It is a common fact today that India has one of the youngest populations in the world where approximately 33 crore people are between 15-29 years old. This staggering statistic signifies a huge opportunity and challenge simultaneously. If our country is to prosper, our first objectiveshould be gradually working towards the eradication of poverty. In order for this to be a reality we need to begin at the threshold and initiate at the grassroot level by educating the children of our nation, which will equip them with skills for independency. Our nation will only be able to prosper once the youth is fully educated.

In India, Agriculture is the largest provider of livelihood for 50% of the population, especially in rural areas.There are countless rural kids who have no access to education due to their social standing and/or financial hardship. An institution that addresses these two issues is KKTN, a polytechnic educational institution under UKSS, affiliated to Dapoli University where students are enrolled into a 3-year Diploma in agricultural science. Students are educated on sustainable agriculture, rural employment, and environmentally sustainable technologies such as soil management, irrigation management, water management, which are all essential for holistic rural development.

Upon completion students will have the knowledge to be able to grow atleast 36 types of fruit crop, 6 leafy vegetables, 16 pulses, 7 cereal crops, 6 oil seeds, 4 fiber crops, 2 cash crops, 20 grasses/pasture/fodder crops, 23 spices & condiments, 26 vegetables, 5 exotic vegetables. In addition, students will also engage in subjects of nursery plantation, dairy development, ornamental fishery, poultry, apiculture, sericulture, manure/compost making, and post harvesting techniques.

KKTN is located in Keshavsrushti spread over a staggering 206 acres of land and is equipped with the normal expected facilities of an educational institution, which include separate hostels for boys and girls. KKNN mostly comprises of students from extremely poor backgrounds. Since 2005, students have come from 127 villages in Thane, Nandurbar and Dhule District of Maharashtra where 70% of our students have successfully completed the course.

KKTN works closely with NGO’s and the youth by motivating them to improve their living conditions, ensure their independency, and ultimately to secure the right to education by joining the program. One of the major problems we have is funding. KKTN is grateful for the limited support from the government in terms of fees. However, this amount is insufficient as students only from NT/ST/SC/ OBC backgrounds are covered. There are many other capable students who do not fall into this category and henceforth miss out on the right to education. If UKSS were not an educational trust, we would use the existing lands for commercial cultivation and use the proceeds for our independency.

We, at UKSS, believe the power of independence and financial freedom lies solely in harness with a young and vibrant educational environment. Until now, we have just about managed to reach our goals, thanks to the consistent and generous donations from a few members of society. We wholeheartedly thank them for continuously supporting our cause. However, there are still many unfortunate students who miss out on this opportunity due to lack of monetary funds. Therefore, we sincerely ask those who are willing and able, to donate to this initiative where the dream of every youth can be fulfilled through education. The current situation is very challenging and we would be extremely grateful for participation from all sections of society ranging from individuals to institutions that will help us spread awareness with regards to our cause.

You can sponsor a child’s full education with a donation of Rs25,000 a year. We assure you that your contribution will ensure quality education for those who desperately need it. KKTN will enable your interaction with the student once a quarter to monitor his/her progress and education.

Last but not least, we kindly request you to spread the message to your friends, family, and relatives to maximize awareness and help us in the process of Nation Building by promoting Agriculture and Agro based employment in the next generation Indian.
