    Dear sir,

    ARavindar Professional Excellance (APEX) Trust was started in 2005 and we are now running the Aravindar Polytechnic College in Ambathurai near Gandhigram University, Dindigul. With 800 students and 70 teaching and non teaching staff, we are offering Diplomas in Mehanical, Tool and Die, Electrical, Automobile and Civil Engineering. We have close working relationship with TVS Groups through Training programmes of TVS Training and Services Ltd, Chennai.

    We are very much interested to involve in the Climate Change Programmes of your esteemed institution. We are having nearly 10 acres of land in our college campus and now we are planning to form a sustainable agriculture demonstration site in this land.

    We request you to give us an appointment to meet you and discuss the possible involvement in your future programmes.

    With regards,

    Mrs. M. Prasanna
