We work in the Vellore district of South India to advance education and health care by providing scholarships to nursing students. We collaborate with a registered Indian Charity to improve opportunities and educational outcomes for underprivileged women.  With our charitable partner The Sri Sakthi Amma Health Care Trust we augment existing nursing programs at The Sri Narayani College of Nursing.  The College of Nursing was established in 2006 and started Basic B.Sc (Nursing) on November 13th 2006 at Sri Narayani Hospital & Research Centre in Thirumalaikodi, Vellore, South India.  The College later moved on to a purpose built new premises at Sekanoor, Vellore District in 2010.

All of the nursing students in this assembly received Canadians Sharing scholarships to support attainment of their nursing degrees.

The College identifies students to us that are in financial need and we select the most financially challenged students.  Our scholarships support low income, often first-generation nursing support for their tuition which helps to pay for food and accommodation, facility expenses, books, study materials and uniforms.  The scholarships and applications are free of cost and anyone studying for nursing in the college or applying to the college can apply.
