    The Edison Memorial Tower, designated as a historic site by both the New Jersey and National Registers of Historic Places, is a tribute to the inventive and entrepreneurial legacy of Thomas Alva Edison. Located in the Menlo Park region of Edison, Middlesex County, New Jersey, this memorial commemorates the accomplishments of the renowned inventor and entrepreneur. Standing on the same grounds where Edison's Menlo Park laboratory once stood, the tower marks the location of the world's first organized research and development facility. It was on this historic site that the groundbreaking functional incandescent light bulb was successfully created in October 1879. April, recognized as Earth Month, is dedicated to raising awareness and promoting initiatives related to environmental conservation and sustainability. It serves as a time for global engagement in actions aimed at fostering environmental stewardship through diversification, education, and activation. This April, Sewa International, partnering with the Edison Memorial Tower Corporation , welcomes volunteers to engage in an extensive cleanup and beautification initiative at Thomas Edison State Park. Collaboratively, we will clear fallen trees, prune bushes and shrubs, and create walking trails leading to a pond on the expansive 36-acre Menlo Park property. Joining forces, we aim to construct a safe and inspiring environment that sparks innovation and empowers individuals to pursue their dreams. Together We Serve Better!

    Rivers don’t just carry water from place to place—they play a major role in supporting the overall health and wellbeing of our ecosystem: they drain rainwater, create energy and provide food and habitats for plants and animals.

    Rivers need to be free of contaminated waterways, removing humanmade trash and banks of polluted sediment transforms streams to their former glory.

    Let us unite together to reduce the waste runoff into the water, help maintain health, beauty, and safety of our community.

    Sewa Harvesting Hope: Empowering Communities through Sustainable Gardening and Nutrition! Kiddie Keep Well Camp was established in 1924 to provide "fresh air" experiences to underprivileged children with tuberculosis in Middlesex County. Since its inception, the camp's objective has been to promote physical health, social interaction, self-esteem, mental well-being, and fundamental life skills through a holistic approach. In addition to its primary objectives, the camp offers activities that bridge generational divides, bringing together both elderly and young campers seeking to establish social bonds among seniors while also encouraging physical exercise through entertaining and health-related activities. Kiddie Keep Well Camp has provided impoverished children and older citizens in Middlesex County, NJ, with a safe and health-oriented camping experience for many years. The Sewa event at Kiddie Keep Well Camp focuses on solving food insecurity through community involvement and sustainable approaches, which are critical for building resilience and forging unity. This transformative event has the potential to greatly improve the lives of marginalized people while also creating a healthier, more equitable food system via the integration of sustainable gardening practices with concepts of service and communal engagement.
