Sri Selliah Memorial Trust is a non-profit Non Governmental Organization functioning since 1993 for the development of rural, tribal women and children. Sri Selliah was born in an ordinary family but rose to occupy a very prominent position in the International Labour Organization (ILO). He worked as Regional Advisor in the ILO, New Delhi on labour welfare and issues relating to the rural and plantation workers. His love for the rural and plantation workers was immense and he worked tirelessly for their welfare throughout his life. Hence this trust was formed in his name to carry on his work. Another important achievement in his life was the establishment of the Plantation Workers Industrial Institutes at Gudalur and Coonoor, in The Nilgiri District. Ms.Selvarani Rajaratnam daughter of Sri Selliah and an advocate, is the Managing Trustee of the trust.

Sri Selliah Memorial Trust is working in Trichy and Perambalur drought prone rural area. Most of the families in this area depend on daily wages and rain fed cultivation. Every year migration takes place to other districts for seasonal works. Because of this situation SSM Trust started to work in this area.


“Sri Selliah Memorial Trust is devoted to serving towards equality, employment and empowerment of socially and economically deprived section of the society, each and every individual has a role to play in strengthening and working towards reform in the society.”


“To eradicate poverty, empower the rural and women, ensure better living condition to native and migrant.”
