At a press conference in the city, 8 of the 40 scholarships were given away by Mr. Arjun Ranga,
Managing Director, Cycle Pure Agarbathi, to deserving girls in the presence of their parents.
The remaining scholarships are now open for differently abled girls in the state. With this
event, N Ranga Rao & Sons join the global celebration of the International Day of the Girl Child,
themed this year as ‘Our Time is now – our rights, our future.’
The event also witnessed the unveiling of TVCs featuring renowned TV artistes such as K.S

Selvan, and Swathi Sharma. The TV Campaign was directed by the Late Mr. Shanmugam. His
mother, Mrs. Ulagammal was present at the event on his behalf.
Speaking about the scholarship programme introduced for the Girl Child, Mr. Arjun Ranga said,
“We are committed to uplifting the girl child and empowering them to have access to quality
education. The initiative will also elevate their families from financial challenges to a certain
extent. The girls that we are looking at for this scholarship should belong to underprivileged
families who cannot afford education. The parents of the 8 girls that we have already identified
for the scholarship are struggling daily wagers, and it is a challenge for them to provide
education to their children.”
“We will increase the number of scholarships and make this an annual feature with an objective
to reach out to many more children who could benefit from this initiative”, he added.
N. Ranga Rao & Sons takes pride in serving the community with initiatives that are focused on
uplifting the underprivileged and providing them with opportunities to earn livelihoods. As a
part of its continuous endeavour to provide equal opportunities to differently abled girls in the
country, the annual scholarship program was announced.
