Sewa International

About SEWA International

Sewa International began as a movement  in 1993 to engage the Indian Diaspora(NRI) worldwide. It encouraged these people to remain connected with Indian roots through contribution to humanitarian causes locally and in India, especially in times of natural calamities like floods, earthquakes, cyclones, tsunamis, pandemics etc, which cause large scale distress, and needs huge resources for recovery. The movement has spread its wings worldwide to more than 25 countries now.

In India, Sewa International was established in 1997 as a registered non-profit trust, based on the Indian ethos of ‘Service before Self’ and “World is One Family”. Since its inception, Sewa International is relentlessly serving humanity in distress irrespective of caste, creed, color, religion, race or region.

Over the past decade, the transition has happened from providing support to short term disaster relief & rescue activities, towards more effective long-term rehabilitation and development projects in the underserved areas. The organization is driven by the need to provide more permanent solutions to the underlying socio-economic issues. Sewa International is presently working in the domains of health, education, livelihood generation, environment protection, skilling, community/rural development, women empowerment, water conservation across 20 states in India, with direct interventions as well as with the help of committed grassroot organizations.


Our future efforts are inline with the SDGs defined by UN for achieving lasting peace and prosperity for the people and the planet.

About the Fellowship

Sewa Fellowship is a strategic investment in human capacity, and grassroots organizations to build solutions for India’s complex socio-economic-cultural matrix. We believe in the power and potential of youth to drive ideas, run movements, nurture organizations, and seek truth and justice to together build a better Bharat.

As a 100-week program, the fellowship equips young, bright minds with knowledge, skills and a mindset to serve. With extensive mentor support, the program bridges the needs of grassroots development with a vision for the future.


Indicative Age: 21-30 years

Must have some volunteer experience with the community,with a minimum 1 year of equivalent work experience

Language constraints based on project locations


Around 30,000 per month during the entire period of grassroots work. This will be in the form of direct stipend, dedicated fixed deposits, house rent allowance, and other allowances. Apart from this, there would be an additional investment of around ?15,000 per month per fellow, on the trainings. This would be in the form of courses, reflective activities, immersive programs, and hands-on workshops.

How to Apply

There are two formats to apply:

  • Direct sign-up by the applicant.
  • Nomination by his/her senior. This can be a reporting manager, professor, teacher, guru, colleague or a mentor.

This would be followed by a application form, and a statement of purpose.

The next stage of the selection involves some activities that the fellow would need to undertake in his/her own location/geography, followed by a telephonic conversation.

The next stage involves an in-person interaction with some group activities.

The activities in both stages are designed to fulfill three purposes: fun-filled learnings, understand the on-ground nature of the fellows, and provide an immersive perspective of the fellowship and the aspiring fellow.
