To uplift the less fortunate by providing educational resources funded by voluntary do-nations that are matched by S2Tech.
Day Veerlapati, S2Tech's President and CEO, established the Fortune Fund to support educational opportunities for children from impoverished families in rural Indian communities. Financial assistance from the Fund enables the children's parents, farmers or laborers who cannot afford the luxury of an education, to let their children go to school and allows them to keep their children in school much longer than possible without financial support.
By providing the youth in poverty access to education, they become qualified for more job opportunities. This ac-cess to education and jobs gives the students the opportunity to bring themselves and their families out of poverty which in turn benefits the entire community. It is the goal of S2Tech and the Fortune Fund to create a positive eco-nomic impact on these communities so that they can grow and thrive in the future.
Each year, high potential students from the 7th grade who are at risk of being pulled out of school due to their finan-cial circumstances are selected to be provided with monetary and emotional support until they graduate. The For-tune Fund pays for the student's tuition, school supplies, two uniforms, and a pair of shoes. In recent years, the pro-gram has helped to enhance their learning environment even further by equipping each school with books, lab equipment, computers, and Internet access.
S2Tech takes pride in supporting this non-profit organization, mentoring programs, and financial contributions, and fund raisers such as:
97% of all proceeds go directly the students, and the other 3% go towards event costs. Each of these events and others has helped us to expand the For-tune Fund to support even more students.
In addition to financial support, S2Tech employee(s) volunteer to mentor these students along the way, helping them to achieve top rankings among their classmates. The men-tors provide encouragement and emotional support to Fortune Fund students.
Through a voluntary educational support program, we assign an employee to mentor each Fortune Fund sponsored student. The mentors meet with their students personally; correspond with them through e-mail about school activities and homework; and en-courage them to study and work hard to obtain good grades.
...and much more!
