Humara Bachpan Fellowship Program

Bridging Gap Between Poverty & Aspirations

HBT has instituted its fellowship program for students from urban poor backgrounds who are not able to continue education due to poor economic background of their families. Through the Fellowship program, HBT reaches out to the neediest and most vulnerable children who have the interest to continue education but are forced to drop out due to their circumstances. The children are supported to pursue education from the secondary level to the Post graduate level. Humara Bachpan Fellowship is supported by individuals and entities and has different Fellowship programs under its banner namely The Dipika Patnaik Fellowship, Dhiren Patnaik Fellowship, and Ashish Kumar Fellowship. The Dipika Patnaik Fellowship has been instituted in 2017 in the memory of Ms Dipika Patnaik by her family members who passed away in a fatal road accident while still a student. Under the Dipika Patnaik Fellowship, young girls from urban poor backgrounds are supported to pursue their higher education in professional courses. In the reporting year, nine young boys and girls, from urban slums in India, are being supported by the Humara Bachpan Fellowship Program in different education. The Centurion University of Technology & Management (CUTM) has come forward to shape the future of these students providing hands-on, ‘experience based’, ‘practice oriented’ learning under different technical courses with a fifty percent scholarship on the course fee.
