The Mother Teresa Charitable Trust began its multi-developmental activities in 2005 for the integral growth of the poor and abandoned people of India – especially rural, poor women, orphan children, handicapped children, and elderly people who have nobody to care for them.

The Mother Teresa Charitable Trust is a U.S. 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The Greater Kansas City Community Foundation helps support management of the funds for future utilization. A charitable trust in India has also been established. Donations are tax-deductible.
