The Learning Tea

We Brew Scholars

Our mission is to provide life scholarships to impoverished young women in India by giving them the opportunity to continue their education through university. The Learning Tea pays for complete tuition and living costs for our young scholars while providing a safe and stable dormitory living environment.










Thank you for your interest in supporting The Learning Tea! Every little bit of help we get goes a long way in the lives of our scholars. Here are some of the ways to help:

  • Drink and dine at Dr. Bombay’s Underwater Tea Party. After all, it all started here. Sales from the shop are our main source of financial support . The store is a huge part of how we spread the word about our work, and you can easily support the cause by making a donation at the store.

  • Attend our monthly “A Taste of India” dinners. Our dinners take place on the last Monday of each month at 6:30 pm. For a $20 ticket, you can enjoy an authentic Indian 3-course vegetarian meal. You can also purchase a raffle ticket for $1 to enter a chance to win a fantastic basket full of unique treasures. All of the proceeds of our dinner go directly to our scholars. 

  • Volunteer at our monthly "A Taste of India" dinners. Volunteering with us is a great way to feel connected to our scholars. Volunteering also assists in making our dinners a success so our scholars have continued support to pursue their education and their dreams. Sign up for a volunteer position here .

  • Contribute to our monthly raffle basket. Are you a business or individual who would like to put something into our monthly raffle basket at our "A Taste of India" dinner? This is a great way to advertise and reach a local crowd. Your item of donation can be dropped off at Dr. Bombay’s.

  • Purchase Learning Tea online or at Dr. Bombay’s. Packs of Learning Tea are $12 and help fund necessities like notebooks, book bags, and shoes. Black and green teas are available.

  • Purchase used books at Dr. Bombay’s for a $1 donation (or donate some!). The walls of our tea shop are lined with used books and we even have some vintage books for a minimum $5 donation.

  • Donate online here.

  • Donate air miles. We love getting air miles! Flying to India is one of our greatest expenses and air miles are a huge help. Delta SkyMiles can be donated to our account number, 2277150252.

  • Join us on a trip to India. We only go to India twice a year, so we have to get the most out of every trip. The more man power we have the more we can get done! This is the most hands-on way you can help. Head to the India Trip tab for more information.

  • Follow us and spread the word. Follow The Learning Tea and Dr. Bombay’s Underwater Tea Party on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram for daily information about events and other ways that you can support our scholars.
