Welcome to ASSIST FMA

‘ ASSIST’ is the Social Development Office for the Trichy Province of the Salesian Sisters. Due to the erection of a new province in Tamilnadu, the new Development Office emerged out of the existing Development Office – ARUWYE in Chennai to function independently catering its service to the 12 Districts in Tamilnadu.  ASSIST aspires to improve the living conditions of the poor and marginalized by adopting strategies through community initiative, participation, and sensitization. The organization engages itself with the marginalized and vulnerable groups of the society. Education is the prime area of focus for empowerment through the promotion of employability in order to enable the target group to contribute towards the mainstream development process.
