Who we are

IDEAL Trust is a registered non-profit organisation under the Indian Trust Act, 1881, and NGO Darpan of the Government of India. We focus on implementing programs aligned with Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 17, including poverty alleviation, quality education, and gender equality.

Currently, our work is concentrated in Srimushnam, a backward district in Cuddalore classified as a multi-hazard prone area. Here, we support a government primary school to enhance the quality of education for children. Additionally, we run a life skills centre that equips children with various essential skills recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Our work and its impact

IDEAL Trust is dedicated to empowering children in Srimushnam, Cuddalore, through initiatives aligned with Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 17. Our focus areas include:

  1. Rural Educational Development Program: Enhancing the quality of education for children in rural communities.
  2. Skill Training Programs for Rural Children: Providing essential life skills recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) to prepare children for their futures.
  3. Sponsorship Program for Children in Vulnerable Families: Supporting 11 children with family-based care and necessary resources to help them thrive.

Each of our programs includes well-structured monitoring and evaluation systems to ensure effectiveness and track impact. Additionally, we run a library in Srimushnam, offering a space for children from nearby schools and the community to read and learn together.

How we will utilise these books

Our library in Srimushnam boasts a collection of 120 books, fostering a love of reading among children. They regularly delve into these stories, then share their experiences and write book reviews to reflect on their learnings, with guidance from IDEAL Trust. We believe that books and stories empower rural children to live their best lives.

In addition to our collection, we incorporate stories by Pratham Books on the Story Weaver website, offering a total of 470 engaging options for children. We encourage them to borrow books and track their reading progress, recording the number of books read and other relevant data that helps us analyse reading patterns in rural areas. To further ignite their passion for reading, we conduct regular read-aloud sessions, encouraging deeper reflection and application of the lessons learned in real life.

Your contribution will help us procure joyful books by Pratham Books which will be added to the library helping ignite the passion for reading.
