┬áVST was formed to support work that Dora Scarlett founded and inspired. She opened her clinic near Aundipatty in Theni District in 1962 and several of those who worked with her – local people and volunteers from across the world – went on to start other organisations, including VST and two of its partner bodies in Theni District, Arogya Agam and Vasandham.
