Dear Friends,

Let Syeda’s story inspire you as we approach Women’s Day. Against the odds, the daughter of a daily-wage labourer is about to graduate as a fully qualified doctor. Twenty-three-year-old Syeda Hoorein lives in a one-room house in the slums of Bengaluru with her parents and two younger siblings.

“From the beginning, my daughter was bright in studies. She wanted to be a doctor but my biggest worry was our financial condition. Medical books, fees, coaching expenses – how could we ever afford to pay?”Syeda’s mother recalls. A chance meeting with one of our staff changed Syeda’s life.  The Foundation decided to support her higher education. With hard work and determination, she cleared the medical entrance exam. 

Now, she is in her last semester at Kempegowda Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) Bangalore and is on her way to becoming a qualified doctor.“Thank you Tech Mahindra Foundation and Vineet Sir for helping me fulfill my dream” shares Syeda. In fact, she has a message for others like her. She says, “If you are determined, poverty will never be a barrier in your pursuit of higher education, you will find support. So never give up and move steadily towards your goals.”

I hope that we empower more young women like Syedato reach their potential.

Warm regards,
Tech Mahindra Foundation
