Skill Development

Tailoring and Computer class - In Ratnagiri

Ratnagiri, Maharashtra

Mukul Madhav Foundation started computer classes for the women of the Gramin Mahila Vikas Kendra at Phansop, Ratnagiri and mothers of the students at Mukul Madhav Vidyalaya. The course began in July 2013, in our school premises at Ratnagiri and is being offered at a subsidized cost. The school's computer teacher is conducting these classes in which women are being taught basic computer operations and Microsoft Office.

We also organized a 'handicraft workshop' for the women of the Gramin Mahila Vikas Kendra, in an attempt to provide rural women with an opportunity to maximize their income generation potential.

We have been actively running the tailoring classes since 2008. A six-month certified course from Community polytechnic under Government Polytechnic, Ratnagiri is taught to 25 women per batch. Till date over 400 women have benefitted from these classes. Clothes sewn are donated to expectant mothers in the Government Hospitals of Ratnagiri.

Tailoring and Computer class - In Masar

Mukul Madhav Foundation and Finolex Industries Ltd inaugurated skill development centres in 2 remote villages of Masar and Abhor, in Gujarat, on the 15th of September 2016.

This course is taught by trained professionals hired by Finolex Industries from a local NGO, Shree Charitable Trust, Baroda. This program aims to empower at least 20 women in each course, at each centre.

The two corporates have together distributed 1,600 helmets and face masks to the Pune Traffic Police men and women. To mark the occasion, a 36 km Road Safety Rally was organized on 15 January 2017.

The event witnessed participation from officials of Pune Police and Traffic Police department, employees of Finolex Pipes and Gulf Oil Lubricants, along with bike enthusiasts from the city.

The volunteers and participants of the rally created awareness on the necessity of following traffic rules and regulations for a smooth and congestion-free free driving experience.

Bhatkya Vimut Jati Shikshan Sanstha (BVJSS) Ashram Shala in Wagholi, Pune (June 2016) :

With the help of Gulf Oil (Mr. Sanjay Hinduja), ZF Steering Gear India Ltd. (Mr. Utkarsh Munot), Indo Global Infrastructure & Utility Services Pvt. Ltd (Mr. Sanjiv Aurora) and Finolex Industries, MMF successfully raised 29.25 Lacs for the Bhatkya Vimut Jati Shikshan Sanstha (BVJSS) Ashram Shala in Wagholi, Pune, which is an orphanage housing 400 children. With the help of these funds, we helped rebuild their 4 kitchens, dining area, water proofing of the entire house, purchased new cupboards, repaired existing doors and windows and placed new ones where needed and donated 60 bunk-beds, 120 mattresses & pillows, 8 cupboards, 400 uniforms, 400 bedsheets with pillow covers and 400 Sholapuri chaddars for the children. We also painted the Sai Baba statue outside this ashram. It was indeed a heartwarming experience to see the children enjoy the new, better and safer conditions.

Further to this, Mr. and Mrs. Manish Jaitha of Jivraj Baloo Trust donated Rs. 5 Lacs, to begin a vocational project of goat farming, in a second home of BVJSS in Pabal, Maharashtra (35 kms further from Wagholi) where 50 children, who are mentally or physically-challenged reside.
