Subject: Photographs of Chikhli Computer Centre
This pictures are the opening ceremony at Chikhli
Computer Centre in February 2001. Prajaapati
Vishva Aashram Foundation (PVAF) donated
the first computer for this Centre.
Shree Dalpatbhai Channabhai Mistry of Toronto is seen
here inaugurating the computer as a representative of the donors from Toronto Shree
Prajaapati Mandal in Ontario, Canada.
During my speech to all members of Executives of chikhli
samaaj and families at large, I emphasized that this donations received
by PVAF are from all our prajaapatio families and our
samaajo from UK, Canada and USA. These donors have given from within their hearts
and without any hesitation. These donations are for this Gujaraat
Internet Connection Program. The donations are given to set up
computers in the samaaj on a priority of the need for financial
assistance of the samaaj families. The names of the donor samaajo
are displayed at this Centre on a plaque as seen in one of the photo. Similar
plaques are displayed at all other Computer Centers - navasaari,
bilimora, vaapi, baardoli, surat, killa-paardi in Gujarat which
received donations from PVAF.
Here is the opportunity to take the advantage of this wonderful gift not
only to connect to all prajaapatio in the world but also to teach computer use
and technology to our children.
Also we should do not forget the every day hardship and time commitment of the volunteers to run
this program and your local education programs in gujaraat, India. Without their support
and donations from outside and inside gujaraat these education programs would not have happened. So my
heartily appreciations goes to all volunteers in India who are devoting their time to give
education and also , organize and achieve this wonderful education program which
is the only thing that will take us out of poverty and into prosperity.
Also my sincere thanks goes to all our samaajo around the world for their dedication
in raising the funds when ever PVAF
volunteers approach for their assistance. Finally I would like to end this short message.
IF YOU GIVE A ROTLO TO A POOR MAN
THAT WOULD PROVIDE HIM FOOD FOR ONE DAY.
BUT IF WE TEACH HIM HOW TO FARM AND
GIVE HIM ALL RESOURCES TO FARM
THEN THAT WOULD GIVE HIM FOOD FOR REST OF
