- Child Parliament in Vyara, Gujarat.
A Child Parliament was formed and inaugurated on 20th August 2017 in the target communities of SEESHA’s CAP Vyara project. A total of 183 children participated in the event and selected 12 “ministers” from among the child representatives of the six target villages through electoral voting.
The elected children will take part in meetings like gramsabha, monthly parents/village elders meetings, in their village and panchayat and also participate as members in district and taluka meetings as child representatives.
They will function as the voices of the peer groups, and through discussions, voice out on all their issues, ideas, opinions and presnet it before the Panchayat, as well as Taluka and District government officials.
We believe that this child parliament will help children understand the true meaning of democracy, and build them into responsible citizens of the country. They will become future leaders who bring about real changes in the communities by hearing the voice of the people. They will influence development in their communities, and in the nation as a whole.

- Business Start-up for Transwomen
Rejected by their own families and ostracised by society, transgender persons are usually unable to complete their education or find job opportunities. Thus, they are often pushed into beggary and sex work in order to make a living for themselves.
Taking an effort to change this scenario, SEESHA has helped 5 transwomen become self-employed by providing:
- A push cart, stove, vessels, and utensils for two transwomen to start their own tiffin centres
- Sets of sarees to help two transwomen begin saree sales businesses
- Cosmetic items and other necessities required for a trained transwoman to begin a beautician business

In India, every 4 in 10 senior citizens are facing abuse of some kind, most of it from their own family members. Day after day, many of them are forced out of the comfort of their own homes and into the streets.
SEESHA is reaching out to such senior citizens, helping them live worry-free retired lives, despite the aches of age, the pressures of poverty, and the despair of destitution.
