Devka, situated in Rajula district, was devastated by an earthquake destroying all school buildings left and thus children were being taught under trees until a grant was provided by the Government and a school building was erected under Pujya Bhaishri’s inspiration.

In addition, prior to this, no girls were given education in Devka and the surrounding small villages. Pujya Bhaishri fully supports the education of girls and stresses great importance on this. With the enthusiastic teachers, every household was visited to persuade people to understand the importance of educating girls. This successfully resulted in girls attending school.

Thereafter, one of the major obstacles was the lack of local schools beyond standard seven within Devka. Families were less likely to send girls to other villages for upper grades. This led to the development of Devka Vidyapeeth (DVP), which included a high school on a donated 25-acre plot of land.

The development of DVP was led by Vraj Bhagirathi Charitable Trust with the involvement and interest of people from overseas through New Jersey Vidya Charitable Trust. DVP was inaugurated on 16 May 2012 with a Shrimad Bhagavat Katha by Pujya Bhaishri in the presence of the then Chief Minister of Gujarat, Shri Narendra Modiji.

The principal aim of Devka Vidyapeeth is to educate each and every girl and boy in the rural area, facilitate their growth, and provide them with higher education. In doing so, enrich their lives and achieve the advancement of society.

To promote education to girls, 25% discount in fees is offered to all girls. In addition, Shri Vraj Bhagirathi Charitable Trust sponsors education for those bright students who may be unable to afford education but is keen to study.
