Vidya Archana

A compound word, “Vidya Archana” stands for worshiping knowledge. Its meaning is derived from the Hindi language words “Vidya”, which means knowledge, and “Archana”, which means worship.

We believe that education is the key to a better life and a better society. Therefore, Vidya Archana was started as an effort by SETU to share and spread knowledge. This program is aimed for the children of the underprivileged section of society who have all the will but no means to fulfill their education needs.The program focuses on collecting used books and stationary from donations and raising funds. They are then redistributed to economically disadvantaged children who want to study but don’t have the resources to continue their education. Financial aid is also given to students in terms of scholarships, merit awards and sponsorship for higher education. Vidya Archana is currently being undertaken in northern India, helping more and more kids each year.
