Collaboration with CGCT

MEA Houston has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with CETA Galaxy Charitable Trust (CGCT) in Kerala to collaborate for the mutual benefit of both organizations. CGCT has established a bank account in Kerala for accepting donations in Indian rupees from former MEA Scholars and their well-wishers to provide scholarships to economically disadvantaged engineering students.

CGCT also has several charitable programs and projects in Kerala one of which is ‘HOPE’. This initiative supports academically brilliant school students from financially disadvantaged families by empowering them with education. We encourage our members, their families and friends to support ‘HOPE’ and contribute toward a worthy cause.
