Our Principles

Our philosophy relies on the principles of:

  • Education and Life Skills – educating local communities, individuals and especially women and youth in the areas of waste management, natural resource conservation and environmental and wildlife awareness
  • Empowerment - empowering ourselves and others to change the way we grow and develop as an economy, society and person, electing to take our time and commit to trial and error to find a better way to live and work
  • Environmental Health - protecting, conserving and rehabilitation the local environment, with its flora, fauna and natural resources, so that all creatures can live healthier, better lives
  • Sustainable development - ensuring that the opportunities of today that do not diminish for seekers of tomorrow


We believe that:

  • Local communities are capable of developing from within, without external financial aid;
  • Creative and new approaches to problems are needed to cause a real and sustainable impact;
  • If we lead by example creating new solutions, we can inspire people to join / follow us;
  • Volunteering and a general belief in the need to help each other should serve as the base of change;
  • A social entrepreneurial approach is the most effective and sustainable;
  • Allowing people to rely on charity for their livelihood encourages ‘rent-seeking’ behavior, discourages self-help, and is thus not supported;
  • A lot can be done with willpower and passion; money is not the only agent for change;
  • Awareness through education is the basis of creating a desire to develop sustainably;
  • Youth can be at the lead for community based sustainable development through engagement, development and role-modelling approach.
  • SEVA Principle (Social Entrepreneurship and Volunteer Action) for Sustainability


About us

EduCARE India creates own self-sustainable support systems through social entrepreneurship and volunteer action.

We are not a charity organisation that runs on external aid but an autonomous social enterprise that firmly believes in financial sustainability from within itself, created in the local area.   We believe that to address the need gaps of education, environmental and empowerment issues in rural areas, we need self-sustainable and innovative community organisations. We therefore conduct some of our activities in such a way that we meet our human resources, material resources and monetary through social entrepreneurship and volunteer action.

These resources come from different initiatives including, but not limited to, funding through the pooling of resources from social entrepreneurs, trustees and other members of the organisation. In the past we have generated our own funds by participating in some social entrepreneurial endeavors such as publishing information and career books.

The SEVA principle integrates with other principles and beliefs such as social equity and integrated sustainable development, grassroots level community engagement and education, systems and design thinking, youth and women in development leadership etc.
