Seva Mandir

Seva Mandir's mission is to make real the idea of society consisting of free and equal citizens who are able to come together and solve the problems that affect them in their particular contexts. The commitment is to work for a paradigm of development and governance that is democratic and polyarchic. Seva Mandir seeks to institutionalise the idea that development and governance is not only to be left to the State and its formal bodies like the legislature and the bureaucracy, but that citizens and their associations should engage separately and jointly with the State.

Madhav and his journey with education

Children at our Non Formal Education Centre
Children at our Non Formal Education Centre

Dear Friends,

I remember working on the fields with my father; the school was so far that I could hardly ever attend it. But now I go to the school every day. I enjoy reading my books especially the stories.” This is Madhav’s experience who is a student of our Non Formal Education Center.

Like Madhav you have touched upon the lives of hundreds of children who have been deprived of education. You bring the light of education to the lives of children in hamlets of southern Rajasthan. And your support is much needed in their lives. From your donations we have been able to provide books, stationary and other infrastructure to support education. But a lot more is needed.

Wondering how you can help us?

Global Giving is having its little by little match making challenge from the dawn of 26th October 2015.  Every contribution made by you exceeding £50 will be partly matched by Global Giving Family and together the amount will go to ease the access of education to children.

We look forward to your benevolent gesture in making a dream come true.  For any query, feel free to write to me at atul.lekhra@sevamandir.org

Regards,

Atul Lekhra

Lalit's quest with Life

Lalit with his mother
Lalit with his mother

Lalit, the baby in this picture wasn’t always as happy as he looks. Just sometime after his second month birthday, Lalit started suffering from swollen tummy. The baby’s cries would echo across the village each evening. On the Balsakhi’s visit to the village, she was told about Lalit’s condition and soon the necessary treatments were catered to the child. This was indeed possible because of your support to our initiative of providing medications to places where one can’t imagine finding a doctor.

Lalit’s tale is just one of many. There are hundreds of children waiting to be immunized each month.  And to continue this, we are indeed in need of your assistance.

Lentils for Life and Livelihood

One of the Farmers at Dal Mill
One of the Farmers at Dal Mill

We are happy to tell you that with your continued assistance and support, we have moved into the fifth year of running the Dal Mill or the Lentils processing unit.

I was on a verge of quiting farming for it only gave me loss.. The dal mill gave farming a new vision” – A farmer in Kotra, Udaipur

India is one of the largest exporters of Lentils, but it is an unfortunate truth that the cultivators of Lentils live a life of drudgery. They seldom got profits for their produce and were often subjected to exploitation. With the onset of the Lentils processing unit, the farmers are able to draw returns of their labor and produce in a fair mechanism.We look forward to your support in running this mill so that the farmers eliminate drudgery from their lives.
