Volunteer Forms

Here at Sevalaya we have been lucky enough to host many volunteers, not only from within India but all over the world. Sevalaya promotes a two way relationship with their volunteers, hoping that both sides gain more knowledge and benefit mutually   at the end of the volunteering period. . Volunteers have come in groups to spend the day here, have helped out with a week long projects, while some have even stayed an entire year! There is much to be done here as Sevalaya runs a broad variety of facilities, in Chennai, Thiruvallur, Kanchipuram, Thanjavur and Thirunelveli in Tamilnadu and in Puducherry. 8 locations, We invite  volunteers to participate in all our activities at the Children Home, Old Age Home, School, Medical centre, Community College, Gaushala, library, organic farming at Kasuva Village , Thiruvallur. Sevalaya also has opportunities for volunteers at Community colleges in Thiruvallur, Kanchipuram & Chennai in Tamilnadu and in Puducherry, and mobile medical camps in Thiruvallur and Kanchipuram.   .

Each individual brings this/her own energy and skills; we welcome all volunteers with an open heart and mind to join Sevalaya in its initiatives for the welfare of the underprivileged and rural development. .

They chose to do it:

Mr. David Kovara, a University student from New Jersey, USA, spent two months in the summer of  2000 and completed two projects – a computerised inventory system for our Medical Center and developing the interests and talent of our children in painting (Murals).

Charlotte Chapman, a community artist from the UK and Mr. Andrews, Drawing Master at Sevalaya, worked with the children in Plastic Bottle Bird Project. Charlotte Chapman, who conceived this project, came to Sevalaya’s Kasuva centre through Children’s Art Village, a registered arts charity in USA.. These birds were exhibited in the Russian Cultural Centre, Chennai.

For the past 5 years educational charity Project Trust have sent two young volunteers from the UK for 11 month placements to teach English at Sevalaya, and to be a helping hand in the wider campus at Kasuva Village.
