Sree Narayana Trust

Sri Narayana Guru : Spiritual Guru, One of the greatest Social reformers in India

Sree Narayana Trust, also known as the Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana (SNDP), has been an educational organisation in the R. Sankar, in 1952 to manage the Sree Narayana College, Kollam. Later, educational institutions were started in other parts of Kerala for the upliftment of the socially- and educationally-backward strata of society. At present there are over fifty educational institutions and four hospitals.

Schools and colleges

SNDP founded schools and colleges in the independent India. Previously the only private colleges were those managed by the church. The movement started with Sree Narayana College in Kollam. Many educational institutions were started under leadership of SNDP yogam. But soon it became quite difficult to maintain many such institutions by the yogam whose main objective was prophesy of Narayana Guru's vision among the masses. Under such circumstances, under the leadership of Sankar, a former chief minister of Kerala, the Sree Narayana Trust was started.
