Welcome to the website of The Fishermen Trust (TFT), a registered Charity which has been in existence since 2006. TFT is based in Bangalore, India, a City with a population of over 7.2 million people!
Many of the young people living in this vast city suffer from low self esteem and low aspirations. The Fishermen Trust (TFT) has been established to work with other agencies to Engage and Empower these young people and then Enable and Equip them to make better choices.
TFT is a Christian organisation and therefore believes that real change can only come when a young person connects with God.
