Adopted Village Scheme
Introduction: Agriculture is the backbone of Indian economy. Thus real India resides in villages. Until and unless villages are developed socially, economically and politically, we cannot progress as a developed country. If we want to make our mark at international level as a super power we must concentrate on the development of villages.
The current situation of Indian village is really a drastic one. When we think about Maharashtra State there are one crore twenty five lakhs forty four thousand seven hundred ninety seven families are living in village. They are facing number of problems so regarding this scenario our college decided to adopt four nearby villages namely Gimona, Malapur, Mangul and Antargaon.
To make the villagers aware about socio-economic problems.
To help them to solve their problems regarding education of their children.
To make them sensitize about cleanliness, hygiene and environment protection
Maximum students admitted to our college are from nearby villages only. They are the first generation of their families who took education and try to complete their graduation and post-graduation. Their parents and guardians are illiterate farmers, laborers, working at farm and elsewhere. So they are suffering from many educational problems. So at least to make them aware about following issues we adopted above mentioned four villages
- to maintain their hygiene and cleanliness.
- to support them to get the benefits of government policies.
- to empower the woman socially and economically by helping them to start Self-help Group.
- to take a survey and to forward it to the government.
