Our Founder, Ramana
Our founder Ramana, along with her beautiful family Anand, Janu, Sachi, Eesha and Suresh formed the Shiva Trust Charity. They started the charity in 2012 so they could continue their charitable work in society which had originally begun in 2001; when they privately funded a Homeless Project in Manchester City Centre, along with a Children’s Project close to the City Centre in Hulme. The projects grew so big that they could no longer afford to fund it privately, and so there development of the formal registered charity work began.
Ramana, and her family are Hindus. They named their Charity Shiva Trust after their chosen God, Lord Shiva. All the work they do, they dedicate in Service to Lord Shiva.
Shiva is one of the three main Gods of Hinduism. He is the Patron of Meditation the Arts and Yoga. He asks all who love and worship him to Serve the Poor and the Needy. Hence, the dedication and tirelessness of Ramana, and her family to help those less fortunate than themselves, those who are suffering or in need.
Shiva supports all regardless of faith or belief in the quest for the attainment of Self realisation.
