Welcome to the Friends of Seva Mandir UK website
Seva Mandir makes a difference. Every year, through its work:
- Thousands of children are immunised against debilitating and chronic diseases.
- Thousands of children get the schooling that enables them to lift themselves out of grinding poverty.
- Thousands of women benefit from safer childbirth, and learn practical ways to take control of their own lives.
- Thousands of poor households take responsibility for their own community.
We hope you can share our vision and help us to improve the lives of people in Rajasthan.
“Seva Mandir’s immunisation program is one of the most impressive we have ever evaluated, and probably the one that has saved most lives.”
Abhijit Banerjee & Esther Duflo, ‘Poor Economics’ (2011)
In March this year, we visited Udaipur to see, first hand Seva Mandir’s incredible work.
Our initial visit was to a school where over 50 children attend. While there were few resources available, each child showed an inordinate amount of pride in their work and a real hunger to learn. They were very keen to demonstrate their skills in reciting the English alphabet, doing sums on the blackboard and singing songs.
