Geeta’s story

After the death of her father, Geeta along with her mother and siblings, took up making envelops as a job. However, the money earned from this was not enough. It was then that she received The Loomba Foundation Scholarship. One of the first recipients of the scholarship, Geeta completed her schooling and went on to study textile design at university, which led to a meaningful and well-paying job.

Rajwinder’s story

At the age of 11, Rajwinder lost her father. With no formal education, Rajwinder’s mother Amarjit Kaur found it difficult to find a job that would cover the family’s needs. With no financial support from either side of the family, she took up menial jobs as she was determined to educate her children.

After four years, the family got to know about The Loomba Foundation’s education programme and Rajwinder received a five-year scholarship. This has brought a welcome change to the family. Now Rajwinder is growing into an ambitious young woman and wants to pursue a career in art. The Foundation will support her until she completes her education.
