Love All, Serve All
  • Although people in villages have understood the importance of education in order to get rid of poverty, due to less or no access to quality resources and fewer committed teachers, they cannot afford to provide basic education to their children. Thus rural areas remain underdeveloped. Sevalaya came into existence with an aim to transform such societies.
  • Programs: 1) Education: Sevalaya runs a school for students till grade 12. The school has consistently been producing 100% results in 10th Standard and 12th Standard state exams. Their community college provides skill training to the youth and helps make them self-sufficient. 2) Rural development: The NGO has implemented organic farming at their campuses. 80% of operations in Sevalaya's Kasuva campus is powered by solar energy. Mobile medical camps provide free medical treatment and medicines in villages. 3) Shelter Homes: 2 homes are being run for orphaned and poor children under Sevalaya- one for boys and one for girls, and an old age home for destitute and abandoned senior citizens.
  • Outcome in 2018: Sevalaya's school has a strength of over 2,000 and has completely eradicated child labor in the villages nearby. The Community College has 654 students with the rate of job placement above 75%. Sevalaya provided medical assistance to 18,950 people.
