The world is coming closer with the help of the technology. However, the students from rural schools are not getting the advantage of the technology. It is well proven that the education provided through audio video medium is more effective. We aim to work with the education department, schools and teachers to provide them the digital material. It will add the new dimension in the daily education of the students.
Mobile Library is an innovative idea to intensify our activity in the spread of knowledge; we are proposing Mobile Library, which shall reach to different schools and various sections of society in time bound manner. The Jath tehsil has a Municipal Library and College/ Schools library. But it has limitations in catering need of readers.
Under this project, we surveyed 80 government schools and donated total 200 pairs of Indian slippers to 35 schools.
Every year Jath experiences 40+ degree temperature. It's unfortunate that still, some children have to walk barefoot to the school. To alleviate this problem, Youth for Jath conducted a project called 'Asmita.' The objective of this program is to identify vulnerable children from government schools and provide them Indian slippers. We hope these slippers will last for another year, and they will protect their feet from the scorching sun.
Youth for Jath donated 10 green big size classroom boards, 4 notice boards and 4 stands to SRVM High School & Jr College, Jath on the occasion of School union function arranged on 10 February 2018. This will directly benefit around 500-600 students. The boards were accepted by head teacher Shri. Shitole and deputy head teacher Shri. Borade. The total cost of these boards is Rs. 50,000.
On 25 Dec 2017, Youth for Jath organised a workshop on the subject “UPSC & MPSC exams Preparation” The key speakers of the workshop were Mr Abhijit Raut, CEO ZP Sangli and Mr Pandurang Pole, CEO Slum Rehabilitation Pune. It was the first of its kinds of the program where students got an opportunity to listen two IAS officers on the same occasion. The program was well received by the students and attended by more than 400 participants. The guest speakers in their speech explained what is expected of the students who want to prepare for these competitive exams. They emphasised on the qualities like commitment, determination, problem-solving and being creative. They also told the list of key books which students must study in details. We are confident that the life story of these officers will be an inspiring story for all the students.
Amol Bamane, a young boy, faced many difficulties in his education. However, he surpassed all odds and due to his zeal and perseverance fetched good marks in year 12 board exams.

It is unfortunate that due to poverty even basic needs of the school cannot be met by many parents. The members of Youth for Jath (Y4J) organisation realised this gap. They worked with local schools to understand the need and prepared the list of potential students.Dr Sunil Joshi (PhD in Ayurvedic medicine), the member and coordinator of Y4J took the lead for distributing notebooks.

The school was in need of this equipment for a long time. This additional tool will help the school in imparting better education to its students. Youth for Jath is proud of their members who are setting up right examples in front of the society.
As we know, today's generation is addictive to social media. Though the benefits of social media are tremendous, it comes with several risks. We read about such bad incidents every day. Youth for Jath arranged an interactive lecture for the college students of RR college, Jath. The chief guest Mr Somanath Kadam in his speech told to take many precautions while posting anything on the social media.
On this occasion, the organisation helped 13 needy students of the college by giving them cash gifts to help with their educational needs.
Mr Somanath Kadam, the author, donated copies of books written on “Cyber Crime.”
The school plays the pivotal role in everyone's life. Similarly, our school has laid a strong foundation for our future. Therefore the founding members of Youth for Jath (y4j) thought that there couldn't be much more better place than own school to commence the journey of the social work.
Y4J members celebrated Independence day with SRVM Highschool students. On this occasion, the organisation donated ₹ 20000 among 20 needy and bright students of the school.
