CASE STUDIES

VILLAGE: Bavi

In 2013, Maharashtra was affected by a severe drought, considered as the region’s worst in 50 years. The situation had been so bad that only a litre of water would be available for usage for a person each day, for all activities.

We were alert to the worsening situation in these drought-hit areas and responded swiftly to the need for relief and care. We adopted the village of Bavi in Beed district of Maharashtra and undertook water storage projects aimed at developing sustainable irrigation and drinking water sources such as man-made lakes, which would provide a source of drinking water for the entire village and for future generations to use. We also banned fishing in these lakes, so as to preserve the life of fish.

 

TESTIMONIALS

“It was an immense pleasure to have the volunteers from Shrimad Rajchandra Love and Care for this Shramyajna. They helped improve the morale of all of us. The seva that was done by the group was unique. Most of the groups that come would work for 5 - 10 minutes and then take rest, unlike the SRLC volunteers who would work for almost 2 hours without thinking of their physical condition. It was so nice to see their dedication at work. The volunteers were very responsive to the problems of the people and also played a role in inculcating moral values in them. I am grateful to Pujya Gurudevshri for His compassion and sending His team of volunteers for the cause.”

REPORTS

Shrimad Rajchandra Grow Green Drive

Trees are a source of life, sustaining and nourishing all life forms, showering all with the gifts of oxygen, food and shelter. Trees help in erosion control, water retention and enhance soil properties. Trees help in reducing the ambient temperature and in providing a serene backdrop that beautifies the surroundings. It is rightly said that trees do not need us; however we do need them. By planting trees, we provide an opportunity for life to thrive.

Shrimad Rajchandra Love and Care, under the Environmental Care Programme, on the occasion of World Environment Day, organised Shrimad Rajchandra Grow Green Drive - Rooted with Love, a mega tree plantation drive. In the gracious presence of Pujya Gurudevshri and other dignitaries like Shri Ashishbhai Vyas - Renowned Kathakar; Smt. Sumitraben Chaudhari - President, Dharampur Nagarpalika; Dr. Daulatbhai Desai - President, Shri Ramkrishna Mission Dharampur and Shri Sureshbhai Vyas - Range Forest Officer, Dharampur taluka. This was truly befitting as the Sadguru Prerna project will not only provide an abode for thousands of seekers but will ensure that the environment is conducive for spiritual nourishment through natural beauty. As the Ashram landscape takes a beautiful turn, trees and natural habitat will add to its splendour, providing seekers with areas where they can delve within, in the tranquility of nature.
