First and foremost, we are focused on our brothers and sisters who are back in our homeland. As students we thrive to give what we can for the children back home, focusing on their education. This is the sole purpose of our cause team.
On the other hand, there are many Tamil students and children alike, here in this country, who need guidance and education, which again we hope to provide. This is acheived by all the other teams amidst us in UKTSU.
