As part of Suryodaya’s recently completed project, a floor has been donated to the HIV-happy Indian village in Latur, an orphanage where HIV-positive children stay and attend school. A symbolic inauguration was done by Shri Bhagat Singh Koshyariji, Governor of Maharashtra. HIV Village also called Happy Indian Village is home to almost 100 HIV-positive children in Latur. It is run by Ravikant Bapatle since 2008 and provides food, shelter, medication and education to these kids so they can become independent. Several partner foundations are working with Suryodaya to sponsor the education of these children. Our founder, Anuradhaji is working to raise funds, support and awareness for these children, who are featured in our new Ganpati song “He Gajanana,” sung by Anuradha Paudwal.
Despite considerable improvement in education, the struggle of students in villages and interiors of the country remains tough. Suryodaya Foundation has pledged to resurrect nine schools in Raigad district which were disrupted due to Tropical cyclones Nisarga and Tauktae that devastated Maharashtra in 2020 and 2021 respectively.
Our immediate objective is to help the nine cyclone-affected schools by renovating and rebuilding their damaged infrastructure. We intend to further create an encouraging learning environment for more than 3,500 students, who are studying in these schools.
In the past, Suryodaya Foundation has delivered books and bicycles to students, who come from far off areas to school, easing their path to education.
For the cyclone-affected schools, we are gathering funds to support purchase of aids and materials that will enhance the quality of education. Our current objectives include purchase of computers, LCD projectors, tubes, fans, and electrical components.
We are also procuring funds for reconstruction and renovation of school segments that were extensively damaged by the cyclones. We are thankful to our generous supporters Osis Decor Pvt Ltd, Barwale Group of Industries, Anish Jhaveri, His Holiness Dr. Syedna Taher Memorial Fund and NCB Jewellers n Sons, Kolkotta.
Suryodaya Foundation’s efforts towards education is all about supporting students in the rural areas of Maharashtra, who often do not have the necessary amenities for their schooling. We intend to create detailed plans for rebuilding schools the remaining schools and our team will work in a strategic manner to prevent duplication of worth and efforts.
