About us

BOSCO GRAMIN VIKAS KENDRA was started in the year 1988 at the parish of St. JOHN’S CHURCH BHINGAR. It is a Don Bosco Institution. Its first pilot project  of Watershed Development was at Dongargan in  Ahmednagar taluka which was a big success. Though BOSCO GRAMIN KENDRA was born in 1988, it was registered as a Charitable Trust with Society Reg. No. MH/ 2835/ Ahmednagar dt. 4 January 1994 and No.  F – 2657/ Ahmednagar dt. 13th March 1994. 

It has been working actively in tribal and rural areas of central Maharashtra region i.e. Ahmednagar, Aurangabad, Jalna, Parbhani, Beed and Satara.  We work with and for poorest of the poor, “the marginalized ” for whom agriculture is the main source of livelihood. For a variety of reasons, the agricultural output has been far from encouraging for the past few decades in this region.

The major factors being scarce and unseasonal rains, soil degradation due to erosion, unavailability of adequate irrigation water, incorrect cultivation practices and lack of land resource management skills of the people. To address this situation, BGVK has devised an integrated development plan and a set of favourable programmes for the villages.  

BGVK is a well – equipped Rural Training centre  and includes a farm spread across 18 acres. We engage in a host of activities and specialize in training for poultry, Goatery, Hydroponics, Bio composting, vermicomposting, etc. with live and experienced hand demos.
