Magodu Charitable Trust (MCT), is a non-profit education initiative, focusing on the development and empowerment of unprivileged children by providing knowledge, skills and resources necessary to make them self-reliant, irrespective of their social or economic status.
Through this effort, we are committed in raising the level of education and literacy rate in the rural areas and help disadvantaged children realise their full potential, along with economic and social empowerment.

As a pilot project, we are focusing on the unprivileged children in a remote village called “Magodu” located in Sira Taluk, Tumkur district, Karnataka, India.
WE ARE HELPING HANDS
We are helping the children of Magodu in fulfilling their dreams.
Our mission is to equip unprivileged children from rural areas to go beyond literacy and rudimentary skills with specified knowledge, skills and values, enabling them in becoming good human beings, who are productive, socially responsible and are able to achieve excellence in what they do.
A village where all the children, irrespective of their social and economic status, are equipped with all required skills, Values, Knowledge & resources, so as to become self-reliant and, lead a successful & dignified life.
Magodu Charitable Trust started its successful journey on June 2018 aiming to provide healthy environment for the education by utilising each rupee from the donations received thus providing complete transparency to the society.
What is the motive behind the start of this trust?
We donated money often to a few NGOs and also to charitable organisations during such events. On a recent trip to a village named Magodu, where we grew-up and spent most of our summer vacations, we found that many children were out of reach of the basic things required to gather knowledge such as,
– bags and stationaries
– tuitions and information on entrance exams
– access to better books and knowledge
– latest technologies
– write & speak english needed to compete with urban students
– involvement in sports due to lack of equipment
– healthy living and many more
After witnessing these incidents, we were able to realise that the children who are much talented and are not able to make use of their complete potential, due to the lack of support either financially or technically. Their dreams and potential can be fulfilled with the right support and guidance, which can be provided for when people come together for a cause.
Hence, we felt the passion or motivation to take an initiative towards the betterment of these young minds, who would be the future shapers of the country and the world, and as a result the initiation of the trust, a step towards a better future.
As an initiation, we have decided to begin from our village, establish a curriculum and secure the future of these bright young minds before expansion to more such villages and children who are in need of a helping hand to guide them through towards a goal.
