Our freedom fighters and the founders of our Constitution dreamed of an India where all her citizens enjoy freedom, liberty and a better life! Yet, many of our actions have not really made much of a difference to those suffering from poverty for decades. NGOs across India have been working tirelessly for the betterment of those left behind. This Republic Day, let us support them to create a more equal India.
We are pleased to shine the light on Sewa Bharat, founded in 1984 by Ela Bhatt (The Founder of Self-Employed Women's Association of India - SEWA), it is a national federation of SEWA organisations of women working in the informal economy to further informal women workers’ rights, livelihoods, financial independence, education, health and social security. SEWA Bharat is a GuideStar India Platinum Certified NGO.
"It is the women who are the leaders in change and without their participation poverty can never be removed." - Ela Bhatt, Founder, SEWA Bharat.
SEWA Bharat supports those who do not have a ration card, identification cards and are left out of the scope of government’s support system. SEWA Bharat routinely arranges upskilling workshops for its members. These skills range from digital capacity building to photography and such in order to support their livelihood.
