NGO Profile :
Sevalaya was founded in 1988, on the basis of the motto, Love All, Serve All. Sevalaya's vision is to serve the rural poor and transform them for an equitable, happy and fulfilled society with an improved quality of life. Sevalaya serves around 33 villages in and around the remote Kasuva village near Tiruninravur in Tamil Nadu. All services are rendered absolutely free of any charges, without any discrimination based on caste, creed, religion or gender.

Sevalaya's services focus on:

1. Education

The Mahakavi Bharathiyar Higher Secondary School is a school with classes from Pre-KG up to 12th grade for poor children from the villages, which provides quality education free of cost.

Mahakavi Bharathiyar Community College, provides skill training to school dropout youth from the villages and helps them get jobs

The Swami Vivekananda library has over 25,000 volumes of books including works of Gandhi, Vivekananda and books on science, engineering etc. It is open to students of colleges and people in the surrounding villages, free of charges

2. Rural Development

Sevalaya has implemented organic farming where they use bio fertilizers for the enrichment of cow dung manure. Organic farming is taught to agricultural students.

In the campus at Kasuva, they segregate the waste and convert degradable waste into manure. The non-biodegradable waste is sent for treatment. They produce rich manure and reduce cost of cultivation. They use biogas instead of LPG.

Kottu Murasu is Sevalaya’s cultural organization where children visit villages every month and conduct events like dramas, dances etc., to create awareness about social issues.

80% of operations in Sevalaya’s Kasuva campus is powered by solar energy.

Mobile Medical Camps are conducted every day in 4 villages. Free medicines are given for the benefit of the residents.

3. Homes

Sevalaya runs the Swami Vivekananda Boys’ Home and Mother Teresa Girls Home for orphans and poor children which provide opportunities for skill development. Sevalaya invites experts from various professions to enlighten students about the various opportunities and courses they could pursue.

Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa Old Age Home was inaugurated in 2002. It is a home for the destitute and poor senior citizens.

 Mahatma Gandhi Free Medical Center provides medical facilities free-of-cost for people from the Children’s and Old Age Home and neighboring villages.
