About Us

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.

We advocate girl child safety, socio- economic upliftment of marginalized, menstrual health, female empowerment and fight against child sexual abuse. PCT strives to constantly reinvent its projects and practices to foster socio- economic development of the deprived.

Focusing on community growth is a step we are taking towards village-cluster development. Our Educational projects include providing scholarships to meritorious students in need. We select orphans and semi orphans from impoverished backgrounds and take care of their educational and personal needs.

It is our motto to strengthen government-run schools and colleges. We strive to improve their educational standards, awareness on safety and practical skills. We achieve this by introducing these children to value education, career guidance and personality development.

Our activity based approach leaves a lifetime of memories. To accomplish this feat, we use audio- visual aids and ensure our discourses are participatory. Our team loves upgrading to maximize our impact and is on a constant learning curve. Every time we hold a session, we design it to leave an everlasting impression on our listeners.

Thousands of students and benefactors give oral and written testimonials on how we have touched their lives. We feel immensely grateful for all the live stories we get to be a part of. Each and every person in our team is empathetic towards our benefactors and their needs.

Our impact is our legacy.

Vision

One day every child irrespective of caste, religion, gender in this nation will have equal right to survival, protection, development and participate in nation building.
