Thanks to your generous donations, HUGGS has exceeded its Matching Gift Campaign goal of $10,000! In fact, thanks to an anonymous donor’s matching grant we have reached a total of $20,596.55. What a wonderful way to start HUGGS’ 15th Anniversary year!
HUGGS Canada is a registered Canadian charity, empowering youth through education in South East India. HUGGS focuses on promising young people who have the ability to excel in education, but are without the resources to study beyond Grade 10.
Thanks to our generous donors, we sponsor young people in Visakhapatnam (Vizag), to complete their secondary and post-secondary education. Students are selected based on financial need, academic ability and family encouragement.
Today more than 30 HUGGS graduates are working in their communities in careers including nursing, teaching, engineering, finance and computing.
