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 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 of 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 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.
The Society was formed with the noble vision by a group of like-minded people from social service background and government sector with pure service motive. The aim of the organization is to spread education by setting up schools and libraries along with providing training on soft skills to harbor prosperity among fellow beings & building awareness on the social issues impacting the community and nation.
We also commit to impart skill training to the youth, both male and female. We tend to assist elderly and destitute in the community as well. All the members are either retired or serving in the government sector or associated with the government with a very clear intention to contribute with their rich experiences.
The mission of the society is to create awareness in the country and make all stakeholders in the society conscious about various socio-economic, cultural, educational, environmental, health related issues, quick and effective post disaster responses, schemes and program launched by the Ministries, Departments, Regulatory Bodies and Authorities under the Government of India.
