India Scholarship Foundation
India is an Integral part of our global business strategy, with delivery centers based in Noida, Bangalore, Chennai and Pune. Sopra Steria in India offers a full spectrum of services and solutions to help our customers reach new levels in their development and competitiveness. While India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world, it is also one of the most unequal and poorest countries in the world.
Sopra Steria has been committed for over 10 years with an education programme in India aimed at combating poverty and reducing inequality. This programme is aimed at children from poor rural areas, in particular girls, who can benefit from public sector schools located close to the company’s sites. Over 70,000 children and young people, in 60 schools from primary to secondary level, benefit from the programme and are supported in their schooling by hundreds of Sopra Steria volunteers.
To facilitate access to higher education for young children, Sopra Steria has developed a major scholarship programme to provide financial assistance to bright young children from Sopra Steria supported schools to pursue a college/university education. These students come from extremely challenged backgrounds and who otherwise would be left with no option but to drop out after they complete their schooling.
Sopra Steria Benelux is currently sponsoring eleven Scholars, eight of them are young girls, in their road for a better and brighter future. We value and understand the opportunities that come out of having an education. For that reason, we are confident that the India Scholarship Program will open doors for children that otherwise would have been impossible to reach.
