    • Patron, KFUNAI
      Former International Civil Servant, United Nations, New York
      United Nations Academic Impact was first introduced at the 2014 Alumni annual meeting of Christian College, Chengannur. Attendees of the meeting were interested and BMC, Thuruthikadu, received UNAI membership first in Kerala. The word spread to nearby colleges and St. Thomas College, Kozencherry, followed by Christian College, Chengannur received the UNAI membership as well. At that moment I put forward the idea of creating a network of UNAI members and Kerala Forum on United Nations Academic Impact (KFUNAI) was created. The official first meeting of KFUNAI was convened at Relax Inn, Chengannur, Kerala. Currently we have 60 plus professional Colleges and Universities in Kerala State and in other States of India.
