Our Story

Padala Charitable Trust (PCT) is a non-profit, non-government organization founded and registered in 2002. PCT works in the fields of advocacy and operations to reach out to the marginalized with no bar on their caste, religion or gender. Our Educational projects involve providing scholarships to meritorious students in need, advocacy around girl child safety, menstrual health, child sexual abuse and female empowerment, career guidance and personality development at schools for the under- privileged. We select orphans and semi orphans from impoverished backgrounds and take care of their educational and personal needs. Focusing on community growth is one more step we are taking towards village-cluster development. PCT strives to constantly reinvent its projects and practices to foster socio- economic development of the deprived.
