The blossoming of Goa in the sphere of education, art and culture, business and sports would be incomplete without the inputs made by the house of 'Dempo'. The altruistic spirit of this family has echoed within the walls of the State and has also sky rocketed Goa and Goans into national and international arenas.

This philanthropic attitude saw the foundation of Dempo Charities Trust. The Trust manages four educational institutions in Goa.

These are:

  1. Dhempe College of Arts & Science established in 1962 and located at Miramar. (NAAC accredited 'A').
  2. Srinivasa Sinai Dempo College of Commerce & Economics established in 1966 and located at Altinho. ( NAAC accredited 'B').
  3. Vasantrao Dempo Higher Secondary School of Arts & Science established in 1975 and located at Miramar.
  4. Voicuntrao Sinai Dempo Higher Secondary School of Commerce established in 1975 and located at Miramar.

The total enrollment in these institutions is around 3,500. The Trust strives to provide state of art infrastructure in all these institutions. As a result, the students in these institutions have performed very well in public examinations and have frequently appeared in the merit lists of educational Boards and Universities.

These students have also excelled in extra curricular activities, in sports and athletics. Many have performed well, not only in inter- collegiate events but even in inter-university and national level competitions. The N.S.S. units have rendered commendable services to the community. The N.C.C wing does the institutions proud with cadets representing the college at state and national levels.

The institutions of Dempo Charities Trust are affiliated to Goa Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Examinations and Goa University. But besides this they are also associated with other educational and professional bodies.

Apart from managing these educational institutions, the Trust also provides annual scholarships and financial assistance amounting to Rupees Five lakhs, to hundreds of needy and deserving students from the institutions under its management but also to students from different parts of Goa as well as outside Goa.

The Trust has also been extending financial assistance to various educational, socio-cultural and religious institutions.

With a view to filling the gap that exists in the field of research in Goa in subject related to Goa's culture, arts, society, biodiversity etc. the Dempo Charities Trust has established a fellowship. The financial grant of rupees 1 lakh is granted on the basis of merit for the completion of research in a scientific manner. This fellowship also aims at strengthening and consolidating the intellectual foundations of Goa. Dr. Phal Desai of Canacona was the first recipient of this financial grant.

To commemorate the work of late Shri Vasudeva V. Sinai Dempo and to give filling to intellectual development of Goa, the Trust has started an Annual Memorial lecture series after the illustrious "Son of Goa - Vasudeva V. Sinai Dempo". Vasudeva Dempo's contribution to education and research in Goa is tremendous. Indeed, he gave as much importance to social, educational and cultural activities as he gave to his own business. Truly, his dedication and sincerity in undertaking various efforts to contribute to the cultural, social, and educational advancement was beyond compare.
