The Friends of Seva Mandir UK support Seva Mandir, a world-renowned NGO in India, which works to improve the lives of half a million of the world’s poorest people.
Seva Mandir makes a difference. Every year, through its work:
Thousands of children receive the schooling that enables them to lift themselves out of grinding poverty
Thousands of children are helped to avoid or recover from life-threatening malnutrition
Thousands of women are empowered to take control of their own lives
Thousands of rural families are helped to improve their land and their farming methods, thereby increasing their meagre incomes
Thousands of poor households take responsibility for their own community
