The trust has been operating for about 15 years in Hyderabad and serving the community especially the weaker and marginalized sections by providing free education and vocational training in the field of journalism, computers, tailoring, embroidery and many other fields of livelihood generations. In furtherance of these objectives and to reach out to these communities, particularly those who are poor, literally challenged and socially and culturally underprivileged, the CRS proposed by the Abid Ali Khan Educational Trust aims to address issues that concern the community through participatory programmes, and improve the quality of life in general.
