Mar Thoma Suvishesha Sevika Sanghom is the womenâ€™s organization of Mar Thoma Church that was established with the purpose of providing a platform for Marthomite women above the age of 18 to play a significant role in the evangelistic and charitable mission of the church. The organization was founded in 1919 under the leadership of Abraham Mar Thoma Suffragan Metropolitan and is headquartered in Thiruvalla, Kerala, India. The solid foundation of the highly prominent organization was laid by the sacrificial and relentless efforts of its early leaders. This calendar year marks the 95th anniversary of the organization, which has grown tremendously since its inception. Sevika Sanghom now runs many orphanages, schools, hostels and cottage industry units to help, educate and empower underprivileged children and women. The organization regularly publishes its monthly magazine called â€œvanita Bodhiniâ€™. More details can be found at http://marthoma.in/organisations/mar-thoma-suvishesha-sevika-sangam/
