Shree Akkalkot Swami Seva Mandal has been actively working in the social, religious and spiritual fields in Ambernath since last 30 years. The Mandal motivated by the inspiration from Shree Swami Samarth Maharaj and belsing of reverend late Shree Udas Maharaj, has acquired 13 acres of land at Anandwadi, near Karjat-Kashele. Going to take shape on the very land is the grand ‘Swamidham’ which will house 1) A free medical check-up/aid centre 2) Charity meals for Adivasi children 3) Home for Sr. citizens (Vriddhashram)
4) Orphanage 5) Vanvasi (Tribal) Welfare Asharam and school
6) Mobile clinic for 17 to 18 Adivasi villages around in the vicinity 7) Goshala (Cow Care centre) 8) Shree Akkalkot Swami Temple. The first two projects out of these are already operational.
The doctors during the course of free medical check-up observed that many Adivasi children are malnourished. On subsequent inquiry it was revealed that they get their only meal of a day in the form of Khichadi (hotch-potch) of Upama in their schools and they have to go empty stomach for the rest of the day. They don’t get even this much food on School Holidays. Taking this into consideration our Mandal has started organising ‘Charity Meals’ daily between 5.00 pm and 7.00 pm at ‘Swamidham’. There are 17 to 18 villages around the vicinity, but for the present we are providing FREE MEAL to the children below 12 years of age of only 5 villages namely Anandwadi, Pimpalwadi, Thombrewadi, Katkarwadi & Mograj. The total number of children benefited are 192. All the generous devotees who wish to donate for this cause of ‘Charity Meal’ are requested to contact us. Donations in the form of Grains will also be accepted. Donations in the form of Money can be accepted lump sum or in the form of monthly donations. Our experience ssays that one square nutrition meal of a child costs Rs. 300/- per month. Donations can be given in cash, cheques or money transfers drawn in favour of ‘Shri Akkalkotswami Seva Mandal’ on our SB A/c No. 0201101345264, Canara Bank, Ambernath Branch. Donations made to ‘Swamidham’ are elligible for income tax exemption Under Section 80G.
