Sumruddhi Trust (Sumruddhi) was established with the aim of working towards poverty reduction. Sumruddhi's vision is to ensure equitable development and help the poor lift themselves out of the clutches of abject poverty so that they can be part of the rapid development that the country has made in the last few years. They hope that this will lead to a harmonious and healthy community that is caring and aware of its rights and duties under the Constitution.
