In the year 2009, a few volunteers of Sewa International decided to support the education of underprivileged students in India. Sewa formed a team in the US, identified a few non-profits in India and supported the education of a few children. The year 2015, witnessed the launch of a dedicated low-cost website for the donors to select the children and view the academic progress. Since inception, Sewa has facilitated more than 6756 annual student sponsorships.
Sponsoring a child is a personal way to show God’s love to a child in need. Since 2009, Sewa International has been providing education for children in grades 4th to 10th from underprivileged families in India and Nepal. Beneficiaries are orphans, semi-orphans, and from low-income families with parents who are maidservants, day laborers, janitors, taxi drivers, and roadside vendors.The project that started in Bangalore (Karnataka), and Hyderabad (Andhra Pradesh), is currently operating successfully in several areas in India and Nepal.
A learning center is a place where a student (beneficiary) to be supported resides and studies. A learning center can be a day school or residential school, or hostel for orphans/semi-orphans. Schools are further classified as government, charity aided or private school. Hostels are those predominantly run for charity.
Adopting Obali Vidyalaya learning center, Hanur Taluka which is located in Karnatakavery close to the state’s border with Tamil Nadu, is one of the goals for Sewa's Boston Chapter, for 2021. This school is being run by an ex-serviceman Shri Gangadhar Ji, who left his government job in India to join his father to run this school. This learning center has about 150 students, 70 boys and 80 girls.
Sewa's Boston chapter, believes that the community is going to come together, to adopt the 44 kids, from 4th to 9th standard, and provide them with the basic necessity of education.
