History & Evolution

India has a great heritage of at least 5000 years. Indian life style was developed into self reliant villages. Even today 65 to 70% of the Indian population is located in 6 lakh villages. Agriculture & animal husbandry is the main occupation of this population.

Urbanization & industrialization policy adopted after independence has created many problems both in urban and rural India. Urban population is facing serious problems of overcrowding, traffic jams, unhealthy busy life style, pollution hazards. Slums are increasing and population in slums is leading an unhygienic life.

On the other hand rural counterpart is deprived of basic needs related to road connectivity, clean drinking water and unavailability of daily commodities, educational facilities, medical aid and employment to youth. The result is migration of youth towards cities for higher education and job opportunities. The major setback is observed in agriculture sector. Senior villagers & ladies are mainly engaged into agriculture. They practice traditional methods of agriculture.

Government machinery has reached villages but necessary & efficient services are rarely provided due to typical bureaucratic approach. Knowledge developed in cities does not reach the rural counterpart of the society.

Prof. Anil Vyas staying in Mumbai realized the problem and decided to initiate the issue. He came in contact with Balasaheb Gaikwad from village Lawale in Mulshi tehsil. They both formed a group of XI members related to Mulshi tehsil by way of business, social work, residence and formed the trust in the name of “Rashtriya Sarvangin Gramvikas Sanstha”. Initiation meeting of the organization was held at the residence of Shri Mohanrao Ghasas, the founder President.

The main objective of the organization is to bridge the gap. To reduce migration of youth to cities by providing need based services related to education-health-agriculture-self employment generation. Rural development activities can be initiated in different villages with trained batch of such local youth.

Actual field work started with the arranging a farmers gathering on 11th May 1995. During the campaigning of farmers gathering Survey of different villages was conducted. About 20 villages were visited in a period of one month. Needs of villages were identified.

5 villages separated from the rest of the tehsil, due to geographical positioning were identified during survey. The children from these villages used to cross the river and go to school after the 4th std. Girls education used to stop at this level itself because crossing the river and walking through muddy fields was not an easy task especially in rainy season. The villagers & local govt. officials (Sarpanch) requested to start the school at Asde. A class room for 5th std. was available. Local youth Vijay Bharam had completed required qualification. Thus school was inaugurated on 1st June 1995. Getting government recognition was a difficult task, during this period. Sou. Vimalabai Garware Vidyalaya from Pune supported us. After a struggle of 4 years we got permission in 1999.

In 1996 Shri Chintamani Chitale (Mani) came in contact with the organization. He wanted to initiate some activities in Pirangut. We decided to start a hostel at Pirngut for Xi & XII students. Hostel at Pirangut started with 4 students in August 1996. In 1997 the strength became 10. This hostel was in operation from 1996 up to 2008. Due to easy accessibility & good road condition, the need of hostel was reduced. We decided to discontinue this hostel activity. Urbanization of Pirangut has started and need for students Sanskar Varg was realized in 2008. From 2008 we are running sanskar varg for 2 hrs in evening for local children.

During 1995-99 school was growing in terms of students & teachers strength. Building construction was also increasing. Government permission was granted in 1999.

During 2000-02 we completed the construction of school in 2 phases. In 2002 we had 6 classrooms, office, and teachers’ room. During this period we had established our school and major construction work was also completed. We decided to extend our activities. We had realized that many students in remote villages are not able to continue their education after the 4th standard. We identified such villages and collected the information of such students.

We started 2 hostels at village Male and village Shileshwar. The capacity of each hostel is about 15-20. Shri Mahesh Mohol took charge of hostel at Shileshwar. The Male hostel was looked after by Shri Avinash Sahasrabudhe. The first generation of these villages started getting education.

We started realizing that students should get exposure to various professional courses. They should get elementary education useful to fulfill their daily needs. We decided to introduce a basic course of introduction to basic technology evolved Vignyashram Pabal. It was introduced in 2006. The course has 4 sections viz, engineering, energy, home science, agriculture and veterinary science. A team of 4 trainers with Vasant Borade as in charge took the responsibility. Government grants for teachers started at the end of 2006. Major part of our budget was being spent on the teacher’s salary. We could divert the funds for other projects. In 2007 we appointed a full time project coordinator to look after various projects and to search new avenues. Shri. Pradeep Patil was appointed as the project coordinator . Shri Subhash Kunte donated an industrial plot measuring 512 sq.mts. We decided to start a vocational training centre. Actual construction started at the end of 2008 and is nearing completion by 2010 May. This centre will be our central office. All activities will be controlled from this office.

The activities to be under taken in this centre will be,

  • Vocational training
  • Counseling centre
  • Employment exchange
  • Training center

During 2008-09 we started Sakhar Shala for children of temporary migrants during rubby season. 2 such centers were run at Male & Disli villages. In Feb 2007, we organized our Tapopurty program in Garware college. Smt. Sindhutai Sapkal was the chief guest and about 600 Punekars and Mulshikars attended the program. We felicitated various organizations & individual dignitaries associated with the organization. In 2008 Feb we started our women empowerment section.
