  • Where Learning meets Fun!

Summer camps are a great way for children to get a break from their day-to-day routines, socialise, learn new skills, and keep them engaged with learning.

At SEESHA, we believe that every child deserves the opportunity to explore their potential and experience the joy of learning and self-discovery.

Nearly 700 children from rural, tribal, and urban communities across India participated in SEESHA's summer camps, which were hosted across seven target project locations under the theme “Child Health & Personality Development”. During the camps held in the 3rd and 4th weeks of May, the project teams organised a variety of activities, including sessions on personal hygiene, environmental and community awareness, promoting physical and emotional well-being, interactive games, and outdoor play, to augment children’s awareness, independence, and creativity.

  • New Year, New 'You'!

Though many young people start off with illicit substances as a form of recreation or due to peer pressure, youth aged 18–35 among low-income groups get addicted to alcohol, smoking, or illicit drugs to cope with unemployment, trauma, fill the void due to the loss of a loved one, or escape neglect and abuse.

To overcome tough days to stay sober and learn to say 'NO' to alcohol, smoking, and drug abuse, SEESHA has been organizing sensitization campaigns under the theme 'New Year, New You!' in its target project communities.

Several awareness programmes, namely art competitions, rallies, signature campaigns, pledges, film shows, and skits, emphasising the concept of 'No Drugs, No Alcohol, Be Smoke Free, Live Substance Free' have been conducted, and many more are planned across SEESHA project locations.

Your support can help us reach out to many other sufferers and channel them to live purposefully beyond addiction.

  • Your child’s future is in your hands!

Children raised in a peaceful and happy environment at home turn out to be the future changemakers of a nation. Yes, indeed, families play an eminent role in the emotional stability and wellbeing of a child. Sadly, many children go through emotional turmoil from their childhood, making them delinquents in the future.

To promote the healthy upbringing of children within nurturing home spaces, SEESHA has been advocating for child safety, the prevention of child abuse, and fostering family well-being.

Recently, in view of Children’s Day and SEESHA’s 20th anniversary celebrations, SEESHA organized childcare awareness mini-marathon events under the theme “Your child’s future is in your hands!” across 7 SEESHA project locations from November 25-27 to highlight the significant role of parents in raising happy children who will be the future changemakers of our great Nation. More than 2,400 people, including children, young people, and women, from all walks of life, participated with great passion and joy in the mini-marathon campaigns across 5 States.

Caring for the Abandoned Elderly

The Elderly needs to be treated with courtesy, respect, compassion and with dignity. Sadly, instead of treating our elders with the gratitude they deserve, many are often too busy to appreciate them or acknowledge their contributions to family and society. Consequently, few of them are left uncared and had to live alone without out any financial support.

SEESHA, being an organization grounded in love and compassion, reaches out to the elderly by catering to the needs of the few such abandoned and destitute, offering them care and support through its Elderly Care Program.

Through the Old Age Care Home, SEESHA has been catering to the physical and emotional needs of such seniors by providing a safe place for them to live. Here, the seniors find solace in each other by nurturing their bonds of friendship and finding comfort in a home away from their homes.

Through our Senior Citizen Outreach Program, SEESHA has been providing the utmost love and care to the elderly living in the community by ensuring that their basic needs are taken care of.

But there are more elderly people out there who need our compassion and support. You can join hands with SEESHA to ensure that the daily needs of the elderly are met and make them feel loved!
