About SEWA Australia
SEWA - Selfless Service
SEWA Australia has been serving the Australian community since 1996. It is one of the few organisations which is fully driven by the volunteers.
With a focus to provide a healthy socio-economic environment to the families, Sewa Australia is intended at creating a violence and trauma free environment for children, young people and families as it plays a crucial role in the overall well being of the people.
SEWA Australia started with migrant settlement services, addressing grief and loss, strengthening the family with early intervention, all of which has made a practical difference in people’s everyday lives giving them a better chance to develop and plunge into the future, with confidence.
