The Ganga Learning Centre operates under the Shri Dinesh Shankar Tripathi Memorial Foundation in India, and it is supported by an international network of donors, mostly based in Holland, Germany and the United Kingdom. Depending on where they are coming from, international donations are processed by our project leaders and their partnering organisations in those three countries.
What is the Shri Dinesh Shankar Tripathi Memorial Foundation?
In 2002, Mani Shankar Tripathi (GLC co-founder) and his nephew Dineshi Tripathi started planning a sustainable educational project promoting culture, arts, and literacy to people in underprivileged communities in Varanasi and surrounding areas. Dinesh passed away in 2004, so in his honor, Manishankar continued the plan and started the Shri Dinesh Shankar Tripathi Memorial Foundation in 2005. This is the umbrella foundation under which the Ganga Learning Center operates since December 2011.
