India

At Orione Seva, we believe in making a difference and adding value to people’s lives, one small good deed at a time.

Orion Seva, established in 2003, is the Indian branch of “The Sons of Divine Providence,” a Roman Catholic religious congregation founded by Saint Luigi Orione (1872–1940) in Italy in 1893. Orion Seva is inspired by its founder’s motto “Do good always, do good to all, harm nobody.” Don Orione is remembered for his commitment to social justice, diversity, and equality and the selfless service rendered unquestioningly to those in need. We remain committed to his principles and our services are open to people of all backgrounds and beliefs.
