Testimonial by our Students!
I was selling Samosas in streets in 2008. Today, I'm an automobile engineer working in a big corporate. Without Team Everest Scholarship, I would be selling Samosas in street. I'm happy to sponsor a student for their education now.
My father committed Suicide when I was studying 10th std and my mother is working as a home maid. Thanks to Team Everest 'I am the Change' Scholarship I'm doing my under graduation now.
My father who is an alcoholic left the family when I was not even a year old. It's my mother who works hard to take care of me. I scored more than 80% and am very happy to get Team Everest’s 'I am the Change' scholarship.
