Sevalaya is a registered Charitable Trust established in 1988 with activities centered in and round the remote Kasuva village near Tiruninravur in Tiruvallur District, North West of Chennai in Tamil Nadu, India. The organization is professionally managed and is governed by a Board of Trustees drawn from industry with a deep commitment to social development. Sevalaya draws its inspiration from Mahatma Gandhi, Swami Vivekananda and the patriotic Poet Mahakavi Subramania Bharathiyar and their philosophies.

Sevalaya’s Vision is based on Swami Vivekanada’s belief that by helping others we are in fact serving ourselves and the giver is also blessed. We currently serve 33 villages in and around Kasuva Village about 50 Kilometers from Chennai. Read More »
