The All India Movement (AIM) for Seva was started by Swami Dayananda Saraswati in the year 2000.
Registered in New Delhi, AIM for Seva is an independent public charitable trust committed to reaching out and caring for the unfortunate. Caring for all, irrespective of religion, community and nationality. It started as a program for integrated community development, and soon gathered momentum to become a nationwide movement, touching the lives of over 10 Million rural and tribal people across 15 states of India. The Organization has a Special Consultative Status with the economic and Social Council of the United Nations.
AIM for Seva creates a world of caring and compassion for all those in need, particularly in the field of education and health care. We reach out to children from underprivileged sections of society who do not have access to proper education, exposure and interaction with the outside world, and therefore denied opportunities for a better future. It is in the tribal and inaccessible parts of our country, where such a situation is prevalent. Lack of schools and a meager income from poverty stricken parents force the children to seek employment.
And that’s where AIM for Seva makes the difference. We provide the children with a clean living environment, nutritious food, uniforms, schooling needs, value based education, extra-curricular activities and much more to every child who needs it. Our objective is to help today’s children become responsible citizens of tomorrow and contribute to their family, society and country.
Besides education, AIM for Seva focuses on primary healthcare through hospitals, clinics and mobile medical units. Through these projects, we have reached out to over 2 Million people, spread across 5 states. We have also ventured into other ignored aspects of society, from women empowerment to programmes that benefit localities.

Swami Dayananda Saraswati is a visionary, thinker, author and one of the foremost masters of the Vedanta. Though often associated with many classical scholars, Swamiji’s ability to relate to today’s youth is highly regarded. It is this love for children that led him to set up 4 “gurukulams” or teaching centres in India, and many more across the globe.
Having grown up in a small village in the Kaveri delta in Tamil Nadu, Swamiji is very sensitive to the needs of the poor and unfortunate. It has made him appreciate and empathize with the problems faced in rural areas such as a lack of good education, health care, and employment opportunities. This concern for the people and the future of the country inspired him to initiate a movement called AIM for Seva.
Swamiji has also initiated and participated in the following international forums:
To transform society through a network of seva, of caring,to help each child contribute to the progress of the nation.
To make education accessible to every child in the tribal, rural, and urban areas through the concept of a Student Home.
To provide basic health care to people living in the remote regions of the country.
To ensure that value based education in a nurturing environment, reaches every home of the less privileged sections of the Indian society.
AIM for Seva is committed to realizing its goal through the concept of a Student Home.
