Usage of funds

Every amount you donate will be utilized against the achievement of the following:

Vidyaloke: In its literal sense it means the ‘light of knowledge’. The foundation has rekindled interest in Indian wisdom in an eclectic mix of people in the cities of Mumbai and Delhi. Indian wisdom cannot be attributed to a religion and thus its propagation is not a religious activity. Indian wisdom is deeply rooted in spirituality which too is not religion specific. We have tried to send the message of introspection and meditation to assist us all in discovering our true being and how we can uplift ourselves in this life. The sessions at these events are led by a Guru to facilitate understanding and assimilation.

Indian Culture: Indian culture is a manifestation of its fine and performance arts, languages, dresses and our conduct in the way we greet and meet each other. Through the platform of ‘Vidyaloke’, we have showcased Indian music and Indian art through its highly accomplished and acclaimed practitioners in the three events at Mumbai and Delhi.

Indian Farming: Vanakrishi as the initiative of Vana Foundation, aims to:-

  • Initiate farmers to practice and adoption of organic means of cultivation.
  • Educate Indian farmers to augment their incomes through dairy, poultry and bee keeping as part of their endeavour within a relatively small space in their farms.
  • Train farmers in an innovatively designed ‘Vana Krishi Vidyapeeth’. This will have elements of dairy, poultry, learning centre, lab for soil testing and a learning hall to seat up to 50 farmers. Some of the infrastructure is already in place. Ground breaking for the rest will start very soon.
  • Vana Krishi in due course of time will be a pan India initiative. To begin with we have started to reach out to the farmers throughout the length and breadth of Uttarakhand with the aim of:-
    1. Mobilising the farmers into functional arrangement of ‘Farmers Self Help Groups’ and their federation.
    2. Sensitising and motivating farmers into adoption of organic and diversified practices.
