SevaChild has created an international alliance committed to developing new and expansive ways of helping India’s children where “an estimated 80 million of the world’s 143 million homeless children live.

Noble efforts by thousands of independent child aid organizations throughout India have not been enough to deal with the enormity of this problem, a problem made worse due to an almost total lack of communication between them.

Today’s education in the rural villages of India does not give children the practical knowledge and tools needed to improve their lives, nor does it help to expand their intellectual horizons.

Initiate educational programs that teach updated models based on Montessori principles, and disseminate information on modern technology and the ecological practices of permaculture and environmental awareness, in order to foster sustainability and prosperity while preserving valuable Indian traditions and culture.
Addressing basic needs
SevaChild has established itself as a reliable distribution channel for international charities that want to give their products and services to Indian children in need. This year SevaChild delivered a shipping container of 25,000 brand new clothing items donated by Gymboree, Sketchers Shoes, and Pottery Barn for Kids, and distributed them to over 10,000 children in rurual India. SevaChild has a combined distribution reach to over 100,000 children through our member NGOs.
