1. On 11th December 1964, the 2nd President of India, Late Dr. SarvapallyRadhakrishnan
laid the foundation stone of Ramakrishna Ashrama , Gwalior. Ever since, the Ramakrishna
Ashrama , Gwalior has been engaged in serving the nation by way of serving the needy
sections of our people with the essential services that they ought to get but which
they are lacking, in the fields of Education, Health, Social Welfare etc in tune with
the teachings of Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda that Service to Man Is Truly
Worship of God.
2. The main campus of our Gwalior Ashrama , spread over an area of around 10 acres is located
at prime locality, Thatipur, Gwalior. One School affiliated to CBSE, a SangeetMahavidyalaya, a
Medical Health Unit, a Library, and a School for mentally retarded children, are among the main
activities running here.
3. The second campus, started in 1990, the Sharada Bal Gram,
Ramakrishna Ashrama , covering an area of around 50 acres, is located on Sachin Tendulkar Marg, Gwalior. Here
the Ramakrishna Vidya Mandir provides free boarding, lodging, education etc facilities
to 150+ orphan students (around 100 boys and 50 girls). The School is affiliated to the
Madhya Pradesh Board of Education. The Students of nearby locality also avail the facilities
as day scholars.
4. The existing physical, Intellectual, Professional infrastructure of Sharada Bal Gram needs repair,
upgradation and maintenance to keep pace with the times. The need for financial assistance from public
funds of PUC and Corporate India is immediate and imperative to enable us to continue to provide quality
service to the needy sections of our people.
5. Future of the nation depends on the quality, capability, confidence and character of our Youth.
It is our moral and national duty to strengthen and shape the Youth-energy so that they grow up into
good citizens full of human values, national pride and the burning desire to take India among the top
in the world community of nations, as prophesied by our great Swami Vivekananda over a century back.
We propose to target the School/college youths to train them in the field of skill development,
agriculture, horticulture, bee keeping, dairy, food processing etc. The training will be imparted
through impressive techno-savvy Motivation Building Workshops. In this way, the different aspects of
human life will be presented before the youth to emulate and to enable them to take our country forward
in the current century, which in words of Swami Vivekananda is the Century of Asian-resurgence.
6. We seek procedural-guidance for financial support under CSR from various corporate, PSU, Nationalised banks to
meet the expenses for equipping the venue for holding the workshops, seminars, lectures, renovation work and other
infrastructure developmental activities. Remuneration for the resource persons (including the cost of their travels,
boarding & lodging etc); cost of training material, accommodation, fooding, character-building in a holistic environment
will have to be considered. Latest equipments in the field of Community Radio, Campus Surveillance, Internal Roads,
Jogging Tracks (For Senior Citizens), Polymer Waterproofing Work, Upgrade Living Standards, Biomass based burning stoves
for Cooking, Skill Development, Computer Labs with Building, Solar tube wells, Agriculture, Horticulture, Dairy, Milking
and Dairy product processing units,Vermicompost, Mushroom, Jivaamrut Preparation, Organic Farming Training Centre etc will
have to be procured. Details will be worked out and submitted, once this proposal is accepted in principle.
7. We earnestly request to one and all to help us to reach out to the generous donors, corporate, well-wishers, philanthropic
organizations, financial sectors.
