Ananda Fund

For orphans and underprivileged children in the state of Orissa, India the Ananda Fund offers opportunity through financial help that has been continuing non-stop for the last 47 years.

This wonderful program was created through the initiative and the sacrifice made by Dr. Ralph Victor and Polly Victor for the educational upliftment of the poor high school children in rural areas and tribal dominated regions. This year we lost Polly Victor, and her daughter, Joyce Victor, will now head this fund.

Children receive aid in the form of monthly scholarship, textbook and uniform grants, examination fee grants, admission fee grants, grants for writing materials, science room equipment, vocation training, etc., and support is provided on the basis of their economic and academic background.
