About us

Chellampatti Block is categorized under Usilampatti Taluk of Madurai District; Tamilnadu, India is severely affected by public revelation of female infanticide and atrocious treatment on women and girl children. They were chained in all respects. When there was no organization to work with these marginalized women at grass root level, Women’s Emancipation and Development Trust (WED Trust) was founded in 1992 to liberate these women and girl children in the same vicinity with the aim of alleviating gender difference and empowering them socially, economically, culturally and politically.

WED Trust is a registered Trust under Indian Trust Act. The trust is recognized by the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) and Income Tax Act of India. WED Trust believes in participatory approach in its entire programs. The Trust has a 5 member Board of Trustees of which 4 are women who meets twice a year to appraise the progress of its activities.
