Avtar Human Capital Trust (AHCT), the not-for-profit arm of Avtar Group, on Tuesday gave away scholarships to girl children who were part of its Project Puthri initiative, which aims to build “career intentionality” among girl students studying in government and government-aided schools.

A release said the scholarships, worth ₹2 lakh, were awarded to the students by Saundarya Rajesh, founder-president of Avtar Group and managing trustee of AHCT in the presence of Australian Ambassador for Gender Equality Stephanie Copus Campbell and Australian Consul General to South India Sarah Kirlew.
