Currently this residential school has total 63 students (boys and girls). The school building has 1 big classroom. The students stay separately in one large boys and one large girls room. Toilet and bathroom facilities are in the same building as the school adjacent to the classroom. Kitchen is a separate building. All buildings are ground floor only. The organization is in need of buildings for school and stay as the current facility is not equipped neither adequate for schooling as well as living. The trustee has donated a 2 acres land adjacent to the existing occupied land, so they have space to build. Architectural drawings, site plan and building constructions estimates are ready. ASHA will be providing funds to build 2 new separate buildings for boys and girls hostel. The plan also includes a new school building. From current ASHA funding, Phase I is achievable which is the foundation and ground floors of 2 hostel buildings. Astitva Pratishthan has another 100+ students on waiting list and hence the building plans are designed for future growth for up to 300 students total. As the first phase gets built they will be housing the current students as priority. ASHA's funds will be utilized for building construction. ASHA's steward is professionally trained Architect and understands building construction. Astitva Pratishthan is actively looking into other additional funding for building construction.

A group of youth active in their own villages in the areas of education and social awareness came together in 2003 and started this organization. They decided to dedicate their lives for rural development. The aim was to do some meaningful work and to create opportunities for the less fortunate ones in the society. They started the work under the banner of ASTITVA PRATISHTHAN(AP). Astitva means Existence. They decided to work in various domains like education, health, agriculture, watershed, self employment etc. The belief of the group is “Education is life and life is education." Mission is : Reaching out to the poor to end their deprivation and strive for social change. Main Area of work- Education, Agriculture and Watershed Development, Health, Self Help, Life skill Training/ Vocational Training.
