The Foundation's mission is to create opportunities for economically challenged women in India by providing quality education and supporting skill development to empower and improve the quality of life.

 
 
 
 
 
 
OUR PARTNERS
BEGUNAHI™ works with several charitable partners, also known as NGOs (non-governmental organizations) in India to find deserving candates.  The NGOs are vetted by BEGUNAHI™ to insure their mission is compatable with ours and that they operate above board, thus insuring that 100 percent of the donations raised by BEGUNAHI™ return maximum yield in support of the women in our program.  Our partnres include faith based institutions, women's organizatins, and NGOs committed to helping underprivileged women improve the quality of their lives.

2.  EVALUATING CANDIDATES
 
We believe that it is our social responsibility to help those in need,
particularly those at the bottom of the economic ladder. This requires
innovation and creativity for people to learn and share.

THE PROCESS
The first step to evaluating our candidate starts by speaking with her via Skype or phone.  This initial conversation is to help determine if the woman is committed to attending college and if she has the support of her family to further her education.  This step also gives the candidate the opprotunity to learn about the BEGUNAHI™ and ask questions. 

In the next step, and candidate is provided the BEGUNAHI™ College Scholarship application to complete.  The applicaiton requires the candiate to answer questions about her previous education, provide current academic and financial information, and provide copies of high-school grades , family photos, and an essay of how she would benerfit from a scholarship and how might she, her famly and  community benefit from her earning a college degree. 

Copies of the completed application are distributed among the nine members of the candidate evaluating committee for comments and feed back. 
 
CREATING OPPORTUNITIES FOR WOMEN IN INDIA
Founders and members of BegunahiTM Foundation are motivated by causes that improve the lives of women and girls. Over 100 million chlidren stop going to school beyond the middle standard in India.  Girls in India are often marginalized, taught that their sole role in life is to become a wife and a mother, and there is a belief that educating a girl alters the natural order of things. 

Through the foundation's education and job training programs, women are empowered to stand on their own and create a sustainable quality of life for themselves and their families.  BegunahiTM is committed to embarking on a journey that is exciting and rewarding.  We know we make a real differece in the lives of the women and girls we support.  More importantly, we also make a lasting impact on her famly and in her community.
