Sevabharathi Volunteers are trained and working amony the Poor sections in the Education and Awarness Program Projects. Even though we are in frontline education, the importance of education will not go for. This will be understood from the studies in weaker sections and aadivasi colonies in Kerala. The current situation of our state is so developed in almost all sectors, but the lifestyle of weaker sections/vanavasi colonies are still underdeveloped. It is realized from the studies from the coastal and forest societies that the importance of education is not least considered in Kerala society because of the fact that the literacy rates in the state is high comparing with other Indian states. Even though the modern society is developed enough to understand about the water content in another universe, the life style and life situation in the backward communities like forest and coastal communities is not much improved.
The sevabharathi Vidhyadarshan program concentrates mainly in integrated education and development of children. At Attappadi of Palakkad district and Wayanad which are mainly for tribal children. Under the project we are giving regular tutions and computer education for the children. Tribal people mostly like to stay in the forest region. Only a few of them have a permanent job at either public or private sector. Educated tribal people ( +2 above) were trained by Sevabharathi and appointed as Gothrasevika and they are the teachers for the respective hamlets for the project. Sevabharathi aims to give quality education for all in the tribal hamlets.
Under this project Sevabharathi is ensuring the education to the economically backward children by giving study materials to them. It is estimated that the value of the material kit as 800 per student. The scheme is very helpful for the parents from the economically backward families at the time of school opening.
Vidhayanidhi is the financial support given to the meritorious students from the economically backward families. The students from kinder garten to Graduation or professional courses or even PhD are included in this scheme..
In our current society, health expenditure rose above a limit which even will affect our financial stability. In this scenario, as an organization with utmost social commitment, we can’t stand aloof on the matter. Every year we are giving financial assistance for the people who are suffering with chronic disease from financially backward families. Due to the rise in applications and our limited financial possibilities, we may not be able to address all the applicants. But considering the support less people, Sevabharathi has started an Program Called ArogyaSeva to address all possible section of people. Under this project also, we are considering people with chronic disease. The people who are under treatment for such diseases in private or public super speciality hospitals will be eligible for the scheme. A person from any stage of disease is eligible for the assistance. The assistance is given as one time financial support. The type of disease and the financial condition of the family are the considering factor for the amount of assistance to be given.
The ultimate aim of any developmental initiative is to create self-sufficiency and financial security in an individual. Through this we can help them to ignite self-pride in them. We are providing financial assistance or loans for the people to start enterprises for the low income groups.

To empower the marginalized and down trodden community should be the basic idea of social services. Thus we can uplift them to a better social status and only through such initiatives we can lead our nation to the ultimate glory. With this idea in mind, Sevabharathi has implemented different initiatives to empower the marginalized.
