“Education is the foundation upon which we build our future”

The Ma Foi Foundation has touched and transformed the lives of many school students, college students and youth through its various programs and schemes under the name ‘DISHA’.

Disha is not just about academic or financial assistance but aims at the holistic development of the children at all levels, helping them realize their true potential.

Disha scholarship programs have transformed the lives of more than 4500 deserving students, most of whom have now got jobs in good organisations. This program offers scholarship and mentorship from class VIII onwards for the under privileged students studying in Corporation Schools. Disha, through skill building classes & career counselling programs has offered holistic growth giving them the necessary stability & confidence in life.
