usa-stats-oct-2016Sewa Day, a day of pure voluntary selfless service, was celebrated by the Indian-American community for the 6th successive year with community service projects at 32 locations across the US. Hundreds of volunteers across different age-groups and backgrounds including youth and children from Sewa International and partner organisations came together between September 11 and October 16 and worked on a variety of activities to make a difference in their communities. This year saw events in new states and cities, a 60% increase in projects, and increased diversity of projects from feeding the homeless and tree planting to free immigration service sessions, and even a FIRST Robotics-connected STEM camp.
