The cost of medical education is very expensive compared to other professional courses in India. Many aspiring medical students drop out of medical school, due to the lack of money. They come from economically and socially backward families, who neither have the means or knowledge to support their children’s higher studies.
Ardara Darshanam plans to raise funds from individuals, corporates, and institutions to help medical students belonging to marginalised/downtrodden sections of our society and equip them to become medical and health professionals.More Details
