About Sethubandhanam

Sethu Bandhanam is a platform to connect well-minded donors to dharmakartas in need of funds. India (bharata-desha) is a land of great ancient treasure with Sanatana Dharma (Hinduism) as its founding stone. All over India various dharmic activities take place through the year – all of which require funds. The intent of this web-platform is to bring all well-minded donors on one platform to ensure that all many dharmic activities receive the funds they require to be realized. Sethu-bandhanam is a non-profit platform that exists with the only intent of furthering dharma and dharmic activities in India. It will focus and feature only those activities that will further Sanatana Dharma.

Sethu Bandhanam, which means a joining bridge is exactly what this web-platform is. It serves as a conduit between well-minded recipients and donors. Sethubandhanam is a part of the Sethubandhanam Welfare Foundation – a non-profit registered with the central government – the most credible form of non-profits registered in India ( Section-8 licensed)
