Agaram Foundation

In our endeavour to offer quality education to the deprived, our objectives are as follows:

  • Strive to bridge the gap between deserving candidates and quality education
  • Build a new generation of responsible youth with education, values, commitment and dedication to society.
  • In a rapidly modernizing world where traditional jobs are fast disappearing and education is the only means to secure future this illiteracy is a matter of grave concern. Actor surya , who knows of his father sivakumar’s struggle for education in his youth, understands this very well. It is this understanding that led to the setting up of Agaram foundation. Sivakumar has instituted an award for toppers in standard X and Xll board exams and some other categories. Surya wanted to build on this initiative and broaden it.
    Meanwhile, gnanavel a journalist-activist, had been successfully conducting an intervention programme for first generation learners in dharmapuri district, one of the most backward areas in tamilnadu. He had realized that hand holding the students through their often traumatic initiations into higher education was essential for ensuring that they completed their studies and following up on this he has roped in volunteers from the IT sector to act as mentors for these first generation learners. Impressed by the success of this model.

    What We Do

    Egalitarian Society

    Since Independence, our nation’s leaders and architects have dreamt of creating an egalitarian society with balanced growth. In spite of various measures put in place by successive Governments, achieving a well-balanced growth in physical and social infrastructure continues to remain a distant dream. Providing quality education for every single child is the only way of achieving our developmental goals, as sustainable development can begin only with education. Giving an opportunity and a better platform for learning will not only protect the child’s future, but in-turn will lead to transforming our society and nation.
