30 years is normally seen as one generation. So Sevalaya is stepping into second generation now. From being known as a Kasuva village centric organisation, Sevalaya has now expended well into Chennai, Thiruvallur, Kancheepuram, Thanjavur and Trichydistricts and started initial moves in Tirunelveli district and Puducherry.
The organisation is professionally managed and is governed by a Board of Trustees with a deep commitment to social development, drawn from varied backgrounds. An advisory committee, consisting of people who have experience in various fields, share their experience and skills with the trustees and employees of Sevalaya, on a regular basis. Sevalaya draws its inspiration from Mahatma Gandhi, Swami Vivekananda and Mahakavi Subramania Bharathiyar. Sevalaya’s Vision is based the following three mantras:
We currently serve 40 villages in and around Kasuva village which once had 100% child labour. Through a quarter century of operations covering education, shelter for destitute and rural uplift, these villages have reached 100% school enrollment, as part of the ongoing transformation. All our services are rendered absolutely free of any charges, without any discrimination based on caste, creed, religion or gender. “Love all serve all” is our slogan.
