The Delhi branch is housed in the same complex, located opposite to Moolchand metro station, Lajpat Nagar-IV, New Delhi.
Our first Chairman of the Delhi Branch – Late Shri Sevak Ram Ji started an innovative donation scheme known as “Mushti Dan”. The General public was encouraged to contribute not only cash but in kind by way of their unwanted used items.
These items were then redistributed to the needy poor public.“MUSHI DAN” clicked so well that Delhi Branch was able to start various welfare projects. Best NGO India.
Today we are proud to carry out welfare activities in the field of EDUCATION, HEALTH, and WOMEN EMPOWERMENT under the able guidance of Sh. Raj Kumar, the current Chairman of the Delhi branch.
The Foundation stone of our Society was laid in 1956 by Dr.Rajendra Prasad, first President of India.
Lala Lajpat Rai (28 Jan 1865- 17 Nov 1928)
- Lala Lajpat Rai was a prominent nationalist leader who played an important role in India’s struggle for freedom.
- He was a prominent member of the famous ‘Lal Bal Pal’ firebrand trio during the independence movement. His fierce brand of patriotism and potent vocalism against the British rule earned him the title of ‘Punjab Kesari’ or the Lion of the Punjab.
- Lala Lajpat Rai was born on January 28, 1865 to Munshi Radha Krishna Azad and Gulab Devi at Dhudike village in Ferozpur District.
- Munshi Azad was a scholar of Persian and Urdu. Lala’s mother was a religious lady who inculcated strong moral values in her children. His family values allowed Lajpat Rai the freedom of having different faiths and beliefs.
- In 1920, after his return from America, Lajpat Rai was invited to preside over the special session of the Congress in Calcutta, (now Kolkata).
- He led fiery demonstrations against the British in Punjab in protest for their brutal actions at Jallianwallah Bagh. When Gandhi launched the non-cooperation movement in 1920, he plunged into action leading the movement in Punjab.
- On October 30, 1928, Lala Lajpat Rai led a peaceful procession to oppose the arrival of the Simon Commission in Lahore. Intercepting the march, Superintendent of Police, James A.Scott ordered his police force to ‘lathi-charge’ at the activists. The police targeted Lajpat Rai, in particular, and hit him on the chest. This action left Lala Lajpat Rai with severe injuries, which led to his death on November 17, 1928.
Founder Of The Servants of People Society
The Delhi Branch runs two Senior Secondary Schools, one which is aided and has approximately 1000 children and the other one is entirely funded on our own having around 2000 students. The main feature of these schools is that we not only cater to the poor and lower-middle-class section of the society, but more than 400 children with special needs get an education and help in mainstreaming enjoy the reputation of not only 100% success in academics but also in extra-curricular activities.
School for Slum children
Apart from this, another wing, Sisters of People Society runs 18 Balwadis (schools for the underprivileged children) supporting 1000 children in the age group of 3 to 5 years, in accordance with Government norms, teaching follows the prescribed play way method and is carefully monitored by well-qualified monitors. In these Balwadis children are provided a free set of books, which help them master numbers, Hindi & English alphabets, poems, nursery rhymes, and practical training is also given in Art & Craft. They are provided mid meals. The idea is to prepare these children to get absorbed in the mainstream of society without many handicaps. Education and learning are free of cost and they remain in a clean environment for the major part of the day, whilst their mothers work part-time jobs.

About two decades back the then Chairman Shri Sevak RamJi thought of providing dignity to some poor but able ladies with some constructive work. It was his initiative that some ladies were asked to grind MASALAS by hand and we facilitate the sale of these masalas from our premises. Today their efforts and the foresight of the management have resulted into a flourishing business and these ladies are now being provided with not only Basic Minimum Wage decided by the Government from time to time, but also facilities like Provident Fund and E.S.I coverage.
In addition, we also have a scheme of helping widows in rehabilitation, pension, child education, daughter’s marriage etc.
Nevertheless, whatever we have achieved has been due to three major factors:
1. Donations from individuals and Corporate
2. Socially conscious honorary workers
3. Dedicated staff
We solicit your support in terms of not only DONATIONS, but we welcome social workers giving their valuable time for service of society.
