Project Dawn

Providing trauma treatment to freed child slaves in India
and help them build a better future.

Our mission

Watch this video (15 min) on child labor,

A bright light after dark times

In the past 30 years over 80,000 children in India have been freed from their former slave masters by Kailash Satyarthi (Nobel peace prize winner) and his team. Once freed, the children are sheltered in Bal Ashram, Jaipur intended for long stay and schooling of children who are not able to return to their homes. The Save by Seva Foundation is working towards providing psychological treatment to these traumatized children.
