Projects


With the ever evolving vision and encouraged by the support, co-operation of the philanthropists, and the initiative taken by the visionaries at the helm in order to make WKC a true abode of Konkani heritage, new and innovative projects are undertaken from time to time to widen the scope of activities.

Hostel Blocks

Two hostel blocks will come up at WKC with 16 rooms each to provide residential facilities to researchers, and these hostels can be called as guest houses as they will be provided with all essential modern facilities. One of the hostel blocks will have a cafeteria attached to it to cater to the boarding needs of hostel inmates.

Vishwa Konkani Darshan

Vishwa Konkani Darshan is an ambitious project of the foundation. It is a thematic permanent exhibition of the history of Konkani language and culture as envisaged by WKC. This exhibition is of a permanent nature and is made of durable materials to last for a minimum time frame. The visitors will get a brief insight into Konkani culture in the form of modules, audio visual presentations, commentary etc., to generate the interest of people in Konkani and enable Konkanis to trace their roots. This exhibition will also be a major tourist attraction once fully executed.

Heritage homes

The heritage home is another important project and will have a botanical garden comprising various plants and trees of medicinal values used in many Konkani households for centuries. It will also consist of a open air theatre to give vent to the talents of Konkani through various cultural activities.
