Development of rural villages

Janaseva Foundation has adopted 3 rural villages to be developed as Adarsh Gram. In these villages population consists of mostly elderly as young generations has shifted to the cities. Every week our ambulances visit various villages and senior citizens and others are checked in their own homes since last 28 tears.

Under this programme toilets are being built, proper roads, water and sanitation are being improved and water filters are provided to each senior citizen. Schools are provided eLearning kits. Foundation distributed saplings of fruit trees with help from Rotary Club of Pimpri. Elderly are imparted information on how to open bank accounts, agriculture and associated occupations.
