Dream: To uplift the tribal village of Nand in South Gujarat with innovative faming and education
Mohan studied at Vidyapeeth and has been living in nand, a tribal village in south Gujarat and 25 km from kapran. This village is totally illiterate and most of the inhabitants work as migrant laborers. Work takes them traveling from place to place and their kids loiter on the streets near construction sites.
Mohan and his wife have decided to serve and live here for the next few years. He is a very hardworking, humble and compassionate person who wants to build a school with local materials with his own hands and teach some basics to the kids who receive no education at all. The villagers have given him some land with which he intends to start innovative farming himself and teach others.
Dreams is supporting both his projects.
The couple are serving them in many ways and have dedicated their lives for improving the lives of the tribal people in the village.
