Bangalore: Bazm Niswan Charitable Trust, a charitable organization, gave scholarships of Rs. 1.32 crore to 3613 underprivileged and eligible girl students through cheques. The women’s group, founded in 1971, has granted scholarships to over 63,000 female students to pursue their studies. After completing their studies, these pupils are now successful teachers, professors, doctors, lawyers, government officials, business women, engineers, and journalists in government and non-government departments.
On February 10, a special event was conducted here to present scholarships. Bazm President Mrs. Husna Sharief told the kids that due to Covid pandemic criteria, only ten pupils were invited to the program. The remaining students will get their scholarship funds via an online deposit into their bank accounts. She advised the pupils to follow the four-point programme in order to live a good life. The Prophet (peace be upon him) instructed us always, to tell the truth, never compromise our integrity, always treat others with respect, seek permissible subsistence, and be content with lawful sustenance.
