In the late seventies of the last century, Sangamner - a rural area was suffering from poverty, illiteracy, drought and unemployment. The basic cause of all these evils was rightly identified by Honorable Late Shri. Bhausaheb Santuji Thorat, a leader of cooperative movement, a great visionary and philanthropist. He converted his thoughts into reality by creating educational and training facilities. For this, he has founded the Amrutvahini Sheti and Shikshan Vikas Sanstha in 1978 to provide education to the poor farmer at his doorstep, which boosted the socioeconomic progress of the rural people.
