Sree Narayana Trust, also known as the SN Trust , has been an educational organisation in the Indian state of Kerala since 1952. The headquarters of Sree Narayana Trust is in Kollam city.[1] It is named after Sree Narayana Guru. The institutions operated by the Trust follow his footsteps, trying to create strength through organisation and to seek liberation through education. The Trust aims to realize the high ideals of its namesake, who professed the welfare of all without any discrimination on the basis of caste, creed or religion. It was formed by a former Chief Minister of Kerala, R. Sankar,[2] 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 sections of society. Today, the Trust runs numerous educational institutions and hospitals.[3]
