We can do it......
We can do it...... (1/14)

We have initated social organization with name of Sanman Samajik Bauuddeshiya Sanstha (SSBS) and also registered same with Government as per regulation. 

At present we have no funds or any other resourses. we are working with comittment and devotation for social cause. 

We have started to provide clothes, school iteams, groceries, toys etc. with support of local citizens to needy and poor communities during COVID19 and still this Care For All Drive is continue.

Some people & agencies have come forward and provided support to our organization after observing our devotion and efforts for needy and poor communities.

We have started some programs and projects for empowerment of community people & village development at around regions as per need of communities.

Shivprasad Kulkarni, appreciated our work and decided to do join his initative Shiv Vidya Pratishthan, Public Trust,  with our organization for community empowerment and also donated his four wheeler vechile for organizational work. 

We have rented place for Community center, which we want to replicate in other blocks and districts and already initiated efforts for same. 

Presently we are using community center as a space for children to study,  to learn new skills & for recreation,  also to organize training programs for youth and women groups, as counselling center for needy women,  and for livelihood activities etc. There was absolute need of make over of the center as general and also to  more gender friendly space for community groups. 

We requested people to support us for social cause. Some people gave support in kind and some in financial terms. 

The cleaning of all walls and painting for all walls of center was essential. All of you know that before and after paininting of walls  there are number of tasks, and it was costly for us to appoint some one to do the same. 

Finally we have decided to do all work on own and we prepared a plan of action. Our team members- Maya Vanjari, Shashikant Salve, Santosh Vanjari & myself and our youth took charge of situation and finally we completed the task.

Thanks to all for your support and for trusting our efforts for communities. Still we need support in all terms as our struggle is going on.

Dear Shilpa,
It is incredible to think that people were ready to help, But they didn't have a medium to do so. You created a medium, gave people the platform to help, and now the wheels of social change and impact are turning. It is encouraging to hear of all the people who have believed in your initiative and got on board, to see the generosity and commitment to reach the needy even when times are uncertain. It is a reminder to not be limited by external circumstances, but pursue our passion believing that doors will open.

Good on you and your team! Thank you for sharing. It is an inspiring story for the start of the year! We look forward to reading your updates on how this community space grows as the year matures.
All the best!

You are doing important work supporting the children and women in your community. The support and guidance you are providing will make a positive impact on young, impressionable lives and they will hopefully take this blessing and pay it forward in multiples. You are changing the world, one person at a time. Congratulations!
