Seva Sahayog Foundation has been serving for over 10 years towards the development and welfare for the underprivileged section of the urban slum lives. We started our operation in the year 2005 as a Not-for-Profit company and are registered under Section 8 (Old Section 25B) of the companies act.
Seva Sahayog Foundation aims at engaging socially conscious corporates, groups and individuals, with NGOs of matching interest with a purpose to collectively add value to the society at large.
We observed that there are numerous NGOs who have been working at grass root level for the betterment of the underprivileged people but lack adequate resources in terms of technology, finance and manpower to take their work to the next level.
On the other hand, we observed there are corporates and individuals who have a noble purpose of contributing to the welfare of the society, but were not aware as to how to utilize their resources for the betterment of the society.
10 years of our journey
Our Story – The Beginning
When like-minded people come together with common aspirations great results can be achieved.
A regular family-get-together gave rise to a noble thought of devoting time for the welfare of the society. A sheer willingness to serve for uplifting people from urban slums gave birth to Seva Sahayog Foundation.
Our core team of volunteers also known as ‘Seva Sahayogies’ are corporates working in IT and other reputed corporate entities. Our Seva Sahayogies have passion to dedicate their time and service towards the wellbeing of the society. Individually, most of them have jointly worked with various NGOs at the grass root level towards development initiatives.
Today we have over 15,000 registered volunteers, adequate professional staff and well-equipped office centrally located in Pune city.
Bonding – The spirit of volunteerism
Our belief is that if we are working for the welfare of the society we cannot work in isolation. For us to make the difference and bring value to the community we ourselves must be well knitted. With this thought in mind for last 10 years every 1st Sunday of the month we have been coming together at Bal Shikshan Mandir, Pune from 9:30 am – 10:30 am to celebrate the spirit Seva Sahayogies.
It’s not just volunteers’ meet-up but a purposeful Seva Sahayog family time. Over the years, we have seen the children of Seva Sahayogis join us for the meet-up and various programs. This regular meet-up has created a special bond not just with the volunteers but their families who makes Seva Sahayog Family.
We have had instances where kids of our volunteers had proactively accompanied us to assemble school kits, during School Kit drive. Through this one can witness how powerfully the next generation has imbibed the spirit of community welfare in them.
