Actor Sivakumar has been providing cash awards for Toppers in the Board Examinations for a very long time, through his educational trust.
Since 2006, Agaram has been lending a helping hand to support the activities of Sivakumar Educational & Charitable Trust, by identifying deserving school students from Government Schools in rural Tamilnadu.
Sivakumar Educational & Charitable Trust was founded by Mr. Sivakumar in the year 1979, on completion of his 100th film. He started the trust to support the education of the poor and needy from the rural areas of Tamil Nadu. He continues to deliver the service of awarding financial assistance to the state and government school toppers in the Higher Secondary Examinations every year.
The 35 years legacy of nurturing the needy is now carried on by his beloved son and well acclaimed actor Mr. R S Suriya.
"The sufferings of the children who move to Cities for the sake of education may be a hearsay incident to others. But to me, it is a personal experience. While I was studying in Chennai, it was difficult for me to meet my personal needs with the meagre pocket money provided by my parents.
I always remember my struggle during my college days, which drove me into finding ways to support students like me. It gives me a sense of satisfaction now to meticulously look out for the needy children like myself, from all over Tamil Nadu and help them. Let us all try to elevate the lives of more students in the future" says Mr. Sivakumar.
