Appeal for fight against covid-19
CONTRIBUTE TO OUR EFFORTS TO CONTAIN THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS
Apart from education and health services, Gandhi Vidya Mandir (GVM) has been involved in humanitarian services since its inception in 1950 .Under its umbrella GVM runs IASE deemed university, Krishi Vijan Kendra, 5 schools, a gaushala and an Ayurved College. The volunteers of the Institute have given outstanding service at the times of natural calamities like Uttarakhand floods, Tsunami, floods of Kashmir and floods of Barmer. Now with limited resources our team of 150 volunteers are fighting against spread of pandemic disease Novel Covid-19 at various levels.
Gandhi Vidya Mandir (GVM) signifies an educational establishment that sows the seed of humanism into each human being. If I were to elaborate, 'Gandhi Vidya' would augment a life-style that is useful to all and benign to all; which could keep the human society held together despite diversity of views, environments and aptitudes, by an abiding bond of love; and that should, as well, be able to prevent degeneration of human society by providing equitable education of the highest order in different streams of knowledge. That would also foster rural upliftment, character building, creation of addiction-free society, self-purification, awareness for health and hygiene, “think no ill – do no ill” to anyone, and an urge to extend a helping hand in fulfilling the basic needs (of the society). I would call it GANDHI VIDYA, and its veritable sanctum would be MANDIR.

INTRODUCTION TO GVM
GVM was founded in 1950, on a 1200- acre piece of land, on one of the harshest and most backward terrains. Acutely prone to droughts, heat and cold waves, epidemics and other travesties of nature, GVM has striven to alleviate the acute backwardness through various permanent and adhoc programmes of education, culture, livelihood, health and hygiene, vocations etc.
The importance of ethics and values too cannot be disregarded; otherwise a student would become a rudderless ship. In order to meet the manifold changes and challenges in the emotional maladies confronting the society at large, the institutions of higher education must set a mind-frame to consciously ingrain the humanistic values into the students at every step. IASE University, in its own humble way, would like to make itself a paradigm of sorts.
ESSENCE OF GVM
GVM has had a glorious past.It has grown from strength-to-strength and its 50 years history is a saga of strides, struggles and successes. "Service with Sincerity" is our watchword and the motto is : "Gyan-bhanur-bhasatam" - "May the Sun of Knowledge Shine".
Gandhi Vidya Mandir (GVM), founded in 1950 as a sequel to its founder's dedication to the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi whose assassination spurred a revolution in his heart and soul. His name was Shri Kanhaiyalal Dugar. Born and brought up in Sardarshahr in the erstwhile princely State of Bikaner in a very distinguished and wealthy family, yet, Shri Kanhaiyalal Dugar was spiritually inclined since his childhood.
Gandhi Vidya Mandir takes up various activities regularly for the betterment of the society and harmony through togetherness to promote our vision of a human society held together despite diversity of views.
