Featured Project


Children living below the poverty line in India do not grow up in favourable conditions. Like plants that struggle to grow among crags and crevices, they grow up in challenging situations, facing hurt and experiencing a sense of loss very early in life.

At SEESHA, we recognise the worth of every child. That is why, through a wide range of development projects, we reach out to children in need and constantly strive to fulfil their most pressing needs for the present, while also working towards ensuring that they have a secure future.

As part of our annual initiative for children like them, we are getting ready to provide new clothes to 100000 of them this year. Through the gift of new clothes, we will be fulfilling one of their most basic physical and socio-emotional needs. With a small contribution of Rs. 500, you can become a part of this mission and add colours and smiles to the life of a child.

Because a happy childhood is as important as a secure future!

SEESHA Updates

  • Training for Transformation

In a truly unique initiative, SEESHA is partnering with ADGP Dr. C. Sylendra Babu (IPS) of the Prison Department to train inmates of the Puzhal Central Prison in four-wheeler driving. With this pioneering project, SEESHA has introduced driving as part of the prison rehabilitation programme for the very first time in India.

We have received an overwhelming response, with nearly 80 enrolments on the opening day of the project. Through this training, prison inmates will be equipped with the skill for self-employment, to sustain themselves and support their families through respectable means after their sentence. Over 300 prisoners are expected to be trained annually through this initiative.

  • Reaching Out to Provide Relief

Torrential rains and flooding threw normal life out of gear for thousands of families in several parts of North India during the month of August 2017. As they struggled to get back on their feet, SEESHA reached out to provide relief to those worst affected in the natural disaster.

Under challenging conditions, and in consultation with local government authorities, SEESHA’s relief teams distributed relief kits containing dry rations, basic toiletries, mosquito nets and tarpaulin sheets to help sustain more than 500 families in the Azhamnagar Block of Bihar and the fisherman communities of Mumbai. School kits were also distributed among children who lost their study materials to the waters.
