Anti -tobacco campaign was carried out through lectures, talk shows & poster painting competitions. more...

  Summary

 

The head this NGO has a history with Ravi, one of the founders of AID, and has been funded by AID in the past as a focus group.

Special endowments, Jayaraman Leukemia Fund, GKR Fund & Aishwarya Memorial Fund have been created to target specific needs. “ Vasantham” is an unique & ambitious program to reach cancer awareness at the grass root level.
