Aims of the Trust

The East Sheen-Chengannur trust is a small registered charity which was set up in 1979 and officially registered in 1984 (the founder, Mrs Kay Mattin, previously lived in East Sheen in South West London - hence the name).

The aim of the Trust is to help the poor in Chengannur, Southern India; and elsewhere through sponsorships, gifts, grants to individuals, schools, and small organisations in need.

Where we differ from many larger charities is in our approach to donors and recipients. We maintain a personal approach to every type of aid and encourage personal contact between donors, their beneficiaries, the trustees and our project managers in India and Africa.
