VOICE Trust is a respected charity in Tamil Nadu, India that has been registered as a non-profit since 1985. We are a top-ranked NGO on Global Giving and have been awarded Guidestar India’s transparency key. Our mission is to empower the disadvantaged, including women, young people, people with disabilities, those devastated by natural disasters, and parentless or vulnerable children. Guided by a commitment to environmental sustainability, we pursue social justice, economic revitalization, and equal opportunity.

Our commitment to sustainability means promoting sustainable organic farming practices that produce more nutritious and abundant crops. This provides farmers with a reliable income that helps agribusinesses thrive and promotes healthy, happy families. In addition, sustainable farming is more climate-resilient; keeps pesticide toxins out of the air and water; reduces reliance on fossil fuels; and enhances biodiversity. The community wins and the planet wins.

Wherever possible, we work with collectives and activist groups such as Women’s Self Help Groups (SHGs), Farmer’s Forums, Youth Associations, Children’s Clubs, Disabled People’s Organizations, Human Rights Groups, and Unorganized Worker’s Associations. Empowering these self-help groups achieves effective grassroots change and promotes self-reliance.
