I am a gandhian scholor and have deep knoledge in Gandhian philosphy. Now I am working in Gandhi Research Foundation, Jalgaon. I am editor of khoj gandhiji ki, I am script writer, book writer, translator etc.
I went through the site and have seen you plan to start with 50... so you need much less than 500 rooms to begin... was it a 0 too much or the whole plan is to expand up to 500 rooms? To raise the funds you need to have a plan with gradual stages to completition, and related budgets...
sorry I've been away for a while... 500 rooms? how many people have you in mind to train at the same time? I mean... a campus for how many students? Do you have a plan and a budget already ready or you are working on it? give me more details...may be i should go on your website and there are the infos...
Anyway, as you ask for my assistance or cooperation, keep me updated about the state of the works in progress.

CSV has many other appropriate tecnologies that could be implemented in your campus.. If you do not have the contact with CSV, I can send it to you
