RLS SEWA was founded in the year 2005 in the memory of Late Raja Lakshmeshwar Singh
who was a renowned sportsman, Ex Member of the State Legislative Assembly and was
wellknown as the saviour of poor. He believed that a good mental and physical health
of youth (and people in general) are essential in establishing a strong and affluent
society and nation.
"To produce so much of food in my land so that no human being in this entire
world lives in hunger" is what his vision was for the world. By removing the
tears and pain and bringing joy and happiness to the face of the poor and needy
people was what he did throughout his lifetime. His Principles and Values led to
the formation of RLS SEWA, which continuously works in the field of Education,Sports,
agricultural upliftment and social activities.
