Marathi Shala is a joint venture between BMM and Bharatiya Vidhyapeeth, Pune. MSBC started Kilbil Marathi Shala project in 2010 and the school is held every Friday during regular school year from late September to mid June.
Sakhi Sahavas is an informal group of women started in December, 2009. It promotes womens' networking as persons. Its meetings are held at its members' convenience, usually in alternate months, or six times a year, either at home, or at a convenient location. Women get together to connect and exchange stories / experiences / opinions on a given topic, and also enjoy good food in each-other's company. The 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. format suits these gatherings as they are always conducted in a relaxed manner, so that women get to know and encourage each-other in whatever enterprize is undertaken. There is no fee to the events and new friends are welcome to join anytime.
We have had a wonderful response from women of all ages, and hope to have continuous support of women for this minds-meet. If you want to join the group, please get in touch with Vidyut Aklujkar at firstname.lastname@example.org
