Chetanya Sewa works with elderly women who have been abandoned by their families, or have otherwise become isolated from the community. These women are extremely vulnerable: they often suffer health issues, usually have no source of income and are almost always homeless or live in substandard, makeshift housing. At the moment they are able to provide food and clothing, but they envision one day building a home for these women on the edge of the Narmada River. Profits from Jhoole are helping to fund the construction of this home for Chetanya Sewa.
Chetanya Sewa’s programs also include:
- monthly medical services for the citizens of four secluded villages
- working towards the eradication of child labor through economic outreach programs that uplift impoverished families
- women’s development and education initiatives
