“I am Varsha (Varsha means ‘Rain’), pursuing Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology, with Civil Service At St. Teresa’s College, Cochin, ( City in Kerala). I reside at Nettithizhu, a small farming village of High ranges. My father has been a MASS member for the past 15 years. MASS awarded me scholarships for both O- Levels and A- Levels. It empowered my continuing higher education. During Covid times, MASS ensures that all members are taken care of Children’s Scholarship and Farmer’s Bonus eased the financial burden. What an encouragement for us students! Three cheers to Team MASS, Mr Biju Mon, President and the Board Members! Thank you”
