Wardha is the land of prominent personalities- Gandhi, Vinova and Jamnalalji Bajaj. Once, Gandhiji has said about Jamnalalji- “Jamnalalji is the man
of the people– a fisher of men who had the knack of gathering people around him and inspiring them with his idealism.” Very active during India’s
freedom struggle, Jamnalalji was a philanthropist who delighted in donating most of his wealth for worthy causes. From the beginning, Jamnalalji was
always more involved in social and philanthropic activities rather than business. Jamnalalji made Wardha the centre for Gandhiji’s economic and
social development programmes. He established the Satyagraha Ashram in Wardha in 1921. He brought Vinoba Bhave to the Wardha Ashram to
nurture it into the national institution.
With a view to commemorate the memory of Shri Kamalnayan and Shri Jamnalal Bajaj, the Bajaj family has constituted Kamalnayan Jamnalal Bajaj
Foundation, (KJBF) towards fulfilling social responsibility and gratitude through continuous efforts for the cause of Socio Economic development of the
Society.” The vision of KJBF is, “Integrated development of the society through participatory approaches that sets benchmarks and standards for
others to emulate for sustainable development” To fulfil the vision, KJBF has initiated number of development interventions in 200 villages of Wardha
district from July 2009. The major emphasis is on integrated Water Resource Development and management, Agriculture development, Livestock
development, women empowerment and training and capacity building through participatory approaches.
Kamalnayan Jamnalal Bajaja (KJBF) also aims to establish a Training and Livelihood Resource Centre thereby to contribute for integrated and
sustainable development of the rural community of Wardha district through participatory approaches.
