The trust in turn opens a ‘Savings account’ of the person depositing the book. The paper from the used notebooks is then used for making environment friendly Ganesha idols. Based on the number of completed books returned back, the account of the account holder is credited and certain spiritual privileges are granted upon reaching specified milestones.

This is a knowledge bank that stores knowledge in the form of Audio cassettes and CDs for the benefit for the visually challenged. These audio cassettes and CDs are based on the academic curriculum and are recorded by the volunteers as a part of their devotional service. They are then distributed to the visually challenged students of various blind schools and colleges free of cost.
Kolhapur Medical Camp
A mega medical camp reaching out to more than 85 villages in the district of Kolhapur has been offering consistent services for the past twelve years. The camp has been started after an intensive and exhaustive research and study on the health profile of the local populace. Their social norms, culture and customs were also studied. The camp which is held every year has not only transformed the health profile of local inhabitants but also put an end to their long standing social ills nurtured by superstition and blind faith.
A turnout of at least 70000 villagers is a positive feature of the camp. The camp ends with a ‘belly full’ (wholesome meal) given to the villagers by the volunteers of the Sanstha who have also cooked the meal with love and affection
