About the Organization

Sewa International began as a movement  in 1993 to engage the Indian Diaspora(NRI) worldwide.

The movement has spread its wings worldwide to more than 25 countries now.

In India, Sewa International was established in 1997 as a registered non-profit trust, based on the Indian ethos of ‘Service before Self’ and “World is One Family”. Since its inception, Sewa International is relentlessly serving humanity in distress irrespective of caste, creed, color, religion, race or region.
