Community Service

UEF Charitable Trust


The United Economic Forum Charitable Trust is committed to the task of uplifting needy and deserving children to support and train them into becoming self-reliant and responsible members of the community.

The founding father, Alhaj Dr. B.S. Abdur Rahman, was keen on helping and serving the disadvantaged and weaker sections of society and sought a number of ways to help the needy especially homeless children. As a result the forum launched a unique movement of caring for homeless children as early as in 1987 by setting up children’s homes in various parts of Tamil Nadu. However, it was in 1994, in order to streamline this initiative of the forum that the UEF Charitable Trust was formally set up.

The UEF Charitable Trust administers and supports Four children’s homes for boys and girls in Tamil Nadu. The homes are periodically reviewed by a committee to ensure the provision of necessities such as food, clothing and education. The UEF Charitable Trust is registered and recognised by the government’s Income Tax department, thereby entitling the Trust to tax relief and exemptions under section 80-G of the Income Tax Act.
