Thakkar Bapa Vidyalaya
Thakkar Bapa Vidyalaya whose foundation was laid by Mahatma Ganhiji in 1946 ,is an industrial training centre training students from the economically backward section of the society .Courses, which will enable students to acquire skill in some useful trade and also provide job opportunities, are being offered in the Vidyalaya .While preference is given to Harijan students ,the Vidyalaya is open for admission to all communities with the goal of uniting all sections of the people as desired by Gandhiji. Along with the knowledge in the trade, Gandhian work culture is also imparted to the students thereby creating a wholesome individual and a responsible citizen which attract reputable companies to select all our students.Floods caused irreparable damage to the classrooms and the workshop. Most of the machinery and equipment used for training were destroyed in 8 feet of water. The classrooms and the workshop buildings [ 70 years old] became very weak and started falling to pieces . The training programme is of immense importance because it helps train a poor student ,gets him a job in a relevant and makes him financially independent . We are in need of funds to renovate the collapsed buildings and refurbish the machinery and equipment.
