Pathanamthitta District’s record in art and sports fields is comparatively poor and some of the backward areas of the District, which has large number of economically weak communities lag behind in academic field as well although there are few exceptions. As an attempt to redeem this situation, the Association has conceived and has been implementing its novel scholarship scheme of “HOPE” (Helping Hands of Pathanamthitta Expatriates) by which the Association identifies students belonging to economically weak background who excel in studies and provide them scholarships to meet their academic expenses. The HOPE scheme commenced in 2014 was inaugurated by Rajya Sabha Deputy Speaker, Shri. P.J. Kurian and has benefitted almost 300 students from various Schools in Pathanamthitta District by now. The Association also gives Cash awards to students who excel in arts and sports competitions in State and National levels to encourage and motivate them to realize their potential and to attain glories in their respective fields. The Event “HRIDAYATHIL SOOKSHIKKAN” is aimed to raise a good capital to strengthen our above schemes, activities and humanitarian services.
