About Our Trust
Established in 1989, the SUMAN RAMESH TULSIANI CHARITABLE TRUST is a brainchild of now octogenarian couple Smt. Suman Tulsiani and her entrepreneur husband Shri Ramesh Tulsiani. For them it is said, "You can find all kinds of great people in Society but it is very rare to find a sincere donor who donates without expectations."
The Trust is dedicated to help and enrich people’s lives by providing financial assistance for Education, Healthcare, Culture and Welfare. Numerous projects and activities conducted under these four heads over the past nearly three decades have helped hundreds and thousands of students, patients, and the likes to overcome dire circumstances and avail an opportunity to rebuild their lives and dream again.
