Habitat for Humanity’s Fund-Raising Indian Drive

August 8, 2018

Bengaluru, India: Habitat for Humanity, the global non-profit housing organisation and ‘Sustainable Development Partner’ of the Asian Tour, is linking with the TAKE Solutions Masters to help fulfil its aim of providing a decent place to live for everyone.

The US$350,000 TAKE Solutions Masters will see some of the region’s most talented golfers contend at the Karnataka Golf Association from August 9-12.

The tournament is sponsored by TAKE Solutions, a globally recognised domain expert offering end-to-end Life Sciences solutions and is committed to putting Indian golf and its players on the global map.

SSP Chawrasia along with local boys Khalin Joshi and Chikkarangappa S. as well as Chiragh Kumar will all feature in the Asian Tour event.

Habitat for Humanity’s presence at the TAKE Solutions Masters will create awareness among the golfing fraternity about the need for decent shelter and help it raise funds. Today they will host an exclusive Pro-Am tournament.

The event will attract a cross-section of celebrities including former Indian cricketer Syed Kirmani and business leaders Shashi Kiran Shetty (Chairman – AllCargo Logistics Ltd), R. Ramakrishnan (CEO – Polycab Group) and Sanjay Sanghani (CEO, Unicorn Pickles). They are coming together to support the fund-raising activities and, in particular, the drive to transform the lives of farmers’ widows across India.

The fund-raising will continue with a live and silent auction of golf-related memorabilia and unique experiences, with the proceeds adding to the funds raised during the day.

Rajan Samuel, Managing Director, Habitat for Humanity India, said: “As we celebrate the 35th anniversary of Habitat for Humanity’s work in India, we feel proud to be associated with Asian Tour as the Sustainable Development Partner. We thank TAKE Solutions Masters for advocating the cause of affordable housing. This partnership will help the widows of India’s farmers to build the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to improve their lives.”
