Aim for Seva
Empowerment through value-based education; through 97 Free Student Hostels spread across 16 states in India, we ensure children in rural India have access to education.
Work and Achievements
AIM for SEVA, a registered pan-India, charitable trust began its journey to provide value-based education and transform the lives of rural and tribal children in India in the year 2000.
AIM for SEVA is today present in 16 states from Karnaprayag to Kanyakumari with 129 projects. Our flagship initiative is Chatralayams (Student Hostels) to help educate and empower underprivileged rural children at no cost. A deeper understanding of rural problems also revealed that education cannot be viewed in isolation and must complement interventions that address issues of poverty and healthcare. Subsequently, we ventured into formal education, healthcare, vocational training programs and sustainable livelihood models.
