Kochi/Dubai: Kalpesh Kinariwala, the Founder of affordable luxury real estate development company, Pantheon Elysee Real Estate Development, distributed scholarships to 500 students in Kerala, India, to support them in their educational pursuits.
The CSR initiative of Dubai-based Pantheon Elysee Real Estate Development under the theme of `Building Foundations for a Brighter Future,’ was in partnership with the Kochi-based Prof. K.V. Thomas Vidhyadhanam Trust, which has been providing financial incentives, scholarships and other initiatives for school children for years.
The trustee of Vidhyadhanam Trust is K.V Thomas, former minister in Kerala Legislative Assembly and member of Lok Sabha. The scholarships were distributed to students in an event in Kochi, the commercial capital of Kerala, by the State Industries Minister, P. Rajeev.
The scholarship scheme started on September 9 2023 and it will be implemented in three phases, benefitting a total of 3,000 students of class 10th and 12th who have secured A+ in all subjects in their current academic year from government and aided schools in Ernakulam Parliamentary Constituency.
“We passionately believe in supporting bright young students, who are the future pillars of tomorrow. With this CSR project, Pantheon Development is embarking on a transformative journey by helping build and enhance the foundations for education to empower young children to shape their future,” said Kalpesh Kinariwala, adding that Pantheon was grateful for the opportunity to be part of the initiative which is led by the Vidhyadhanam Trust.

We are passionate about building a strong future – whether it be through great building or empowering the next generation to build a brighter future.” Said Kalpesh Kinariwala.
Speaking on the occasion, Prof. K V Thomas, the trustee of Vidhyadhanam Trust, said it is the third lot of scholarships in the new scheme which were distributed at the event.
