Mumbai, 12 Sep 2012: Newly bought commercial space for the office use of VASAI KONKANI WELFARE ASSOCIATION (VKWA) was inaugurated on a Monti Fest Day evening (Sep 8) at 5.30pm by Mr. Albert W. D’Souza, chairman of Aldel education trust. The office is located at the heart of the city of VASAI, in SUYOG NAGAR, Opposite to the Bishops House of VASAI DIOCESE.


After inauguration Mr. Albert said that VKWA is the most vibrant association of today’s Konkani World. When any association buys its own office its activities gets centralised. This makes the association to sustain for a longer period. Because it gets a physical structure, it becomes an institution. I can see a like minded young leadership is coming together for a social cause here. It is a very young association. They could achieve to get their own office in only three years.  This association will move faster to the greater heights and remain as a pearl of Konkani society.



Fr. Nazareth Gabru, the Vicar General of Vasai Diocese blessed the office and said that VKWA is a great asset to the diocese. He appreciated the hard work of the members to buy an office. Fr. Ozy Gonsalves, Parish Priest of St. Ignatius Loyola church also congratulated the members for keeping the Konkani spirit high. Fr. Tony Jurschik, Fr. Joe Prabhu were also present.


Mr. Eric Ozario, the chief guest of the programme said that inaugurating an office for any Konkani organisation is a very rare occasion in Konkani. After visitin number of associations, I am very proud to announce that VKWA is one of the very active Konkani associations around the globe.  When a association gets an office of its own their activities get flourished faster.


The contributors of the association were honoured during this occasion. President Stephen Fernandes extended vote of thanks. Secretary Ancy D’Souza Paladka compered the programme.
