NGO Profile :
Mugavari Foundation was established to focus on helping deserving students from humble background to continue their pursuit for higher education in Chennai. They accomplish this by either taking care of all their needs or providing these students with partial scholarships.

During FY14 Mugavari Foundation accommodated 40 new students. Of these 30 joined professional courses and 10 students are preparing for civil services. Besides these, more than 100 existing student beneficiaries through Mugavari continue to get support. In addition to smaller donors, Mugavari continues to benefit from food and accommodation facilities from their long time patron, Mr. Duraisamy of the Manidhanaeyam Charitable Trust. As of today there are 232 students who have been taken care of by Mugavari with the help of more than 133 sponsors and 7 Vanavil Students.

Vanavil (Tamil for rainbow) is an Alumni programme through which ex-students students who have benefitted from the Mugavari Foundation are encouraged to give back. These students contribute 7% of their income to Mugavari to help fund for their education programme
