– Late Shri Dwarka Prasad Agarwal, Founder, Vedanta Foundation
“I want to see less privileged youth of India receiving equal educational opportunities. I want them to become vocationally skilled, so they can stand on their feet.”
“It’s very easy to ask a person to earn their own livelihood, but think about it – if the skills are missing how will a person be employed? Who likes to beg? I know self sufficiency is what every human likes to practice.”
– Suman Didwania, Trustee, Vedanta Foundation
