Pinnacle’s new charity partner for 2023, Venkat Trust


Pinnacle are delighted to announce our new charity partnership with Venkat Trust.

Venkat Trust supports education and school facilities for children in the fishing village of Kovalam, near Chennai in India. The charity, founded in 2004, has funded thousands of pupils in Primary and Higher Secondary schools and students who wish to continue their education at university or vocational training.

“The Venkat Trust is delighted that Pinnacle have chosen us as their charity partner and will sponsor some of Kovalam’s poorest children. It’s a great fit – education is at the heart of what we both do. The children sponsored by Pinnacle can now look forward to a bright future and all the opportunities of an excellent education,” says Sylvia Holder, founder of Venkat Trust.

Over the last 19 years, the charity has built numerous school buildings, starting with the Ganesh Building of classrooms, the Venkat Tuition Centre, a flagship Higher Secondary school, Community Hall, and fantastic sporting facilities. Through the hard work of the Venkat Trust, Kovalam is now a village of educational excellence with a thriving community.

“Education and learning spaces are at the heart of everything we do. Our partnership with Venkat Trust aligns with our commitment to build better school facilities for the next generation,” says Daryl Stanley, Managing Director of Pinnacle.

“We chose Venkat Trust because they are tangible and transparent as an organisation. All the money raised is invested in the learning and welfare of each child. Our sponsorship of students also allows us to see how they progress and support them on their educational journey.”
