Rightly, the Moderators have not endorsed the idea and the plans have disappeared as they appeared.
Here is an idea for those who want "collective participation" and see the fruits of their efforts.
There are many brilliant school going children not only in rural areas but even in cities abandon their studies abruptly simply because of financial reasons.
How about setting up a sort of a Trust Fund to finance a couple of such children’s higher education pursue?
The Forum has more than 5400 registered members and if each member can contribute minimum of Rs 2000/= for this worthy cause, then settling up of such a fund would not be that difficult.
The scholarships should be awarded on “Need & continuous Achievement” bases only.
Set clear achievement targets and if any fails to meet the set targets then he or she will automatically loses his or her scholarship.
I strongly believe that educate mothers are the future of any country and therefore Girls should be given priority when awarding scholarships.
The task of How to set up & operate such a fund, I as a simpleton with no such expertise will leave for those who have expertise in banking, finance and other relevant fields to come up with.
However, I wish to donate Rs 25,000/= as my contribution if such a fund can be set up & operate by this forum members.
Over to you with expertise in such matters.
