The All India Conference of Vanvasi Kalyan Ashram will be held at SHIRDI from 30th September 2018 to 2nd October 2018. This conference will be attended by about 3000 karyakartas from all over the country. This information was made known by Shri Atul Jog the All India Organising Secretary of the Vanvasi Kalyan Ashram by a Press release in Shirdi.
Vanvasi Kalyan Ashram is an All India Organisation engaged since 1952 for the welfare activities of Vanvasi /Janjati / Adivasi brethren and is running about 19,000 and more projects as part of the welfare measure. Along with karyakartas who actually work in the Vanvasi areas, there are thousands of karyakartas in urban areas who render their helping hand in fulfilling the objectives. At this juncture, Shri Jog informed that important Karyakartas numbering about 3000 from all over the country will gather at Shirdi as part of the Conference.
The Conference will be held at Shirdi’s Bhakta Niwas and the inauguration will take place at 10.00 am on Sunday the 30th September and the Conference will conclude on 2nd October. In the Conference, a Review of all activities of past year of Kalyan Ashram will be made and, after discussions, new directives will be issued on the challenges facing the Vanvasi Samaj. On this occasion certain Resolutions will be passed in the Conference, so said Shri Jog.
An important aspect of this Conference is that representation of various Janajatis will be depicted by their presence in their traditional attire; this will be a kaleidoscopic representation of Vanvasi Bharat on a larger scale to the people of Shirdi and surrounding. An exhibition of various rituals being performed by Vanvasi brethren will be organised at the Conference. This will give a message that all of us are part of the same traditions and culture. A digital picturization of all nationwide activities of Kalyan Ashram will also be a part of the Conference so he said.
On the occasion of Conference at Shirdi, the Karyakartas have commenced grand preparation with enthusiasm as informed by Dr.Prabodh Joshi a senior karyakarta of the Kalyan Ashram. The Office of the Conference was inaugurated in the presence of Shri Atul Jog.
