The GIFT Foundation strives to realize its objectives through the projects and programs it carries out. The trust welcomes your interest and involvement. Here are some of the ways you can participate and help brighten the lives of youngsters from the rural areas
Many contribute by sharing their expertise or resources to enhance teaching, learning, environment or facilities at our schools. Please see some of the recently sponsored projects at AGN SCHOOL. Similarly, one may choose to sponsor projects at APPU ARIVAALAYEM or at AGN CRS as well.
AGN SCHOOL and APPU ARIVAALAYEM are fee based schools. We strive to support deserving students through merit or financial aid scholarships. Currently about 8% of AGN students receive support, and out of which about 30% are sponsored scholarships by individual donors.
Patrons make a significant contribution towards the development of the trust objectives and development. We are grateful to the interest and support given by the many patrons of GIFT and AGN SCHOOL from across the globe.
