I am Subramania Siva, Managing Trustee, behind the promotion of this organization was in Government service and had contact with a lot of NGOs in the area as a part of my past service. As I found most of them not adhering to legal compliance and transparency in accounting, I thought of launching a role model NGO and thus it took the shape.
Service Initiative for Voluntary Action Trust (SIVA Trust) is a registered public charitable Trust started in April 1994 in Tirunelveli district by the founder, Smt. V.S. Savithri [Late]. Her husband, Mr. A.V.Sivaramaswami [Late], a freedom fighter hailing from Paramakudi in Ramanathapuram District was the initial Managing Trustee. The Trust has been working in the area of holistic development and has been serving the rural and semi-urban communities in Tirunelveli District and some of the villages have now
come under Tenkasi district, after bifurcation.

Our initial interventions were for the Dalit and poor sections of the community as they were unaware of their rights and entitlements. As we travelled further along on this journey, we encountered many deep-rooted problems in society that required immediate action and implementation. Our main objective is for serving all sections of the downtrodden society, the most deprived and marginalized communities, poor women and children of the rural and semi-urban areas as well as the hill tribes and persons with disability.
Subramania Shiva is the network champion (main point of contact) for Service Initiative for Voluntary Action Trust.
