Prof. P.M. Abraham Memorial Award

Sponsored by

Ani Abraham, IL

Prof. P.M Abraham was a man of faith. Being a Holy Bible Scholar and Preacher, he believed that 'it is more blessed to give than to receive.' (Acts 20:35). His family counts him as the best blessing they received from God. This scholarship is a humble offering to God Almighty to thank Him for all the blessings his family received. By supporting ICON Charities' efforts to help the less fortunate get education, the scholarship helps to fulfil his vision to encourage education in the community.
