At a very tender age of 19, with a vision of uplifting the community by providing free training programs and scholarships, Raj Square Charity Foundation (RSCF) was founded by Dr Mithileysh Sathiyanarayanan who was just a student back then. After graduating from the University of London, Dr. Mithileysh started providing support to several underprivileged students in India. The Raj Scholarships and Raj Learn4Free Programs were informally introduced in Jan 2010. However, the scholarships have now extended the support on a larger scale, which is well supported by the President of RSCF, Ms. Bhuvaneshwari Loganathan, who is also actively involved into Women Empowerment.
As technological advancements have constantly kept evolving, thereby finding new applications in the field of engineering, this has held the RSCF motivated in promoting underprivileged young students, engineers, educators and researchers for better career development and empower them for career advancement. The program builds a professional network of engineers, scientists and technologists offering inspiration, support and professional development. At grass-root level, the Foundation provides latest technology-related training to the rural men and women and provide complete career guidance and planning.
In 2020, for creating awareness on youth empowerment and talent enablement, RSCF established a program called “Research, Applications, Innovation, Science & Technology and Entrepreneurship (RAISE)”. Raj Square Charity Foundation is providing comprehensive, affordable and quality educational services to the neediest and to make India a better nation with 100% literacy rate for all citizens. Some of the services provided are, free Training & Learning, Internship Opportunities, Product Development Process, filing several intellectual patents for students, paying registration fees for conferences & publications. Also, providing several scholarships to students to pursue any specific programs/courses of their interest.
