USA Scholarships

In 2024, TEF presented scholarships to two graduating high school senior young ladies here in the USA, one in Florida and another in NJ.
They are Ms. Jordyn and Ms. Abigail. TEF wishes them the best


HISTORY IN THE MAKING starting in 2024

TEF had the privilege of being invited to the official “Making Diwali a New York City Public School Holiday” Bill signing event hosted by Governor of New York Kathy Hochul. Indeed a historical moment!



TEF together with the local Karayogam helped build a house for 2 students who lost everything in a fire.

The Key to the house was handed over on 12th November, 2023 at a small gathering


TEF thanks all its well-wishers, sponsors and mentors who generously donated towards this cause.
