When asked what made him care about others and do his bit to society, Suriya replied, “My inspiration is Chiranjeevi sir. With the Blood Bank, he showed what difference he is going to make to the society as an actor and a celebrity. I mayn’t create a big impact as Chiranjeevi, but even if I could contribute 0.1 percent for a good cause I am happy. Of course, My dad Shivakumar has been doing social service for the past 34 years. I started Agaram Foundation which now produced 700 students who would be soon going to colleges. A lot of volunteers and corporate companies have been supportive of our foundation and invested so much time & money towards the initiative. Without their cooperation this couldn’t have been possible”.
Agaram Foundation is a non-profit organization working towards providing quality education to under-privileged. Suriya feels education is also a basic necessity in life apart from food, shelter and clothes. A good education gives a lot of hope to the entire family which intern benefits the society. The educational assistance provided by the foundation is a commendable job. Wish more success to Suriya for seeing more of his philanthropic work!
