Sevasadan - Girls Matter

Girls Matter

 
Empowering Women

In the traditionally male-dominated Indian society, women from impoverished communities have long suffered gender discrimination, oppression, and abuse. The girl child is often neglected and deprived of a normal childhood, including her right to education and a life of equal opportunity.

Seva Sadan Society in Mumbai has been a sanctuary for such marginalised girls for over a century. We continue to protect, nurture, and empower them with education, skills and opportunities not only to improve their own lives, but also change lives of their families and impact communities.

Our mission is to provide a nurturing and secure environment for vulnerable, underprivileged girls, educate them, enable them to achieve their potential, be self-reliant, and break the cycle of poverty and social deprivation.

Home for Girls

Our Residential Home shelters nearly 100 underprivileged girls between the ages of 6 to 18. Most of them do not have basic accommodation and come from distressed backgrounds and unsafe neighbourhoods. Many carry the trauma of having been victims or witness to violence. We care for them in a safe and compassionate environment and provide them with physical and emotional security and a high standard of education.

English Education

In 2008, our Centenary Year, we launched our first co-educational Pre-Primary and Primary English School for low-income children who are first-generation English learners. The school started with just 9 students in Lower Kindergarten. Today, we have more than 190 students and offer classes up to Grade 7. Our goal is to add a class every year until we are a full-fledged Secondary School up to Grade 10 SSC Level.

Beyond Academics

A balanced curriculum of academic learning and enrichment activities engages and challenges the girls. Exposure to art, music, dance, chess, yoga, self-defence, and sports enables them to develop varied interests and discover their latent talents.

Skill Development

We offer several courses for vocational training in market-relevant skills to propel young women of marginal means towards economic independence and self-sufficiency. Many of our students have completed their training and found good jobs or have started their own small businesses, attaining empowerment through self-reliance.
