It says in all Ved shastras that GNAN-DAN (donations to education leading to knowledge) is the best gift (dana) one can give to his fellow human being.

Prajapati Vishva Ashram has created this opportunity to earn punya (merit) for your karma by its FUNDING EDUCATION FOR EMPLOYMENT SKILLS PROGRAM (GNAN-DAN YOJNA). For more details see the Prajapati Vishva Ashram information on this site

Education is the only way each of us will prosper on whatever life path each of us may choose. However, in the present world many of our children who want to educate themselves cannot do so because of their family’s and/or own financial inability and the inability of the society they live in. Most of the time financial inability exists because the parents in the family did not have education.

It is every Prajapati’s dharma to help such children to get education. One educated child in a family has proven to change the family completely on the road to normal prosperity for the entire family. Also by education we follow the age old wise saying from Confucius that “DO NOT GIVE FISH TO A HUNGRY PERSON. INSTEAD TEACH HIM TO FISH.”

In November 1999, Prajapati Vishva Ashram has awarded its first one 4-year scholarship to Divyeshkumar Natwarlal Lad of Soldhara in Chikhli District, Gujarat for him to get his Information Technology Degree.

There are many more Prajapati youths in Gujarat at the present moment who wishes and have the ability to get higher education of employable skills in field of their choice. But family financial circumstances of these youngsters will not enable them to do so. But YOUR DONATION to this cause will make their dreams come true and change their lives and the lives of their family forever. In return, Prajapati Vishva Ashram is asking from these youths that they in turn educate at least one person in their life time, the same way as they were helped.
