RURAL WOMEN DEVELOPMENT TRUST is the registered nonprofit charity organization in Tharamanagalam, Salem District, Tamil Nadu. Dedicated members of the Dalit Arunthathiyar community started the organization in 2000, and in 2005 it achieved registration under The Trust Registration Act of India. It has a central office in Tharamangalam, and conducts ongoing projects in rural remote villages throughout western Salem District. The organization is led primarily by local women—three of the five board members are women. We are working for women and children education and Empowerment. The primary focus of the organization is the rescue and rehabilitation of Dalit Arunthathiya debt-bonded laborers, an exploited social class that is often treated as slaves.
