Education Fund

Ekam Foundation Mumbai is committed to the well-being of every child irrespective of economic status, race, and religious background with the main verticals being health and education.

In response to the pressing need to uplift underprivileged children in their academic journeys, Ekam Foundation Mumbai introduced the Ekam Education Programme (EEP) in the fiscal year 2019-2020. This comprehensive initiative, encompassing the Ekam Education Fund and Scholarship (EEFS), aims to provide crucial support to children and young adults, ensuring they have the resources to complete their education and secure a brighter future. Recognizing the challenges exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, our NGO initiated this program with a keen awareness of the specific needs arising during these unprecedented times.

Need For the Program

  1. Private schools have become popular due to a large section of low-middle income families seeking a better education for their children. This section includes 12 crore people, of which 70% of urban students attend private schools.
  2. The majority of low-middle income families aspire to send their children to English medium schools and they are often first-generation learners. Post-pandemic, children from the aforementioned backgrounds are at higher risk of dropping out of school due to financial constraints.
  3. In the wake of the Covid-19 crisis, schools have been closed for months, impacting not just children’s education, but also their growth and social development. For these students who are first-time internet users, their families are nowhere financially equipped to buy laptops/tablets for each child in the family, and it has become a struggle to balance home-based online learning with limited access to both data and devices.

Our Goal

To help children stay in school & complete their education, and support more girls in education, especially in professional courses

For Whom

  • Under-privileged children at risk of dropping out of school
  • Students from Class VI - XII in low-end private aided and unaided schools
  • Students in higher education, including both junior college and professional degree courses, are considered for support, with a preference given to girls


  • Support school tuition fees (75% or 100%) for needy children from middle school onwards
  • Provide one-time scholarship for meritorious scholars studying in higher classes or pursuing professional courses
  • Provide additional support to students in the form of tablets/ laptops besides offering infrastructure support to their schools under our ICB program
