Welcome to Nilaya Foundation

A bright kid shines by his own light. It is so true that sincerity and hard work in a student makes him/her instantly likeable to society.The fact that the child upholds the purity of education above tempting distractions - at a young age too,is something not many of us can resist appreciating. What can be more painful than knowing that such a student is handicapped by the lack of resources to justify his/her talent? And to think in countries like our own such a case is as common as some of the more fortunate of us being able to read this! It was similar thoughts that brought together some of us to initiate a difference and Nilaya Foundation was born.
Nilaya Foundation is an institution dedicated to help the economically weaker, deserving Brahmin students achieve their educational goals by providing financial help, mentoring, continued career guidance. Nilaya or home is exactly what we at Nilaya Foundation strive to give promising, needy students so that they come out successful in their academic pursuits.
