Project Initiatives[edit]

Free Student Homes (Chatralayas): The core initiative of AIM for Seva, the free student home concept is a means to create an educational and homely environment for children to live, learn, and grow.[2] Children are provided with a home environment, nutrition, hygienic premises, extracurricular activities, and caretakers to focus on their needs. Education regarding healthy living and ‘eco-learning’ or understanding how to be environmentally aware are also aspects of the experience. Many student homes are located near other academic institutions, primary, secondary, and higher education to ensure that students can access to continuing studies.
