    It is indeed a very noble task by Dhrithi Foundation in association with Prerna-Infosys. Even today there are number of poor students who have excellent academic background but due to financial constraints/lack of family support are unable to pursue higher studies. It is in this context, the support/encouragement by the Organisation is great.
