About Us

Salem People Trust

Integrated development of children through education, awareness generation, life skills training, and healthcare and nutrition

Established in 2007, Salem People Trust predominantly focuses on securing the rights of children, and establishing them a safe and sustainable society to attain the life they deserve. Mrs. Jayam, the founder of this organization was herself the victim of caste indiscrimination, and other social evils that affected her childhood badly. Rooted in values of human dignity, and ethical treatment of fellow human beings, Salem People Trust has ensured that the children we support are educated, well-fed, and treated on par with children from upper caste communities. The holistic development of children required much more than what an organization can do, so we collaborate with CRY - Child Rights and You, and have supported many children in bringing their dreams to reality.

Our Programs

Prevention of Female Infanticide

There are lots of female infanticide cases in rural areas of Salem district. We spread awareness on prevention of sex-selective abortion by visiting each and every houses in our target villages. Our most effective way of doing it is through door-to-door campaign. We also follow-up with the people to ensure they have a better understanding of protecting girl babies.

Interventions for child labours

Our main objective is to rescue children from bonded labour system and help them have access to education and other facilities. Once we identify child labours, we notify it to the government and local authorities to rescue the children. For our commendable work in the field, we received High School with all basic amenities to help rescued bonded children have access to education.

Child rights

Children are deprived of exercising of their rights - mainly because they aren't aware of their rights. It is our aim to protect and propagate children's rights to children, their families, and other important stakeholders of society through rights awareness, grama sabha meetings, advocacy, and campaigns. We do this to ensure that children - especially girls - don't fall as a prey to child marriages, physical and sexual abuse etc.


Education shapes the future children and give them better access to livelihood opportunities. We help children to get access to quality education, provide counselling and motivate them to pursue their education through our Child Resource Centre (CRC). College-going students are supported in the process of receiving education too. We help enrolling them in courses they are interested in.

Our Impact

It is the small change that makes the biggest impact.
