The Krishnamurti Foundation India (www.kfionline.org) is a
charitable organisation concerned with education, social reforms,
rural health and other programmes for uplift of the rural
masses. The Foundation has set up five educational centres
in India. Rajghat Educational Centre (REC www.j-krishnamurti.org)
at Varanasi is one of the five educational centres. REC has
five functional areas. One of them is The Rural Centre.
The Rural Centre was founded by Shri Achyut Patwardhan
in 1953 and has developed over the years on this sacred
soil at the confluence of the rivers Ganga (Ganges) and
Varuna. It is located on the eastern bank of the Varuna
and the northern bank of Ganga. It is said that through
these lands the Buddha had walked to Saranath about two
thousand five hundred years ago.
The main objective of establishing this Centre is to serve
the rural communities who live in twenty villages situated
close to the Centre. The Centre has been offering services
in the fields of education, health care, agriculture, livestock
and development work. The Centre desires to intensify its
activities to serve the disadvantaged communities.
