Sevalaya, a registered charitable Trust functioning since 1988, is inspired by the life and teachings of Mahakavi Bharathiyar who declared that educating one poor child is the most meritorious charity; Swami Vivekananda who urged upon his followers to feed the poor rather than spending on rituals; and Mahatma Gandhi who believed that the Progress of India depended on that of its villages.
With these 3 core Principles as the basis, Bharathi Unit of Sevalaya focuses on providing free education to the rural, underprivileged children; Vivekananda Unit takes care of destitute children and seniors Gandhi Unit focuses on rural development activities.

What do I plan to do with the funds?
We request you to support the children with the following:
Education Sponsorship Project:
Annual sponsorship per child is estimated at Rs.8000/- for which details are given below. We can set up endowments for the Education sponsorship for children and the endowment amount per child would be Rs. 1,00,000/- This would help us in supporting the child with education sponsor, year on year, from the interest we receive from the endowment amount.
The details of the Annual Sponsorship of Rs.8000/- per child are as follows:
Uniforms 2 sets 1300
Per capita teachers’ salary 5300
Educational aids 700
Notebooks, stationery etc. 700
Further, you may note that these rates were arrived at over a decade ago and purposely we have left them unrevised as more donors could afford to participate. In effect, the amount spent on each child is higher for the following reasons:
Conducting educational tours
Participation in sport activities
Participation in inter-school competitions and extra-curricular activities
Upkeep of facilities / infra-structure
