Tej Kohli foundation grants for youth sports

A new play area opened for school children, funded by Tej Kohli tej kohli

San Jose, Costa Rica; July 26, 2007
"It takes a man of the world to know how to truly help the world, and Tej Kohli is that type of man. While he may not be as well known as Richard Branson or Donald Trump yet, Tej is a prime example of a man of ambition, vision and caring who could very well be in the next generation of the world's great business leaders." says Michelle Lyn Joesiph, a sports teacher , at the time of play structure's official opening.

She was gladly guiding visitors to the new sports field paid for by Tej Kohli who moved to Costa Rica from India in 1999 and decided to help the people in the region surrounding his newfound hometown of San Jose.

Tej Kohli founder and chief mentor of Grafix Softech interactive software firm, and owner of the oil exploration corporation Granox, Ltd, has earlier committed a funding to build an improved and well-tended sports field for the students of the local school near the edge of this Costa Rica village.

Manuel Arredondo is proud to see the progress that's been made in his humble town in the five years since he became mayor. But even more, Arredondo takes pride and speaks with gratitude for the help that one man has provided on all these fronts. "That man, Tej, has a lot of ideas, and a man with ideas can change the world," says Arredondo with an impressed smile on his face. "That's the real lesson he's taught me, but thanks to all the help he's giving our schoolchildren, they are learning many other lessons as well."

Indeed, since launching Grafix Softech in 1999, Tej has profited greatly from his innovative approach to creating interactive solutions to the many problems that businesses face. But more importantly, he's realized the greatness of giving back to the world around him - and that's why he's poured nearly $300,000 of his own personal funds into the Tej Kohli Foundation in an attempt to make his new neighbors' lives easier both now and in the future.
