MANJULA SOCIAL WELFARE FOUNDATION TRUST was initiated with a view to actively contribute to the social and economic development of the communities in which we operate and to be an organization that continually responds to the changing social realities through the development and application of knowledge, toward the development of a sustainable society that promotes education, awareness, healthy society and protects the equality, social justice and Human Rights for all. We believed that knowledge would lead to awareness, which would further lead to self-development, empowerment, awareness and action. TRUST came into existence as a result of the motivation and personal initiative of its founders, to enhance the social status of the underprivileged people. Hailing from a rural family, the founders were no stranger to hardships faced by the underprivileged. Having overcome economic and social challenges, due to the backing and economic blessings from certain elder society leaders, the founders set out to do their best to make a positive difference in the lives of fellow underprivileged, working with a team of committed people. 72+Programs & Trainings 10+Daily Voulenters 20+Work Session 1000+Happy Faces Working on Mission The key areas identified for interventions include child & women's rights, education, health and hygiene, sustainable livelihood, and old age safety.

While implementing different developmental projects, our thrust has always been on working through people’s participation. At Manjula Trust, we have always believed in the capacities and capabilities of the communities, and have always strived to channel their hidden energies for the betterment of society at large. Our efforts have always been directed toward creating an environment that is conducive to enhancing opportunities for local people to think and act positively. We have always endeavoured to develop skills and competencies of the local communities with a view to enabling them to operate and maintain the assets created through the implementation of the projects on a sustainable basis. This philosophy of ours has led us to adopt a holistic and participatory approach to rural development. We believe in an inclusive approach, covering all the sections of the society, particularly the underprivileged. We work with approaches, principles and techniques.
