I’d like to volunteer, what can I do?

Sewa Day is a chance for you to improve the community you live in by giving your time.

We don’t ask for your money, however we do ask for your time. It won’t cost you anything other than a few hours of your time to work together, do a good deed and be part of a movement for a great cause. No fund-raising will take place on Sewa Day.

Tell me about Sewa Day

Sewa is a universal concept, which involves performing an act of kindness without expectation of reward.

Guiding Principles

On Sewa Day, thousands across the world come together to perform Sewa and experience the true joy of giving. You can join an existing group, or form your own with your friends and family – all ages are welcome. Our projects aim to:

  • Relieve hardship and poverty
  • Help the environment
  • Bring a little joy… to those who have little

  2. Tell us what you’re going to do on Sewa Day
  3. Organise logistics and encourage volunteers to take part
