Rai Foundation is a philanthropic trust, addressing various socio-cultural concerns of India and its people. It aspires to create a milieu fit to live with dignity.
Rai Foundation is an innovative center of higher education in India and a key player in shaping the education ecosystem in the country. We are committed to affirmative action for equity and inclusiveness for all sections of society, especially for women from less privileged backgrounds. Our vision is to provide access to quality education to girls and youth worldwide at the "bottom of the pyramid." While much has been done for those with proven merit and means, little is done worldwide for the unfortunate that were denied access to good quality school education and thus denied entry into a good university for lack of merit. Many of these children, if given equal opportunity would have excelled.
Rai Foundation addresses the needs and aspirations of this segment of society which actually forms the majority of the young, in not just India but in most parts of the developing world. Rai Foundation, with its 5 partner universities in India, actively reaches out to such Underprivileged Girls, globally.
The Rai Foundation-DreamZ Scholarship offers totally free higher education at bachelors and masters level, through its five universities, to over 2000 Underprivileged Girls annually from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds from India and 22 countries in Asia, Africa and South America. This diversity creates a truly diverse and culturally sensible educational environment. We also offer a flexible methodology of education in order to empower their diverse talents. Our mission is to provide practical, skill-based & job-oriented education, with a focus on Life Skills—the skills to constantly learn from life and adapt to change.
