Prime Trust is a grassroots non-governmental organization established in Puducherry, India in 2002. The initiative came after our founder, S.M. Arasu, witnessed the social inequalities women in India faced and the financial burden placed on families when only male members were making a living. Hence, our organization focuses on these areas: Raising Social Awareness, Educating Children, and Empowering Women.
Our work aims to empower women, get rid of inequalities, give educational and social care to children and families, and raise advocacy of impoverished families in India. We achieve these through programs like self-help groups led by women, children’s summer camps, social awareness campaigns on different topics, and microfinance operations, among others. We maintain partnerships with NGOs all over the world to support educational campaigns and medical missions in the rural villages within Viluppuram District. Our programs are joined by volunteers through India Volunteer Care - our sister organization.
