Sponsor a Child program is founded on a holistic philosophy to span education, health, physical and cultural development of the child. Since 2009, we have been providing education for children in grades 4-10 from underprivileged families in India. Beneficiaries are from low-income families with parents who are maid-servants, day laborers, janitors, taxi drivers, and roadside vendors. The project that started in Bangalore (Karnataka), and, Hyderabad (Andhra Pradesh), is currently operating in tribal areas of Chamarajanagar, and, Uttara Kannada (in Karnataka), and also in Salem, Tamil Nadu. Since inception, we have served more than 3,400 children.

Bhutanese Empowerment

Sewa International has taken up a nationwide project to help these Bhutanese families.

Since 2008, refugees from Bhutan were provided asylum by the US Government and settled in various parts of the US. Beyond learning to make a living in the US, Bhutanese now numbering nearly 80,000 have to adjust to the cold weather, uprooting of traditional familial and societal structures, cultural isolation, etiquettes, language, children’s education, family issues (marriage, birth, death, conflict resolution, etc.), women’s health, and an insurmountable aspect for the poor in the US - transportation. Sewa International has been working to settle the refugees down from California to New York, from Chicago to Houston and has reached 48,000 refugees through its service.

Though many of the refugees are educated and can speak English, many of them have remained unemployed. And because agency support and government aid are not available to them for an extended period of time, the assistance of Sewa International is quickly becoming a lifeline for many of these families. Current programs of Sewa to empower the Bhutanese immigrants include education and tuition services, leadership programs for the youth, women empowerment, job assistance and emergency distress assistance.

Project Category: International Development

Education is the primary tool to uplift the underprivileged section and integrate with the mainstream. Education will also determine their prosperity, success and security in life. For the tribal community education is more important because that will help them to know their rights and preserve their heritage in their way.
