Sewa International inaugurated its first school in a remote village, Chhinka, in district Chamoli (Uttarakhand) on December 5, 2015. It is a co-ed school with 148 students receiving education till 8th class. The old school was badly damaged during Uttarakhand floods in 2013 and needed to be re-built. After inspection of the damaged site in 2013-2014, its new construction was sponsored by the benevolent donors of Sewa International UK .
The second Sewa UK School in Jammu & Kashmir is currently under construction at Salana, District Kishtwar. The existing school at Salana ( currently run by Bhartiya Shiksha Samiti, J&K), has suffered extensive damages over the last few years as a result of earthquakes and the heavy floods of 2014.
It has around 125 students till 8th class and is presently run from a dilapidated rented location.
Sewa UK, under its brand of Divya School, has undertaken the responsibility to provide for the new building with new facilities for students.
