It is here that I have to thank Avanse Financial Services for facilitating a whole new Education experience by distributing tablets to our specially abled and underprivileged students and building interest among students so that they can continue with their online education journey for their bright future” To create an impact in the lives of students at the grassroots level, Avanse Financial Services has been in an alliance with three NGOs – MelJol, Samarthanam and Muktangan for education-focused initiatives under its CSR arm.
