About Sanjay Ghodawat Foundation
Committed to Society
Believing firmly in giving back to the society what is earned from it, the philanthropist Mr. Sanjay Ghodawat has been donating generously for diverse social causes both personally and through charitable trusts. “Sou. Sushila Danchand Ghodawat Charitable Trust” provides social, medical and educational help to those who most need it. The ‘no profit, no loss’ “Acharya Shree Tulsi Blood Bank” has been rated among the top three blood banks in India due to its sheer quality of equipment, infrastructure, and care.
The “Khivraj Ghodawat Charitable Trust” runs a self-funded ‘Shreemati Gangabai Khivraj Ghodawat Kanya Mahavidyalaya’ in Shirol near Kolhapur. The school has educated more than 5000 girls from 52 villages since 1995. It is also setting up an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Jaysingpur district hospital by donating medical supplies.
Chairman Mr. Sanjay Ghodawat’s philanthropic leanings have rubbed off on the entire organization. With an unwavering commitment to the society, the Group has to its credit some ground-breaking initiatives including the donation of operation theatres, community halls, school buildings for the blind, etc. The Group’s afforestation drive resulted in the planting of 30,000 trees in a single year in 2010 and this number continues to grow every year. Major contribution or modest, the Group has always lived up to its social responsibility obligations. So far, the group has planted over 250,000 trees across areas in Maharashtra and Karnataka.
The foundation also runs the daily management of the “Lions Clubs Visually Disabled School” in Miraj and has also donated its building. It helps in educating and development of specially-abled children and ensures all round development of every child’s physical, mental and emotional wellness. The Sanjay Ghodawat Foundation also had set-up numerous bio-toilets in the rural villages surrounding Kolhapur district.
