poThis Trust was started in 1993, with the objective of practical and constructive upliftment of the children, women and negelected lot from the downtrodden communities of our society, especially, scheduled castes (SC) and scheduled tribes (ST).

Founder of this Trust, Sri. Mohanangayya Swami is a well known veterean in the Dalit and social movements since the 80s. In its tenure of twenty one years, this trust has completed many Karnataka state and Central govt. projects with the above said objectives.

Since its inception, the trust has been working with the objective of identifying the basic infrastructure requirements of these people. Thanks to this trust, many SC/ST families are identified as landless, homeless and siteless in the Dakshina Kannada district.

Trust learnt that majority of the people belonging to SC/ST community were either unaware or unable to procure a caste certificate and in turn were left out of the govt. social welfare projects. In this regard, trust has been conducting many awareness programmes in the village level and guiding SC/ST community people to obtain caste certificates.

Trust also learnt that majority of the people belonging to SC/ST community were skill-less and engaged mostly in labour jobs, and therefore, remained poor financially. Thus, to improve the financial conditions of these people, trust has been organising many skill develepment and enterpreneurial development programmes.

Following are the main projects handled by the Trust in the past fifteen years, (1). Women self-employment Counselling centre (2). Spandana Family Counselling Centre (3). Enterprenuership development programme in ‘Udyogini’ scheme (4). Rural and Urban Sthree Shakthi self help group skill development training programme (5). Women empowerment progrmmes like Garments and Tailoring, Beautician, Artificial jewellary making, Fashion design, Ready-made garment, Candle making, Herbal phenyl preparation, Bakery item preparation training.

Our nation is facing unemployment problem and the Trust believes that self employment is only the way out of this situation. In this connection, Trust has started “Self Employment Counselling Centre” and has been guiding people from all the sections of the society irrespective of caste and religion. In this centre, people are are given training and awareness programmes to start self-employment jobs, financial & logistics management, loan facilities available form different govt. schemes.
