Orione Seva works to enable women and children from poorest communities to end their
own poverty and children with intellectual disabilities, to live a life of dignity.
We do this by teaching livelihoods and encouraging savings with the women; Ensuring
education of children through sponsorships, providing holistic and supportive environment
and education, and nutrition and health; and building capacity of severely intellectually
challenged children to live a life of dignity. We have reached out to 500 children
and 150 women since 2000.Orione Seva was set up by the Congregation of the Sons
of Providence founded by St.Luigi Orione from Italy and seeks to serve the poorest
of the poor regardless of caste, creed and religion.We work with the poor communities
of ChikkaByrathi village near Bangalore and with children and youth with intellectual
disability across Bangalore. We are also currently working to reach out to more
communities in Kerala and Andhra Pradesh that are currently in early-stage projects.
