Aspiring Life Scholarship

IDFC FIRST Bank in partnership with Bubbles Centre for Autism awards scholarships to young adults on the autism spectrum to complete their special education at Bubbles Centre for Autism. We have supported scholarships and life-skills training for 104 young adults on the spectrum since the commencement of the program in 2017.

Our Impact

Apart from supporting 104 young adults through scholarships in Bangalore, we also launched a rural community based program - 'Aadhar' in FY 2019-20 to support first level intervention program for 25 students with global delay development(GDD), Autism spectrum disorder(ASD) and intellectual disabilities(ID) in Hospet district of Karnataka in partnership with Bubbles school for autism and implementation partner - Akansha school for special children.
As part of this program, in the first year we are funding capacity building of parents and teachers of Akansha school for special children to support 9 children with Intellectual disability studying at Akansha school for special children.

We have also produced short films in and around the subject of autism to create awareness among the masses about the capabilities and challenges of a person with autism. These films are screened on-ground and on-line as an advocacy initiative to influence corporates, NGOs, parents of youth with autism and other important stakeholders to the increasing need for creating inclusive employment opportunities for youth with autism. This grant covers the cost of special education and early intervention for students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
