The Sri Agathiar Sanmaarga Charitable Trust has been serving the poor and downtrodden in Thuraiyur, Trichy, Tamilnadu, India since 1989. The center, known as ”Omkarakudil”, has charity as its basis of spirituality.

These include providing food, water, clothing, medical assistance and education. The focus on charity here is mainly feeding the hungry poor people. Most of them are poor homeless, old aged and children from poor families. For the past two years the organization has also started a center at the foot of the Perumal Hill to cater for the poor in that area.
