Navprakashan Foundation is a non-governmental organisation (NGO) founded by Vineet Nagrani and wife Saleena Nagrani. Vineet has had a distinguished career in the financial services industry across the globe and together with his wife Saleena, has a deep urge to help the underprivileged sections of the society.
Education for all is a subject very close to Vineet and Saleena’s hearts, and through Navprakashan Foundation, they want to ensure that education reaches as many underprivileged children as possible to create a stronger India. Hence, the foundation offers financial assistance in the form of the Shri Ram Nagrani Scholarship to help the needy students.
In 2020, the Foundation started by providing scholarships to students from the Indian Institute of technology (Kanpur), Vineet’s alma mater.
