  • Educational Care:
    • Shrimad Rajchandra Gurukul Tops Std. 12 Exams with 93% Passing Percentage:
      • Due to COVID-19 lockdown, students had very little time to prepare for the standard 12 board exams in 2021-2022.
      • In addition, issues with broadband connectivity and electricity made studying even more difficult for the students.
      • In order to assist students in passing their exams, sevarpits and volunteers stepped up to tutor them, based on their requirements.
      • The efforts led to outstanding results; with Shrimad Rajchandra Gurukul students achieving a 93% passing rate, compared to 72% passing in Gujarat, 58% passing in Valsad and 57% in Dharampur.
      • Shrimad Rajchandra Gurukul’s percentage is the highest amongst 240 areas in and around Dharampur and is the top amongst private schools in Valsad.
    • Tie-up with the Centre for Entrepreneurship Development (CED):
      • The Centre for Entrepreneurship Development (CED) is a premier organisation of the Government of Gujarat engaged in entrepreneurship development training since 1979 and skill development since 2009, the first of this kind in the country.
      • The concept behind CED is to develop entrepreneurs in the urban as well as rural areas of the state, who can establish their own enterprise (trading/service/manufacturing)
      • Due to lack of guidance and information, rural people often take loans but are unable to repay them due to the losses they incur in business.
      • Shrimad Rajchandra Love and Care and CED entered into an MOU whereby it shall be an empanelment agency for entrepreneurship training programme in South Gujarat.
      • This MOU will help develop entrepreneurial talent across different groups of people over 18 years – comprising students, dropouts, women, farmers or people wishing to gain skills for any other industry.
      • This partnership will benefit the entire rural community in developing their overall standard of living by providing opportunities of self-employment by way of imparting entrepreneurial skills.
      • Expert-level training will be given to village-level entrepreneurs in fields like production, pricing, accounting, marketing, legal permissions, recruitment, customer care for manufacturing and services sectors.
      • The introductory programme under this joint initiative witnessed participation from over 200 students from Shrimad Rajchandra Vidyapeeth and Shrimad Rajchandra Skill Development Centre.
      • A 15-day entrepreneurship development programme was conducted for 80 students from Shrimad Rajchandra Skill Development Centre.
      • In the long term, ‘Special Entrepreneurship Training with 360 Approach’ shall also be organised.
      • The youth of Dharampur and Kaprada Talukas show resistance to migrating to other towns/cities for lucrative employment opportunities. They have a tendency to remain within their comfort zone.
      • The two organisations will also work on a scheme for skill development which provides financial support to skill drop out youth of the Dharampur and surrounding areas.
  • Woman Care:
    • Women of Raj Uphaar win the ‘Social Entrepreneurship with Heart’ award
