About the Charity
Vidyarthi Sahayyak Samiti (VSS) is a Non-Government and Non-Profit Organization with the sole objective of providing homely and conducive atmosphere to deprived and meritorious students. VSS came into existence in 1971 by Prof. Madhukar D. Uplenchwar with the help of some generous groups of people to provide assistance to educationally deprived boys & girls. Their motto is Motivation of students for human excellence The purpose of VSS is to reach bright students in remote places who are not able to continue their education due to lack of resources. They feel that if these students do not continue their higher and professional education due to poverty, it is a national loss. VSS works in this direction and has a lot of stories of such students who are now highly qualified and working at different places. The past students of VSS have opened hostels at 4 different places in Maharashtra. This is one of their best achievements and a matter of immense pride and satisfaction.
VSS is opening a new branch at Hinganghat, Maharashtra. This location will have a hostel cum knowledge centre where various educational activities will be carried out for residential as well as non-residential students. The Hinganghat branch will have 4 classrooms, a Reading Hall and a Science Laboratory. It will house a Computer Training Centre with 5-10 computers having a capacity to teach around 230 students. There will be a big playground for students with facilities to play various sports. Many of their students even play at the state level in some sports. Some of the activities that will be conducted at this centre are: Yoga classes, Personality Development, Group discussion on character building, IIT foundation coaching and many more. The initial cost of setting up the educational centre is approximately Rs.7 lakhs. YVO has channelized the funds received for November 2018 to partially fund this project.
