Malar Trust India is a registered non-profit organization founded in 2011 on the initiative of two long time friends, one Indian and one Italian, with a common dream: to help children from the poorest section of society to reach a better life through education.
They both strongly believe that if children are given the opportunity to study up to the highest level they can change not only their life but also the life of their families, with a general long-run improvement of the welfare of the communities they belong to.
So they decided to work together with two “sister” organizations, one Italian, Malar Trust Onlus, and one Indian, Malar Trust India: Malar Trust Onlus fundraises in Europe to collect the money to support the projects of Malar Trust India.
Presently, they raise and spend about 30 lahks annually, working in five villages around Poonjery, in the Kancheepuram District of Tamil Nadu. In this area, they run some Education Centers as small hubs of their various activities: nurseries, tuition centers, scholarships programmes, tailoring classes and social welfare.
