The Emma Trust

Emma Trust HQ

Back in early 2014 the Emma Trust were successful in starting to rent a fairly large building in central Raichur. The building consists of a good sized room which is the IT centre, a bedroom, a dining room and kitchen and a central function area for events and classes. As well as computer lessons the Emma Trust also run sessions for other subjects to help children and young people with their studies at school or college. The HQ provides a perfect setting for courses, events or general fellowship for friends.

IT Centre

During 2013 Sam talked about his vision for an IT centre in central Raichur to fulfil his vision of teaching underprivileged young people essential computer skills to enable them to find their first job. The Emma Trust located the building in central Raichur and supplied the desks similar to the desks in the IT centre at Neerekshe. The IAF supplied the netbooks and the mice and in October 2014 Pete and Chris visited the Emma Trust to setup the new IT classroom. Since then the IT classroom has been very successful helping to educate young people and is such an important asset to the Emma Trust.
