Pravara Rural Education Society is bound to grow enormously under the dynamic leadership of Honourable Namdar Shri. Radhakrishna Eknathrao Vikhe Patil, whose entire life was dedicated to the service of the farmers and the rural community, He persevered to provide them educational facilities, employment, and ushered reforms in the rural agro-industries, water conservation and its distribution, agriculture, financial, and health sectors. Under his dynamic leadership the Pravara Rural Education Society is working earnestly to achieve the goals set by his father.
The need of hour is `Excellence in Education’ and in every field of operations. Starting an educational institution in such a remote place and making it run successfully was a task next to impossible. The challenge was taken by the visionary Padmashri Vikhe Patil and his associates. English medium public school and a separate school for girls were started in the early days. Further for Higher Education he started Arts, Science and Commerce College. It was the humble beginning to provide urban amenities to rural areas. Many centers of Primary, Secondary and Higher Education in and around, recognize Pravara as an Educational hub. In today’s competitive world, our aim is to equip the aspiring students with the knowledge that will help them to excel in life and contribute to the development of our economy. Most of the institutions have expanded vertically as well as horizontally and Pravara has become a role model of rural educational centers in the country under dynamic leadership.
