Formal education through latest techniques along with traditional religious studies for needy children.

Kondajibaba Dere Trust, formed by the villagers to enable development in the educational domain, has played a remarkable role in providing the necessary educational facilities to the village children. Convenient arrangements, conducive to the progress and growth of the children, have come into existence in the village, through financial assistance provided by the Trust. Parnakuti is a residential school with food and healthcare facilities that has been built for the village children who wish to study. The Trust, with the help of contributions from the villagers, bears all the costs for the facilities therein. Lupin Foundation has helped by providing solar water heaters, cupboards and beds for the use of the students, thus upgrading the living conditions for the students. Children get formal education along with the religious studies. Traditional religious education system, BhagwatDharmicSanskaar  is used for studies regarding religion. The students also undergo training in what is popularly known as Kirtan.

It consists of recitation of mythological stories and songs from ancient Hindu culture that are performed in a peculiar manner.

An E-learning program has also been introduced in District Council (ZillaParishad) Primary School at Buchkewadi with the help of Lupin Foundation. Since the introduction of this facility, village children are getting a high quality educational experience with the help of audio-visual means.

This innovative step has broadened the horizons of the village children and has helped them to be at par with their urban counterparts. It has also earned a place in the list of ISO school villages in India.

Setting-up of the Educational Fund for Youth

An educational fund has been set up for needy youth, in order to promote higher studies in the village populace. Buchkewadi & Lupin Foundation Educational Committee has been formed to carry out functions like collecting donations, distributing scholarships and managing funds in a transparent manner. A substantial amount has been collected and deposited in a nationalized bank as a contribution from the village. The fund helps students from scheduled castes and landless families to continue with their education and not end up as a part of the unskilled labor force. Considering the need of computer literacy in today’s times, introductory computer courses are also being run with the help of this fund.
