About the Organization

Blossom Trust was founded in 1993 as a grassroots NGO with an initial focus on underprivileged women’s social and economic empowerment and a safe and nurturing space for vulnerable children living in Virudhunagar, Tamil Nadu. Over time, our work has broadened into supporting those living with HIV/AIDS, TB and diabetes and building community capacity in disadvantaged areas of Tamil Nadu while remaining true to our original objective of female empowerment

​We aim to create a strong foundation for sustainable community ownership and national coalitions for marginalized individuals. We aim to achieve this through building community-based institutions, promoting community awareness, and supporting community development through grassroots initiatives. In responding to the needs of our beneficiaries, Blossom Trust works in various domains ranging from economic empowerment and microfinance, and environmentally focused agriculture, to health advocacy and forums supporting transgender communities and individuals infected/affected by HIV/AIDs and TB.
