Seva Mandir is an NGO and deals with the issues of the tribal people in India who were left out of the mainstream by the British Rule in India. The present government of India wants to include all people in the national development. Seva Mandir was started as a modest organization in the 1970's by a retired school teacher who wanted to provide basic literacy to the surrounding villages of his city. Since then, it has grown to a full-fledged NGO dealing witah various issues like education, status of women, health caare and new economic initiatives in the desert area where it is located. It receives large international grants too to assist it.
