About the NGO
NMCT implements sustainable livelihood development program for remote tribes, care and support for the people and children infected/affected by HIV/AIDS, prevention of HIV/AIDS among industrial migrants, and childhood development through health and nutrition education. Around one thousand families infected by HIV/AIDS have been provided with care and support for treatment services, nutritional food supplements and health care activities in 8 blocks of Coimbatore district.
The health and nutrition education in Anamalai block covering school and community children, adolescents & women has impacted thousands of children, adolescents and women in practicing healthy lifestyle through regular nutritious food. The mission of the organisation is to have sustainable holistic development among the underserved.
During 1986-87 the founder of the organization was a student in the Bharathiar University doing studies on Ethnic Tribes and their traditional practices. The needs of the underserved community and desire to support them as a part of the society was his reason for joining the voluntary sector.
Mr. A. S. Sankaranayaranan, Director of NMCT, formerly a Professor at an Ayurvedic college, met tribal people during his research in the forest area. He found that the Tribes were selling their lands for meager amounts and so he decided to dissuade them by making them economically viable. NMCT also felt the necessity for empowering women and run programmes on childcare, health and hygiene for the needy.
In 2017, Native Medicare Charitable Trust was awarded the Credibility Assurance Team by the Credibility Assurance Team Certificate of Appreciation for Awesomeness and the Guide Star India by the Guide Star India Commitment to Transparency.
