Project Description

Asha's funding is used for the one year DBRT course. We are also considering funding spreading the vigyan ashram model to other high schools in the area.

Organization Description

Vigyan Ashram located in Pabal near Khed is about 80 km and a 2 hr drive from Pune. Vigyan Ashram was started about 25 years ago by Dr. Kalbag with the intention of creating an education system that is relevant to rural needs. The methodology for teaching was to be based on hands on learning and the use of scientific thinking. The culmination of his and Vigyan Ashram's efforts are an NIOS approved 1-year course, DBRT (Diploma for Basic Rural Technology) as well as a 3 year school curriculum for 8th, 9th and 10th standard students, IBT (Introduction to Basic Technology). Vigyan Ashram continues to update the curriculum through need-based drivers. Vigyan Ashram also runs a residential program for older students as well as a Balwadi. -

Jun 2004Project Proposal
  • If it is towards a project that is currently being supported, it will go towards the budget that was already approved for that project from its funding chapter. It will not be in addition to the approved budget.
  • If it is towards a project that is currently being supported, for something that is not covered in the budget that was approved, it has to be approved at a chapter before the funds can be sent.
  • In either case, the website has to be updated with the budget proposal and other details before funds can be sent.
  • If the project is not actively supported by AFE currently, the funds will be used towards other projects.

  • For clarifications on this policy, please contact projects [at] ashanet [dot] org
