Welcome to Digjyoti! Thank you for visiting our website.
The orphaned and destitute comprise one of the most vulnerable sections of society. Even if they are cared for as children, they will generally miss the opportunity of receiving an education due to various reasons including lack of resources and appropriate and timely guidance. Hence, a large number of them are drop-outs of school or fail to benefit from college and university education.
The Digjyoti Educational Trust is being instituted with the objectives set forth in the Trust section. It has been registered as a charitable and non-profit making institution under the provision of the Indian Trust Act.
We award scholarships in three categories – Digjyoti Scholarships, Nemichand Jain Scholarships and Dr. S.S. Prabhu Scholarships.
