TFM Charitable Trust - Dharwad, Karnataka, India

Dear Friends

The Smt. Theresa Fernandes Memorial Charitable Trust (TFM Charitable Trust) is non-governmental organization. The Trust started in 1997 and it is registered under the Bombay Trust Act. Its aim is to work, with God's grace and dedication, for the welfare of the intellectually challenged, the elderly and the needy. Our achivements are the result of many caring hands joined to care for the helpless and hopeless.

This NGO started a Special School and Home for intellectualy challenged children named MAMTA SPECIAL SCHOOL in Dharwad (Karnataka) in 1997. This school is approved and recognized by the Government of Karnataka as a special education school.

MAMTA SPECIAL SCHOOL has its door wide open to children who are intellectually disadvantaged, no matter what their caste, colour or religion. Presently the school has 43 special children/adults in the age group of 6 to 26 years. The children/adults are drawn from lower middle class and middle class families. Special children cannot be independent threfore; they need careful transportation to get to school, so the transportation charges become an added burden to the parents.

MAMTA SPECIAL SCHOOL needs two (2) vehicles which will transport the children from different destinations to school at a subsidized rate. A Maruti OMNI - 8 seater will cost about Rs. 2,88,000/- which includes insurance, life time road tax and registration.

An individual/group of individuals/association could donate one or both the vehilces.

Experience the joy to reach out with a generous heart in making the special children realize their dreams and hopes. Freely give and share the joy of serving them.
