RM ESI Foundation
Engaging, Enriching & Empowering Learners World Wide
"The RM ESI Foundation was established in 2007 as our corporate social responsibility (CSR) arm. More importantly, the Foundation also reiterates RM's commitment to the welfare and upliftment of the community that it is part of. The RM ESI Foundation's vision of providing support to under privileged children was set into motion through two welfare programs that commenced in 2007. This initiative is close to our hearts and resonates with the RM Group purpose which is “Enriching the lives of learners worldwide"
The following are the programs currently being run by the RM ESI Foundation:

This program was initiated with the purpose of aiding underprivileged students to pursue education in recognised institutions in Trivandrum. This scholarship scheme was initiated in 2007 to provide financial aid for the education of students who come under the low-income group in Kerala. Every year, students are added to this scheme. The RM ESI Foundation supports 51 students through the Graeme Dewart Scholarship for 2021. Out of which 16 students are school students and the other 35 are college students. The RM ESI Foundation takes the responsibility of paying school/college fees of these students.
So far, the Foundation has supported a total of 313 students through the Graeme Dewart Scholarship.
