Dispel Loneliness, Through Love
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.
The SEESHA Old Age Care Home in Karunya Nagar, Coimbatore is a warm and welcoming home, providing for the physical, emotional and psychological needs of senior citizens who have been abandoned by their own families.
Our Senior Citizen Outreach provides financial and psychosocial support to senior citizens living a life of poverty in urban poor and remote rural regions through our outreach projects.
How you can help:
- Support the needs of a destitute senior citizen – Rs. 250/- per day
- Contribute to the construction of an integrated retirement village for 300 senior citizens – Rs. 3700/- per sq. ft.
SEESHA designs and implements projects relevant to the needs of people from all sections of the society, irrespective of caste, creed, colour, gender or religion. Each of the projects function in their own unique ways to propel the journey towards holistic development, fuelled by indicators such as using education, health, environment and livelihood.The projects are set both in community as well as institutionalised settings. Primarily, we work with children, youth, women, men, families, persons in need of physiological and psychological care, the differently-abled, senior citizens, and victims of natural disasters. Together, these individual projects are equipped with the power to transform entire communities.
SEESHA nurtures young dreams and moulds children and youth into change-makers of their communities and the nation through a range of tailor-made development projects.
At SEESHA, we transform shy, uneducated women into empowered individuals through trainings and development programmes.
SEESHA reaches out to the elderly who are abandoned and destitute in order to assure them a healthy and dignified retired life.
With the vision of an inclusive society, SEESHA trains, counsels and motivates the differently-abled to lead independent and self-sufficient lives.
SEESHA health outreach projects aim to make quality healthcare affordable to the poor, even in the remotest of communities.
SEESHA’s country-wide network of volunteers responds to the need for relief, providing basic provisions and financial assistance to those affected by natural disasters.

- 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

- Motor Vehicles for Differently-Abled
At SEESHA, we recognise individuals for their abilities and not their disabilities. We also believe that, with a little support, the differently-abled can be empowered to live self-sustained lives.
This July, we have distributed 5 retro-fitment motor vehicles to deserving differently-abled persons at a special event in Chennai. Moreover, through the contributions of Karunya University students, retro-fitment motor vehicles, tricycles, wheelchairs and cerebral palsy chairs were also distributed to over 20 differently-abled persons during their convocation ceremony in Coimbatore.
