The Centres will be blessed with experienced surgical hands and competent supporting medical staff to take care of all medical procedures and facilities. The prominent epicentres of this noble project will be in the cities of Bangalore , Siliguri, Ludhiana and Mumbai.

- and Mandi Ahmedgarh as a part of our community outreach programme.
Each of these centres will be located within 40 km radius of the parent Institution, each equipped to cater to about hundred thousand people.

A hand that rocks the cradle rules the world… we believe gender equality is critical to our shared goals of prosperity, stability, and peace, and investing in women and girls worldwide is critical in shaping up a happier and a better world. Globally, women and girls are disproportionately affected by poverty and discrimination. Women often end up in insecure, low-wage jobs, and have limited access to the educational resources and financial tools they need to succeed. Adolescent girls in developing countries face particular challenges, including poorer educational outcomes and heavy gender bias. The trust plans to change this in its own way for the betterment of society. We plan to work dedicatedly in the field of women empowerment in the various parts of Asia, whereby women from modest and underprivileged backgrounds would be provided with computer education and a respectable opportunity of livelihood. We also plan to set up women empowerment centres whereby women would be provided with education, training in sewing, tailoring etc. This would equip them with a skill to improve their lives without having to step out of their homes.
