Excerpts from the interview with the team
The idea behind Edudharma- Education has become a costlier affair. Children who have excellent education records in the academics are not able to afford for further school or college and many drop out of their school/college due to lack of affordability. Affording for sports tournaments has become costly too. There are so many talented student athletes but they lack to participate in tournaments due to affordability and thus we lose many unrecognized sportsmen. Also, many skilled students who are good at arts and science projects need funding to take their innovative project ideas to next level. To make meet the needs of the eligible students, Edudharma is born.

Aim: EduDharma is the India’s first online Academic Crowdfunded Scholarship Platform, aims to bring students and academic advocates together to remove the financial barriers.
