Grantor's Testimonials

Netri Foundation

"Our work focuses on providing opportunities to youth in some of the poorest countries where affordable financing options are just not available for them to pursue higher education and fulfil their full potential. We expect that through this scholarship program we can seed the growth of future leaders of impact investing within their own society and the world at large".

John F. And Mary A. Geisse Foundation

"The impact investing revolution is not fully realized until you engage individuals from the bottom of the pyramid who understand the issues first hand, can relate them, and find solutions to help lift the community at a local level".

Scholar's Testimonial

“Due to this scholarship program, I am able to attain higher studies and get exposed to various opportunities. SIMA Impact Foundation has truly invested a lot in many less privileged lives, which has greatly impacted me and the society at large. Above all, it has planted in me the attitude and spirit to pay back to my society”.

Alex Sankale

“This scholarship program benefitted me in different ways as it has reduced the financial burden on my parents and myself. The experience gained from internship has helped me to gain insight on how to transform society through education. I would like to utilize my skills to teach students like myself who have the desire to learn but lack the financial resources to do so”.

Ramza Ali

“I am thankful to SIMA Impact Foundation because it has given me the opportunity to pursue education without any mental pressure of managing finances. Besides, I have developed an interest in impact investing because it reinstalls hope in those who think that their dreams may never be fulfilled due to financial constraints”.
