The Chandran Tharoor Foundation (CTF), set up in the memory of my late father, Chandran Tharoor (December 17, 1929 - October 23, 1993) honours the memory of a noble and selfless individual whose generosity was legendary among friends, family and strangers. It aims to help the weaker sections of society through modest grants in the areas of relief for persons in distress, educational and health care assistance, and miscellaneous services to improve the quality of life of vulnerable groups. Based in Thiruvananthapuram, its activities are mainly centred in south Kerala.
