With the government providing free education to children from Class 1 to 10, ensuring primary education for all, we ensure higher education for the talented, needy & for those who cannot afford to continue any further studies. The Smart Kids Foundation ® provides financial assistance for higher education to poor & talented students who have completed their SSLC in Kannada medium in Udupi district.

Many of the students cannot continue their education after they pass 10th standard because of the higher fees they have to pay for admission to college & the increase in the expenses for academics. The foundation was established in the year 2010 with the motto of providing financial aid for the education of such children without any special preference based on caste or religion. In the year 2014, we thought of giving it a formal recognition by registering it as
Smart Kids Foundation ®, Brahmavar. It was inaugurated on 02-Oct- 2014 at Dharmavara Roof Top by Shri B Shrinivasa Shetty, Retired Head Master, Balkudru.
The ceremony was presided over by

  • SS Pattanasetty (DC, Udupi Dist)
  • Sri P Rajendra Prasad (Superintendent of Police, Udupi Dist)
  • Anand C Kundar (Founder, Geethananda Foundation, Kota)
  • Sri Purushottama Shetty (Ujwala Developers, Udupi)
