2. Why is our organization a different?

Our organization is quite different because it is not a lodging, boarding hostel for poor students, but it is a character building activity. Every student work with Social and National responsibility while performing his duties. Motivation of the students during their hostel stay is of prime importance to us and as such our organization is quite different. Personal love and affection with each student is our pecualirity.

We are helping the students for their higher and professional education even after he is a hostel pass out and provide him fatherly affection.

Their family is very much attached personally to my family and we have “GURU- SHISHYA PARAMPARA” which is a proud one in Indian Culture. My students celebrated my 60th birthday by offering a GURU DAKHSHINA of Rs. 60000 /- in 1998 with a very big celebration in the presence of the families of the past students and our donors. Also they offered another GURU DAKHSHINA of an Indica Car to me on my 70th birthday in December 2008. Every Year we get Rs. 6 Lakhs from our past students for hostel mess expenses. This may help you to believe that our organization is a quite different one. This is the reason that CARING FRIENDS MUMBAI helps us a lot.

3. Why should a donor donate to our organization?

We are working in a small town of 60,000 population in a semi-tribal district Chandrapur of Maharashtra. Our students are from very remote areas from a far distance and also from tribal area of surrounding districts. We are reaching not only to the poor but in so many cases the poorest of the poor, but with brilliant carrier. Some of them have no father. Our organization does not accept any Government fund/ aid, as it is our principle. We believe that if the depth of the work can touch the heart of the socially oriented persons, people will support us.
