About Rashtriya Sewa Bharati
Our country takes pride in our 'unity in diversity'. Geographically, many tribes and forest life are found here. Many organizations are working for the social and economic development of backward, deprived, afflicted and disadvantaged people of all these communities. These institutions are trying to elevate the lives of the deprived, afflicted, suppressed and neglected sections of society with selfless service. Efforts are on to connect lower class people with the mainstream. Many of these people do not even have access to basic amenities, that is why they need as much support as possible. In keeping with social interests, Rashtriya Seva Bharti Sansthan has been playing an important role in uniting all these institutions since the year 2003.
Rashtriya Seva Bharti, through its national platform, is collaborating in the removal of various obstacles related to the operation of our affiliated institutions, by means of training, cooperation, guidance and providing direction to service operations.
