Sree Narayana Trusts was formed in 1952; Shri. R. Sankar was the first General Secretary of the S.N Trusts. Under his stewardship, S.N Trusts, named after Narayana Guru, functioned effectively and efficiently. The main intention behind the formation of S.N Trusts is to manage the educational institutions under S.N.D.P Yogam. The institutions operated by the Trust follow their spiritual guide's footsteps, trying to create strength through organisation and to seek liberation through education. The Trust aims to realize the high ideals of its namesake, who professed the welfare of all without any discrimination on the basis of caste, creed or religion. It was formed by the former Chief Minister of Kerala, Shri. R. Sankar in 1952 to manage Sree Narayana College, Kollam. Later, educational institutions were started in other parts of Kerala for the upliftment of the socially and educationally backward strata of society. Today, the Trust runs numerous educational institutions and hospitals.
