In order to realize this vision in one community, 20 acres of land were
provided by Shri Arjun Singh Samdarshi in Govindpur, Bijnor (UP). Shri
Arjun Singh's elder brother Late Shri Sachidanand had started a school
in Govindpur in 1975 which is now known as the "Sachidanand
Smarak Vidyalaya" and is being run by Jivan Vidya Pratishthan (Bijnor)
which is a part of Jivan Vidya Nyas (Delhi).
Several persons have committed themselves to the activities of the
Pratishthan during the last three years. The pratishthan presently
has the following areas of work:
1 . Primary
and Secondary Education: The education system of the Sachidanand
Smarak Vidyalaya has been redesigned on the basis of the Saha-Astitwa
Vision. The school employs teachers who belong to the neighbouring villages.
The students ot the school also come from the neighbouring villages. At
present the school has classes up to the 10th.
Education and Community Development: This work is carried out by
involving the local community in the programmes of the pratishthan and
by organizing workshops in the villages neighbouring Govindpur.
3 . Jeevan
Vidya Camps: These camps are conducted regularly in Govindpur and
also at other places all over the country to explain the Saha-Astitwa
Vision and to formulate programmes in togetherness.
Manav Patrika: This is a journal published by the Pratishthan and
includes articles inspired by the Saha-Astitwa Vision.
The Pratishthan also cultivates land attached to the vidyalaya in the Govindpur
The goal of the Jivan Vidya Pratishthan
is to run its activities self-sufficiently and develop all the systems
mentioned above in the Govindpur Area. Currently, funding for activities
is provided partly by the agricultural produce from Govindpur and
partly by savings of the Pratishthan members and their close friends.
