Education to the underserved
We are raising funds to support the education of underprivileged students at Mahakavi Bharathiyar Higher Secondary School, a free school serving poor children in and around Kasuva village in Thiruvallur district in Tamil Nadu, India. The school renders its services free to all students regardless of their caste, creed, religion or gender. Before 1988, most of the children in these villages worked as child laborers. Since the school was established in 1988, it has gradually transformed these villages. The school has consistently reported close to 100% results in Std. X and Std. XII board exams.
Our goal for 2018-19 is to raise funds to support 400 students. The cost of complete educational aid per child is $250. This amount includes educational costs such as teachers salary, lab expenses and basic extracurricular activities support, in addition to basic needs such as uniforms, books and school supplies for students.
Project Thanjavur Old Age Home
Sevalaya USA is raising funds to support the procurement of medical instruments and furnitures for an old age home in Thanjavur district in India for homeless seniors. Last year we raised funds to support the construction of the home.
Help provide dignity of life to senior citizens, who have no one to support them.
We use these funds to help victims of natural disaster like wildfires, floods and earthquakes. We contact local authorities who are doing relief work and identify their needs and fundraise accordingly.
