RECENT  MAJOR  DONATIONS 


Announcing a $500,000 gift to AIM for Seva by Sri Jugal and Smt Bimla Kishor

It gives us great pleasure in announcing one of the largest individual donations to AIM for Seva.

Jugal and Bimla Kishor, from Pleasanton California have committed to $500,000 to complete the first phase of the ambitious school and Free Student Hostel (FSH) complex located in the Petlawadi town in Jhabua district in the state of Madhya Pradesh

The sheer size of the donation is impressive in itself. But what makes this extra special is that it is the fulfillment of a long-term guiding vision of Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati. The basic plan of AIM for Seva is to build FSHs near existing schools. However, in Swamiji’s village of Manjakudi in Tamil Nadu, this plan has blossomed to a remarkable degree, transforming the entire area around it. From a small, agricultural village, Manjakudi now has: Tamil medium High School – 1,400 students, 50% girls, English medium High School – 400 students, 50% girls, Arts and Science College up to Masters degree – 1,200 students, 70% girls, four Free Student Hostels, two for girls and two for boys, WIPRO back office – 150 engineers, 50% recruitment from local college, computer labs, Veda Pathashala, Organic Garden, Large Auditorium, and more. Plus, a bus system to transport 6,000 people in and out of  Manjukudi every day!

Pujya Swamiji wanted to duplicate this mega-facility in other parts of the country, preferably in North India. Land was acquired some time back under the leadership of Swami Aishvaryananda. Right up to taking mahasamadhi, Swamiji kept inquiring into the status of this complex. But no one had come forward to make the commitment, until now. Sri and Smt Kishor had been thinking of starting a FSH for some time now. Just in the last few weeks, our US CEO, Srini Raman, went over the significance of this project with the Kishors in great detail. This area in western Madhya Pradesh, bordering Gujarat is full of adivasis and forest dwellers. There is very little by way of school infrastructure, making communities constant targets for conversions.

As Jugal and Bimla started to grasp the enormity of potential, they made the decision: let us do it. The proposal to initially build school with 17 classrooms, plus a 2-story Free Student Hostel for girls came to $500,000. They signed off 2 weeks back. We are happy to report that architectural work has already started. Bhumi Puja is also scheduled for January 25 at Petlawadi. We invite you to kindly participate on this auspicious occasion.

We are enormously grateful for the Kishors’ vision and generosity. Our hope is that over time many of us can coalesce our support for this potentially huge undertaking such that Petlawadi in MP transforms the whole area around it, becoming another Manjakudi, in fulfilling the vision of the founder of AIM for Seva, Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati.
Harih Om, Vijay
