SEWAC is synonymous with quality education and is a pioneer in rooting all-round development and roistering an all-round growth in its wards. This prestigious organisation was established in 1999 in a building called Azmi Apartment located in Abul Fazal Enclave, Jamia Nagar, New Delhi, under the keen eye & care of none other than the founder, Mr. Ihteshamuddin.
Our Mission is to build capacities and capabilities of people and increase their access to information, technologies and innovations through market and value chain integration.
As one of the well known NGOs in the livelihood space in India that works for the children and youth, we strongly believe that the nation’s strength and future lies in the hands of its children and youth. Unlike the developed countries where 90% youth opt for some or the other sort of vocational training, less than 5% undergo vocational training in our country despite the fact that India is a country with the largest youth population.
Encouraging entrepreneurship and innovation through execution of various development projects, research and advocacy through knowledge platforms.
We empower underprivileged children, youth and women through relevant education, innovative healthcare and market-focused livelihood programmes. We deploy best possible methodology and technology for achieving ideal practice and promote good governance. To link business competitiveness of the corporate with social development initiatives; also to sensitize privileged children, youth and citizens in general to promote Civic Driven Change.
To be an organization of excellence that empowers people through entrepreneurship and skill development towards achieving enhanced and sustainable incomes. Skill Development through training programmes for youth, and women depending upon the local conditions and help them become independent by generating income through various opportunities.
Our Success Story
SEWAC believes that education is both the means as well as the end to a better life: the means because it empowers an individual to earn his/her livelihood and the end because it increases one’s awareness on a range of issues – from healthcare to appropriate social behaviour to understanding one’s rights – and in the process help him/her evolve as a better citizen.
SEWAC realised that Education for Children cannot be achieved without the family, particularly, unless the mother is assured of health care and empowered. Moreover, when an elder sibling is educated and relevantly skilled to be employable and begins earning, the journey of empowerment continues beyond the present generation.
Become a Volunteer Today
We believes that unless members of the civil society are involved proactively in the process of development, sustainable change will not happen. We encourage and invite volunteers to be an active part of our organization and share the same vision and purpose as us – to work for the welfare of children and their families. Volunteers are the backbone of every organization – they not only carry the organization’s ideals within them, but also spread the message far and beyond, sensitizing the society towards the cause.
