Our Story

Yajurvendra Mahajan was born in Erandol, a small town in the Jalgaon district of Maharastra. His grandfather was a headmaster at the local school, and his father was a rural doctor. Since working for people’s welfare was part of his family values, working for the well-being of society came naturally to Yajurvendra. While pursuing his higher studies in Pune, the harsh truth of the discrepancy in the standard of education available to the elite and the poor or the urban and the rural made him restless. He honestly believed that everyone deserved a fair chance at education. He felt the need to bridge this gap between the available opportunities and the bright underprivileged students. Leaving his lucrative career in education at Pune, he returned to his hometown, at Jalgaon.

Yajurvendra, along with a few like-minded people, set in motion a revolution for rural and tribal education . He sold his ancestral property, which was his home, and also choose to go for a registered court marriage instead of a pompous wedding and used the money to further his cause. His selfless actions inspired many other individuals to participate in this movement.

The team consulted experts, researched and learnt from others veterans working in this field. They figured ways to use their voices to raise the need for holistic education to everyone and use their resources to start transforming lives. As their commitment to this work grew, under the leadership of Yajurvendra Mahajan.

Deepstambh Foundation started working for the comprehensive development of rural, tribal, deprived and economically backward students. It supported them with training for competitive examination and guidance in personality and career development. By promoting a reading culture and conducting student-parent- teachers counselling and training programs, Deepstambh Foundation equipped the students with the necessary facilities, atmosphere and guidance for holistic education and development.

It was during the Deepstambh journey that once a differently-abled girl stirred Yajurvendra’s thoughts more deeply. When she said that she felt like a liability to her financially backward family and expressed her desire to be self-sufficient, Yajurvendra felt compelled to think for the benefit of all such students. At this point, the foundation decided to extend it’s wings and hence Manobal was set up. Through Manobal, Deepstambh Foundation started working with different types of persons with disabilities and orphans to inculcate a sense of self-confidence, self-esteem and self-reliance in them. Manobal now enables these students to dream big and work hard to achieve those dreams.

At Deepstambh Foundation, the valuable contribution of a group of dedicated, courageous and hard-working people is helping it share its progressive work to every nook and corner of India. The team strongly believes goodness is contagious, and the journey will keep continuing with strength and conviction.
