19 years of transforming lives and restoring communities
SEESHA was founded in November 2003 by our respected Founder, Dr. Paul Dhinakaran, with the precious vision of providing charitable services to the underserved. Over the years, your generosity and patronage have equipped us to alleviate the suffering of the vulnerable, lighten the burden of the less privileged, and brighten the faces of thousands of people in need with smiles and hope of a better tomorrow. SEESHA has today grown in capacity and skill sets, blossoming into a family-focused community development organization touching the lives of over 3 lakh people in India.
As we step into another year, we look forward to your continued support to reach out to more people and improve their lives. The invaluable support of partners like you has enabled us to provide disadvantaged children and youth a chance at a better future, empower women, improve livelihoods, build sustainable communities, and make our society a better place to live for the disadvantaged, despite the many challenges faced!
