Help  to Charmakar students to prepare for IAS/IPS Exams at Pune
(Pune -Jan-March 2014 ):

   Dr Dandge, Founder President, ROSA has long been pursuing a thought to help out Charmakar Students who aspire to become IAS, IPS, IRS, IFS officers but could not follow up their dream for want of adequate financial support. The issue was discussed at a meeting of ROSA held at Nagpur on Dec.12,2013 on the occasion of felicitation of Shri. Sanjay Sawkare on his induction as a Minister. Other MLAs of Charmakar Samaj were also present on the occasion. Dr. Dandge got assurance from community's MLAs to support such students. Some industrialists and businessmen also expressed willingness to sponsor such deserving students.

   Subsequently, meetings were held at Mumbai (Hotel Kohinoor, Prabhadevi-Jan 21,2014), Pune (Hotel Ritugandh, Shivajinagar-Jan 31,2014 & Feb 8, 2014) and Pachgani, Satara (March 3,2014) with brainstorming sessions to hammer out the issue. It was accepted to form a Trust to handle such matter. It was suggested to name the Trust as the "Guru Ravidas Academy of Higher Education for IAS/IPS" (GRAHE). Babanrao Gholap (Ex-Minister), Arjunrao Bobde, Rajendra Dhavale (both prominent business persons), Ashokrao Khade (noted industrialist), Vasant Koregaonkar (Rtd IPS), Rajesh Karande (Business), Subhash N. Saundankar (Rtd Judge), Dr. P.K. Ingle (Scientist), Vithalrao P. Waghmare (Engineer) accepted responsibility to provide necessary infrastructure and needful monitory support at Pune for this educational project.

    Going ahead with the project, 6 students including 2 girls have started taking advantage of GRAHE since mid-2014. Boys have been provided with a private hostel accommodation, supplied news magazines and arrangement made to pay for their coaching fees with a reputed IAS Coaching Institute in Pune. This is running well with the management support of Amol Gawali. The work on forming Trust is still pending.
