Sarvodaya Chhatra Niwas (Boys Hostel), Katalapur

सर्वोदय छात्र निवास, कातळापूर


Katalapur is one of the small and beautiful villages surrounded by scenic mountains of Sahyadri. ‘Sarvodaya Chhatra Niwas’ is an ideal Boys Hostels established in June 1950 by ‘Satyaniketan’. The Hostel was founded at Kotul but recently it is shifted to Katalapur. Gandhian followers Late R.V. Patankar, Late Bapusaheb Shende and Late Savitribai Madan had taken great efforts for the successful establishment of this Hostel.

Today, the Hostel is financed on Grant-in-aid basis by the Social Justice & Social Welfare Department of Maharashtra Government with the approved capacity of 72 students. The hostel is administered by the full-time Superintendent and the assistant staff. Each child in the Hostel is well looked after and individual needs are taken care of by Hostel administration. Free and nutritious meal is provided to the students. All facilities, as per government rules, are being provided to the students. Admissions are given with proper procedure and norms. Once the student is admitted in the hostel, he has to strictly follow the ‘Schedule Table’ as well as the rules and regulations. The hostel administration has a very better communication with the parents. ‘All-round development with discipline’ is the motto of the Hostel. Beside their academic improvement, the students are motivated to participate in different socio-cultural activities.

Satyaniketan’s ‘Sarvodaya Chhatra Niwas’ has emerged as a perfect Home for Rural & Tribal students where ‘tolerance, honesty and integrity’ is developed.

“The most important lesson that man can learn from life, is not that there is pain in this world, but that it is possible for him to transmute it into joy.”

It is said that “Great success requires greater sacrifice.” Really Satyaniketan’s ‘Sarvodaya Chhatra Niwas’ is the result of the great sacrificial work of R.V.Patankar, Bapusaheb Shende and Savitribai Madan. It is my great pleasure to inform you about this ideal Boys Hostel. Keeping in mind the educational development of Tribal community, this Boys Hostel was established. The Hostel is situated at a very picturesque location. Continuous efforts are made for the development of students by encouraging them to participate not only in academic but also co-curricular activities to improve their personality and to reveal the hidden potentials of the students. ‘Sarvodaya Chhatra Niwas’ is made available to the students with neat and clean accommodation, pure drinking water, hygienic toilet and bath facilities, warm and nutritious food facility. It is equipped with necessary basic facilities to make the staying comfortable. Television set is installed at the hostel for recreation among students. Frequent cultural programs are also arranged by the hostel administration. Students are encouraged to participate in Sports and Yoga. All the safety and security measures are taken into consideration and students are given free medical check-ups on regular basis. Let’s go ahead…!
