Sewa Bharti’s visionary approach is to uplift the health, hunger, and education of the most vulnerable group of society with the help of people from a social service background and government sector with the pure service motive.
Veteran social worker Shri Balasaheb Devras founded Sewa Bharti on October 2, 1979. The first center of Sewa Bharti was inaugurated at E block, Jahangirpuri. In January 1981, it was duly registered under the Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860. A humble beginning was made when a ‘Balwadi’ was set up in E Block of Jahangirpuri. Soon the Sewa work multiplied in numbers and within one year 64 such centers were started. Many youngsters and adults were fascinated by the selfless work and they started contributing towards its expansion. The social work soon connected with the people.
A hostel for weaker sections of the society was started. Many students from lower strata of a society successfully pursued academic studies in the hostel. A mobile medical van was introduced to serve the medical needs of students, residents of Sawa Park as well as nearby areas. Professional courses in shorthand and typing were also introduced.
With the passage of time, the Sewa work expanded speedily. This selfless social service, with its right nature and intent, became the popular and talking point of the society. Considering the potential and impact of social work, the organization was named as ‘SEWA BHARTI’ and a constitution after detailed deliberations was framed to complete the legal formalities.
Currently, we have total beneficiaries of more than 3 lakh people and are running 306 educational projects, 194 social projects, 28 medical projects, 474 self-reliance projects. These projects have started from the beginning and are now running successfully.
