Rural Development




Primary schools lack facilities and are poorly maintained. The Trust has set up a primary school at Wakod village. A kindergarten has recently been commissioned at the R&D Farms, Jalgaon. The boys and girls are provided with free uniforms and books.

The SNJB Polytechnic College at Chandwad, Dist. Nasik, has rendered yomen service to the region. A Junior Urdu College was established in the memory of ‘Shaikh Noor Mohd. Chacha’ – a person who had been an inspiring support to Jains in their formative years. Donations are made for English, Urdu, Marathi school buildings & hostels.

Assistance is given for publications of books & literary seminars. Students & professors aspiring for higher studies and participation in conferences, at home or abroad, get financial assistance. Scholarships are routinely offered to the deserving students.

A Potentials Development Academy has been established for encouraging high school students to appear in the state and national level competitive exams. It has achieved outstanding results. The students who have topped the merit list in the state level are gifted a full set of encyclopedia each.

Jain Foundation has established a High-Tech Agro Development & Training Centre. The Centre is conducting training programmes in the field of agronomy, irrigation and pre & post harvest technologies as well as crop protection. These programmes will be for extension workers, farm engineers and agro extension & research government & semi-government institutions.

The Centre may conduct fundamental research into gene manipulation. It may develop and adapt varieties for different crops.

To encourage inventive genius, the DIPEX ’92 & ’93 were promoted by the Foundation.

Jains firmly hold that a human being is not a human being, in the proper sense, till he is educated.
