Vivek’s daughter, Jaai who is a bioinformatics graduate, got married to fighter pilot Tejas on December 24, 2015. Her parents cut down on unnecessary wedding expenses like décor and other things. The amount saved then went to these two villages.

Speaking about it Vadke said:

"We were quite aware of the situation in the state and did not want to spend money on things that are not too important like decorations. After visiting the villages, we realized that the best way to use the money would be to help deepen and widen the water resources in these villages to increase their capacity for the monsoon."
