Our journey of educating rural India could have not been possible but for the support of volunteers from all walks of life.
We are happy to share that this voluntary support continues in various ways and is strengthening with each passing day.
Recently, six students from Jain College, Belgaum visited the AIM for Seva Chatralayam for Girls, Belgaum, Karnataka and taught our girls how to make paper bags and the importance of eco-friendly bags.
The workshop lasted two hours. As part of a project on environment awareness, the students from Jain College taught our children of the Belgaum Chatralayam the importance of recycling and environmental protection. The hostel is home to 31 girls.
Our Chatralayams are conceived as a cultural living eco system and the focus is on all round development. Apart from academic support and nutritious meals, we also give our children exposure to various extracurricular activities like yoga, dance, music, computer training, painting and drawing and other art and craft work. Our students regularly participate in many state and district level competitions and win accolades on a regular basis. We also welcome volunteers to our premises who provide valuable life lessons to our students.
Increasingly, adopting a sustainable lifestyle is gaining ground. At AIM for Seva, we are also promoting sustainable living initiatives in various ways. Be is solar powered panels or organic kitchen gardens across our Chatralayams, we believe it’s paramount to respect the environment.
Another initiative of ours Spirit of the Earth is conceptualised as an immersion centre. Located in Mylapore, Chennai, the centre features carefully crafted products that include organic heritage rice and books written by our founder, Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati to homespun items by AIM for Seva Krupa Home residents and tribal women from Anaikatti, Coimbatore.
