What we want to do…
What we want to do is to add wings to the dreams of the young by equipping them with the power of education.
We value education as a leveller in this unequal world and are willing to extend a helping hand to those in need of it. We strive to expose the young nurturing minds to all available avenues of learning, help to identify the stars they should aim for, and also support them to achieve their goals. Our activities includes providing aid to underprivileged students towards expenses of fees, books and uniforms, arranging workshops for career counseling programs and motivational sessions.
What have we done…
The biggest achievement for us is, since inception, we have supported the education of 238 deserving students from 80 different schools and 22 colleges across Coimbatore, Chennai, Trichy, Puducherry, Kerala and Hyderabad.
Several initiatives of Punyah – ‘Step-Up’, ‘Trishnah’, ‘Punyah Radio club’ are well received and generated a goodwill among the academic circles and student communities.
Step Up – An annual career guidance program for students from 9th standard to 12th standard. Objective is to apprise the students on the latest trends in education and give an insight into various courses/career options available. A platform to meet and interact with the leading educationalists and academicians.
Trishnah – An annual inter school and inter college quiz competition held in Coimbatore. Objective is to expose the kids to the wonderland of general knowledge and inculcate the spirit of competition.
Punyah Radio club – A talent promotion activity in collaboration with All India Radio, Coimbatore where children under our care of Punyah Foundation get a chance to show case their talents. Our four programs went on air, much to the thrill of the children and their families.
Fund raisers – We conduct annual sport events to raise funds and to spread the message of gift of education among public and corporates. Punyah Cricket League is conducted among corporates and Punyah Badminton League is open for sports enthusiasts of all ages and walks of life.
We proactively explore options to create platforms to recognize and nurture the talents of these children.
