Welcome to Thirumalai Charity Trust

Welcome to Thirumalai Charity Trust

Thirumalai Charity Trust – TCT was founded on the belief – “Social responsibility of business is not optional, but obligatory”. TCT was created in 1970 to promote education, provide medical relief to the rural poor and, in general, reach out to people in dire need. 

TCT, well past its golden jubilee is proud to recall that its commitment and activities have grown…. touching many spheres of service – Community Health, Education, Women Empowerment, De-addiction, Disability and many more.


At TCT, we believe
  • Education is the most crucial element of a country’s progress
  • Volunteerism, women empowerment and community ownership of programmes are essential for meaningful development
  • Healthcare is a shared responsibility between the healthcare provider, patient, family and community and a holistic approach is necessary to enable the right care and treatment for the patient.
