3. Briefly describe the motivation for starting this group.

      We would like to introduce our institute & its activities to you and hope to get

some substantial financial assistance for proposed new school building & preparation of playground.

Ours is a small village situated far interior from the main stream of urban population with a view to provide basic education & other facilities to this backward village named Vilawade, Tal-Sawantawadi ,Dist-Sindhudurg .45 years ago, a modest beginning was made by organizing ourselves in the above named small institution. During the course of last 45 years ago, we have built up one modern school building(clay walls) that is catering the need of this backward population. With the passage of time, hot awakening has taken place & the strength of the students swelled like anything. Our only one building premises became inadequate to accommodate the increasing student population. Besides imparting education we encourage bright students by awarding merits awards for securing 1st, 2nd, 3rd ranks in their respective classes. Every year we are also finding a donor for providing textbooks, school-uniforms, notebooks for the poor backward students. Our institution belongs enough land more than 04 acres (04 acres & 31 guntha) surrounding by natural beauty.

Higher education facilities being merge around, we have decided to extend facilities further by providing additional school building Laboratory, Library, Sports-room, Office-room, Staff-room & big playground on Taluka level etc.

From 1980-81 academic year we have started secondary school by name Raja Shivaji Vidhyalaya Vilawade. At present Government of Maharashtra issued a grant to our school teaching staff & non-teaching staff, now our goal is to develop our school into junior college, but for this purpose, our institution is facing financial problem. The above fact is to help to restrict the urban students from migrating to cities thus preventing them from taking hard strained. Hence we appeal to you to help for this noble cause by extending financial help generously.

16. How do you perceive that education will improve the lives of children in your village?

 

      The education change humans life is a fact. Educated person read, write & think of good idea. Educated children improved their studies & get the knowledge of village, state and country. In the world due to education, the children are going in the big cities and getting good job in the offices or any big manufacturing company. They earn more, they learn many advanced techniques which obiviously, raised their standard of living high. And all this is possible because of education. Thus, this is the major difference between educated and non-educated children. Hence we assured that due to hard-working and gaining better facilities these students not only gain their high morale but also get an opportunity to show their mental- ability, skills etc to the outside world.

If our children get advanced teaching in the school, definitely our children will improve the standard of the village in all respect e.g. farming, industrial aspects, living standard, transportation, education etc.

28. Any additional details you would like to provide to us.

 

      Yes, Our clay wall school building is now near about 20 years old & have to be repaired. Our school is granted by the State Govervment. Pay & allowances paid by the State Government to school Staff. Due to lack of advance teaching we cannot produced a bright student. We were getting some amount from the government earlier as non-salary grant as 12% of the total payment per year of the school staff. This amount was first spend for purchasing school items, science laboratory practical instruments, stationary etc. by the institution & then putup the claim to the government for re-imbursed. But, since last 04 years government stop this scheme due to financial problem. Therefore, our institution burden now has been increased to provide these items to the school every year. Institution have no income source permanently & try to borrow some amounts from the members of the institution on refund basis for the above activities.
