Ride For Sewa

About Ride

When we count the most thankless jobs in the world, a soldier would easily make it to the top three in the list. Being a soldier takes more than courage as they are the ones who sacrifice themselves for the greater cause, they make our lives easier without getting the credit they deserve.

SEWA international, after the tremendous success of its previous version of ‘Ride for SEWA’, is all set to organise it yet again this year. The route this time would be from Delhi to Mana pass, the journey would span through 6 days, i.e., 12th to 17th of August. The spirit of the event is the same, to honour our brothers at the border, only this time with the added touch of Raksha Bandhan. Our riders would get the opportunity to visit our various training centres (PMKK), learn about the work we are doing in partnership with the locals and the government in the development sector. All in all we have put our heart and soul into designing an event which is both informative and insightful for our riders.

Key Highlights

  • Celebrate Independence Day and Rakshabandhan with our soldiers at Indo-China border near Mana village.
  • Drive through the queen of hills Mussoorie and Dhanaulti.
  • Ride over the highest electric power plant of Asia.
  • Interact with the community through various SEWA activities.
  • Experience the beautiful meadows of Chopta and jungle drive through Mandal.
  • Volunteering at Sri Badrinath Temple.
  • Evening full of music and culture.
  • Relax at natural hot water spring and many more.
