The ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu said “Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in giving creates love.”
Sponsor a Child program is founded on a holistic philosophy to span education, health, physical and cultural development of the child.
Since 2009, we have been providing education for children in grades 4-10 from underprivileged families in India and Nepal. Beneficiaries are from low-income families with parents who are maid-servants, day laborers, janitors, taxi drivers, roadside vendors and other low-wage professions.
The project that started in Bangalore (Karnataka), and, Hyderabad (Andhra Pradesh), is currently operating in several areas within India and Nepal.
A journey starts with a small leap. Sponsor A Child also started with the baby steps of a few committed volunteers.
In the year 2009, few volunteers of Sewa International decided to support the education of underprevileged students in India. They formed a team in the US, identified a few non-profits in India and supported the education of a few children.
Since inception, we have facilitated more than 6000 annual student sponsorships.
