The trust also released a documentary on the NGO’s efforts at education, attracting more donations to this continued effort.

The event also put emphasis on interfaith harmony by providing scholarships to students of different communities with a common criterion of merit and means.

The NGO has been working in the field of education and social upliftment since 1999 and emphasizes women’s education with more than 75% of awards given to them.
