Asha Austin is supporting the development of better laboratory facilities at the school.
From the project proposal: Ours is a small village situated far interior from the main stream of urban population with a view to provide basic education & other facilities to this backward village named “Vilawade”, Tal-Sawantawadi ,Dist-Sindhudurg .45 years ago, a modest beginning was made by organizing ourselves in the above named small institution. During the course of last 45 years ago, we have built up one modern school building(clay walls) that is catering the need of this backward population. With the passage of time, hot awakening has taken place & the strength of the students swelled like anything. Our only one building premises became inadequate to accommodate the increasing student population. Besides imparting education we encourage bright students by awarding merits awards for securing 1st, 2nd, 3rd ranks in their respective classes. Every year we are also finding a donor for providing textbooks, school-uniforms, notebooks for the poor backward students. Our institution belongs enough land more than 04 acres (04 acres & 31 guntha) surrounding by natural beauty.

Higher education facilities being merge around, we have decided to extend facilities further by providing additional school building Laboratory, Library, Sports-room, Office-room, Staff-room & big playground on Taluka level etc.

From 1980-81 academic year we have started secondary school by name “Raja Shivaji Vidhyalaya” Vilawade. At present Government of Maharashtra issued a grant to our school teaching staff & non-teaching staff, now our goal is to develop our school into junior college, but for this purpose, our institution is facing financial problem. The above fact is to help to restrict the urban students from migrating to cities thus preventing them from taking hard strained.
