Indo-Canadian NGO to sponsor the children of martyred Indian soldiers for higher education in Canada

Children of martyred Indian soldiers will be sponsored to study in Canada by an Indo-Canadian nonprofit. The Toronto-based Canada-India Foundation (CIF) raised over C$100,000 for this purpose at its Charity Golf Tournament here last week.

"This golf tournament is our new initiative to support the families of fallen Indian soldiers. We will support the children of these families to get higher education in Canada as well as India. We will pay all their expenses," said CIF chairman Satish Thakkar.
