Announcing a $500,000 gift to AIM for Seva by Sri Jugal and Smt Bimla Kishor
Shri Jugal and Bimla Kishor, from Pleasanton California have committed to $500,000 towards construction of Swami Dayananda Residential School and Free Student Hostel (FSH) complex located on a land of 5 acres in the village of Padali in Khargone District of Madhya Pradesh. A rural ambulance service and health sanitation program for the local community will also be provided.
Jugal & Bimla’s own words: We had been praying very hard & earnestly to God to show us a way to help in the all India Movement for Seva in a meaningful way. Mainly because it was founded by Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati which needed no introductions and any credibility related assurances. We strongly felt that we must contribute towards the upliftment of human life through the process of education that gets imparted to those students who have no means in any sense of the worldly resources. It took us five years to decide. Finally, January 25th, 2018 was that historical day for us when our prayers resulted in the actual Bhumi Puja in a village of MP named Padali Khurd in the vicinity of a well-known holy place & lord Siva’s iconic temple Omkereshwar. It is an extreme backward tribal area about two hours’ drive from Indore and has potential to be a huge campus for educational opportunities for the genuine needy & economically deprived people. Both Bimla & I remain totally committed to fund it for an earliest possible launch, may be by 2019 end. That would be grand offering & a memorial for our parents late Sh. Dharma & Shanti Dogra of New Delhi.

Free Student Hostel Sponsored by Smt. Kaveri Rangaraj
In Kaveri’s own words:
I grew up observing children who were smart but unfortunate because they were poor and did not have the means to get an education and lift themselves and their families out of the cycle of poverty and petty labor jobs. I wanted to give back to my motherland from where I got so much, my education, opportunity to come to the US, and make a good life for myself and my family. The best way to give I felt, was to give a gift of education to the underprivileged children, so they have the means to uplift themselves. This is a gift to benefit the future generations and is long lasting.
I felt that it was like pouring ghee into a lamp to light the flame – the flame of education
