Seva Sadan Society (Seva Sadan) was founded for the care, education and overall development and empowerment of underprivileged girls and women in Mumbai. The institution provides shelter, education, vocational training and employment opportunities to make the girls and women self-sufficient and lead dignified lives.

Their programmes include the following:

  • Orphanage/Home:  The Home accommodates approximately 100 girls and women from the age group of eight to ninety years and provides them with free or low cost accommodation. It takes care of the emotional, social, educational, medical and nutritional needs of the girls and women to ensure healthy all-round development. Admission to the Home is given irrespective of caste, creed or religion. The activities undertaken by the Home include assigning jobs to inmates and providing remuneration, providing nutritious and well balanced meals, medical aid by reputed doctors of Jaslok Hospital, providing counselling, extra tutorials, yoga classes, and regular field trips.
  • Pre-Primary School:  The society runs two Marathi-medium schools at the Junior and Senior Kindergarten levels. English teaching and social and cultural activities are conducted every year for the children. In 2008, an English medium school was set up which has grown into a full-fledged primary school with three classes in 2011.
  • Primary School:  Their Primary School is a Marathi medium institution that caters to students from standard I to IV and is recognized by the local government authority, the Brihanmumbai Mahanagarpalika. The success of the Pre-Primary English medium classes resulted in the establishment of the first standard of their Primary School in 2011. Various activities such as judo classes, speech and drama classes, yoga classes and music and dance classes are conducted for the students. The School is equipped with a well-stocked library to encourage students to read. A nutritious meal is provided to the students and regular health checkups are conducted to ensure all round development. The total student strength is around 300.
  • High School:  The High School is aided by the Education Department of the Maharashtra Government. The School provides education only to girl children and has classes from standard V to X. The School is Marathi medium, but one division for each year is partly taught in English. Various activities such as sports, basic computer education, art and craft, career guidance etc. are conducted. The student strength is around 550.
  • Teachers Training College:  The College offers a two-year Government-recognized diploma in Primary School Teaching. It imparts education with practical training to girls.
  • Community involvement:  Seva Sadan conducts regular parent- teacher meetings, where parents are encouraged to take an active role in the education and overall growth of their children. Vocational training is offered to women, particularly to the mothers of the students to make them economically independent.
  • Vocational courses:  Vocational courses such as tailoring and embroidery, basic beauty and hair cutting course, mehendi course etc. are run under the guidance of qualified experts. An in-house training programme in Hospitality and Cookery is provided to the girls to enable them to get suitable job opportunities. Regular English conversational classes are held for the girls of the Home and School.
  • Self Sufficiency Projects:  ‘By The Way’ and ‘Aahaar’ are two restaurants run by the Society to promote the motto of self-sufficiency. Gift articles like artistic gift bags, notepads, wine bags etc. are made by the girls of the Home under the guidance of qualified and experienced teachers.
  • Other classes:  Vacation classes such as Gymnastics, Yoga, English conversation/Grooming, Crochet, Arts and Craft are conducted for ex-Seva Sadan students and the girls of the Home and School to provide educative, vocational and leisure activities to enable them to expand their horizons.
