali is still waiting to complete her dream. Here is her life story.
At a tender age of seven, Anjali lost her father during the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks. A garage worker by profession was shot in his head at Chatrapati Shivaji Terminal Railway Station. Fortunately his mother survived the act but was critically injured. Anjali’s younger sister Nikita was just two year old during that period. Her mother Savitri’s world comes crashing down with the sudden loss along with the responsibility of two young daughters and ailing mother in law.
Savitiri with a limited family saving couldn’t see a way to support her daughters education. That was the time when she was provided scholarship for her two daughters through Ratna Nidhi’s Education Sponsorship Program. With the support of this program, Anjali has now reached to Class 9 and ranks second in her class while her sister Nikita is happily studying in Class 4.
Watching her two daughter study, Savitri was also motivated to continue her education. She has now completed her 10th from a night school and works with the India Railway to support her family.
It will be a long way to go for Savitri and her daughters, but we promise to be by their side till the very end.
Ratna Nidhi works to provide a fair chance to every child of this project, especially to the most deprived. Therefore, with proper monitoring of the progress of these children, we decide to further support 60 children out of the 300 children for a span of 2 years; who are still in the process of completing their education and require guidance.
Each child requires 10,000 (INR) to complete their academic year. Commit yourself to support these children! Your contribution will help change the future of the children. DONATE NOW!
