Enhancing underprivileged communities through education, skill training, livelihood opportunities, environmental programmes, and healthcare services

About Us

Gramium Trust

Gramium Trust has been working towards improving the lives, livelihoods and living standard of people through Education, Empowerment, and Environmental programmes.

We work towards holistic development of children by providing education, life skills training, health care, nutritional supplement, food and shelter facilities for the underprivileged children. We run a residential school and free tuition centres in Kulithalai ensuring school dropout children are reintegrated back to the school, eliminating illiteracy among disadvantaged children. Gramium has been an approved as Mathi NGO under Mahalir Thittam of Tamilnadu Corporation for Development of Women, Government of Tamilnadu. We provide capacity building training, credit linkages to SHGs for livelihood empowerment. Youth and handicraft artisans are provided with skill development training and other welfare measures to be self-sufficient. We implement water and sanitation activities in the municipalities of Namakkal District, and natural resource management programmes to improve the productivity and living of farming communities.

Our Programs

Children's education

Our aim to make education accessible to all - for underprivileged children living both in rural and urban areas. With the support of Government of Tamilnadu under SSA, we built a Residential School in Kulithalai to provide education, accommodation, free learning materials for school dropout children. We also run free tuition centres to improve their knowledge, communication and computer skills. Many 10th std students are persuaded to puruse higher education.


To improve the sustainable livelihood of the farming communities and women in rural areas, we implement watershed management programme covering 6200 hectares in Karur district. In addition to that, Gramium has experience in the field of Water & Sanitation and we construct household toilets in the rural and urban areas of Karur District and implemented IEC activities on sanitation in the municipalities of Namakkal District.

Women empowerment

Gramium has been an approved as Mathi NGO under Mahalir Thittam of Tamilnadu Corporation for Development of Women, Govt. of Tamilnadu. We form SHGs in Kulithalai and Krishnapuram blocks of Karur District, and provide capacity building training to SHGs for livelihood empowerment. We also collaborate with various Financial agencies for providing credit linkage to the Self Help Groups for the Income Generation activities.


In addition to providing care and support for healthy children, we have also shifted our focus towards helping children affected with HIV/AIDS. Their health was at stake due to lack of supplementary food and proper nourishment. We provide counselling, healthcare support and care for the children affected with HIV/AIDS.

Our Impact

It is the small change that makes the biggest impact.
