Encouraging the education of school children ensures a better future for our nation. Therefore we inaugurated a scholarship scheme for needy students, who have excellent academic skills yet struggling with many financial difficulties. Our scholarship program ensures that all the expenses for their education are taken care of. The scholarships are offered for the students at intermediate level and continued until they complete secondary education. With the cooperation of the parents we evaluate whether they have nurtured their talents by the financial assistance provided by these scholarships.
Another key project we have organized is the annual dry rations distribution among underprivileged families in the surrounding area. More than 150 families are benefited by this program every year and it has been an immense relief for these families with low income levels.
