This center is the result of a dream dreamt by a common man to take India towards the realm of progress and development. Shri Chandrakant Babaji Naik, dared to dream such a dream, with the conviction that India will development on holistic basis when the rural thought process undergoes a change towards scientific thinking from the superstitious thinking.

CB Naik strongly believed that to ensure the future of India looks towards scientific progression the mindset of the young rural students will have to be transformed first. And bringing that dream to Sindhudhurg he started on this path towards transformation of the young minds in 1995.

Shri CB Naik, walked with Baba Amte across the length and breadth of India during the Bharat Jodo Andholan, reaching out to the remote corners of the country. This and the 25 years with Baba Amte culminated in C.B Naik leaving a lucrative job in Bank of India in 1994 and moving to Sindhudhurg to follow his dream of working with the students of rural villages, to transform the perspective of students to Scientific thinking. To realize this dream CB Naik founded the Vasundhara Public Charitable Trust in 1995 in Kudal.

About Vasundara

The Vasundhara Public Charitable Trust was founded by Let. Mr. C.B. Naik at Nerurpar in Kudal Taluka in 1995. It was his zeal and passion for the students of rural area to educate them, to channelize their thought process into logical thinking through rigorous training in science and math in creating great scientific minds. Today, Vasundhara Trust’s mission is to inculcate passion for Science and Mathematics education that come to learn in this center. The target students are children living in remote and hilly areas of Sindhudurg District.

Vasundhara Trust initiated its work by introducing “Science on Wheels” a mobile laboratory. This unique project has made Vasundhara to reach hundreds of schools from remote areas and also has given name and fame in Sindhudurg district. Expansion on 4.5 acres of land at Nerurpar, Kudal Vasundhara setup unique Science centre with total constructed area of 22,000 sq ft. It comprises of two Eureka Halls to perform experiments for students of various age groups, the Dynamic Laboratory to demonstrate experiments, E-Learning Hall for self-learning, Auditorium for guest lectures and various science workshops, Student Hostel to accommodate 100 students, Cafeteria and Common utility center & administration office.

‘Science on Wheel’ our Flagship program runs with a van equipped with science apparatus along with a Science Facilitators. This van visit schools from remote villages and demonstrate science experiments to make certain science concepts clear to these students. Experiments demonstrated have the elements of novelty and affordable excellence. So far more than four lac students were benefited from this Mobile Science Lab. More than two lac students and general public have been benefited from our Eureka hall activities, Sky gazing, Science workshops and Science Show initiatives.

All these 26 years endless efforts of Mr. C.B Naik and Vasundhara Team to propagate science among rural students have been acknowledge with National Award by Dept. of Science & Technology Govt. of India, New Delhi. With the National Award our responsibilities are increased in many folds. Number of schools, students, Scientists and general public visiting Science Center are increasing day by day. The development of our laboratories are in progress.

We are trying our Best to reach the rural students with modern technology of learning. For this we have undertaken the projects like Mobile Digital School, E- Dnyan, 3D Science Fiction Movie, Science Park & Talk with Scientists.

In the year 2020, due to the global epidemic of Corona, the whole world had to face a great crisis and today all of them are facing this crisis with great courage. The Vasundhara science center had also made the space of the institute available for segregation room as a first step keeping in view the social awareness. The Corona (Covid 19) epidemic has disrupted normal life throughout the world. Naturally, like all other sectors, it has affected the education system. That time, schools started online classes. But at that time, it was found that many students living in Sindhudurg and similar hilly areas are deprived of this facility due to lack of internet and Android phones. After discussing this issue, Vasundhara's team started distributing worksheets to 10th standard Marathi medium students on an experimental basis based on the school curriculum from September. So that the students of class 10th can study under the guidance of their school subject teachers. This initiative started on an experimental basis became a remarkable achievement in the field of education in Sindhudurg district.

The year 2021 will also be the year of Corona (Covid 19) to fight the global epidemic and take care of the health of others. Today, Corona (Covid 19) has made everyone aware of health issues, but some have doubts about their health and some have fears about their illnesses. With all this in mind, it is imperative to create health awareness in the society. So Vasundhara Science Center is coming up with a new health project called Ten Minutes For Health.
