About the partner
In the year 1996, after
years of working and living for themselves, a group of highly
successful, like minded and self-motivated individuals decided
it was ‘Pay back time’. Bharat Memorial Charitable
Trust was thus born at Panchkula in Haryana.
Being a part of the
highly educated strata of society and being aware of its
benefits, the trustees thought of doing their bit by educating
the underprivileged. They felt that the best way to equip
underprivileged with life skills and empower them to face
the realities of life was to educate them. The trust since
its inception has been serving the underprivileged through
scholarships, medical camps, sports events, interest free
education loans, supporting orphanages etc.
