The biggest challenge, which an organization like us could face, is of financial resources and utilization. All the educational institutes established by Kelavani Mandal have been on unaided basis i.e. without any grant or support from Government or any funding agencies. The fees of these institutes are also dictated by Government. The intake of any of these institutes is also determined by Government. Salaries, which comprise major cost component, are also stipulated by Government. These constraints make difficult the financial resource planning of any non-profit organization like us.
Moreover, Kelavani Mandal has taken several social initiatives like Education Outreach Programs, Establishment of Career Development Centres in distant villages, and financial aid to needy students etc. These initiatives are essentially non-economic in nature generating none or negligible economic revenue. But, as a social responsibility, these are undertaken by Mandal.
We had been able to face challenges of increased competition; we had been able to manage our finances in spite of the constraints laid down by Government and We had been able to take socially beneficial initiatives only because of unflinching wholehearted support of our venerate donors. Without these donors, the stupendous growth that we have achieved would have been a distant dream.
Uptill now, approximately Rs.22 Crores (US $ 5.5 million @ Rs. 40/- per dollar) have been received in the form of donation. About 800 families have been behind this munificence. Out of these eight hundred, more than 55 % have been NRIs. Their wholehearted response and support is evident of their love for their country and affection for their fellow brethren in India.
We salute their patriotism.
