I volunteer for Lady Fatimah Trust, UK and have been associated with them for past little over 15 years now. We have served in many areas including Housing projects, education, Medical & Healthcare, Micro finance etc; but lately with the sad demise of the Founder Trustee and to bring focus to build the next generation, we have been concentrating all our energies on Education in India. Though, education is a very loosely used term and anyone going to school and trust providing assistance to them call “support for education”, we have slightly differentiated the same in in our Policy for LFT in India.  Therefore, we have created some bare minimum eligibility criteria to provide support, which is yielding a high quality result.
