Social Initiatives

Shri Dev Vetoba Devasthan has been an integral part of various public initiatives for few decades now. It has constantly extended its support for several social and welfare activities in Aravali - be it educational, medical or any other deserving cause. Here, briefly, are some of the social activities undertaken or supported by the Devasthan:
Aravali Vaidyakiya Sanshodhan Kendra
Shri Dev Vetoba Devasthan partly sponsors a scheme to help the downtrodden. The Devasthan donates a certain amount of the interest it earns on fixed deposits to Aravali Vaidyakiya Sanshodhan Kendra, which is run by Aravali Vikas Mandal. The donation helps Aravali’s poor and needy villagers to get treatments at the hospital for their diseases and illnesses.
Gram Gyana Vardhini Kendra
The Devasthan launched Gram Gyana Vardhini Kendra in its premises with the aim of dispensing education. In collaboration with G. T. L. Foundation, it started training classes to give basic computer education to students from 1st to 8th standards. The Foundation has donated 6 computers for the classes. The initiative was launched with the aim of making village boys and girls familiar with computers at minimum expense. The nominal fee per student is Rs 30 per month.
Lalji Desai Sangeet Vidyalaya
To encourage village youngsters to learn classical singing, tabla and other instruments, the Devasthan started this music school. In addition to giving the space and paying electricity charges, it also provides the school various musical instruments. A teacher from Sadguru Sangeet Vidyalaya has been appointed to give the training.
Annachhatra Scheme
About 18 months back, the Devasthan started an Annachhatra scheme in its premises to provide full meals at a nominal price. Under the scheme, any devotee may donate Rs 2000, fill a form, specify a date, and on that day, every year, the devotee’s name is put on the board. And people can get a meal for Rs 5 on a coupon. If the donor and his family are present in temple premises on that day, they are treated as guests. Otherwise, their prasad in the form of angara (holi ash) and a flower is mailed to them. So far the temple has collected Rs 12 lakh under the scheme, as against the target of Rs 25 lakh.
Cultural Programmes
To encourage village children, the Devasthan organises various cultural programmes at Gogte Rangamanch or in temple’s sabhamandap.
