About Mahatma Gandhi Vidyamandir

Mahatma Gandhi Vidyamandir is one of the eminent educational institutions in Maharashtra. Late Karmavir Bhausaheb Hiray, a visionary educationalist started Adiwasi Seva Samiti and Mahatma Gandhi Vidyamandir in 1945 and 1952 respectively with the prime motto “Bahujan Hitay and Bahujan Sukhay”. He envisaged the problems of the underprivileged in educational sector and was pretty sure that these underprivileged would be brought into the process of development through education. He established many schools and colleges in the remote areas and lighted the lamp of education in the lives of the underprivileged tribal people by creating higher educational opportunities.

After Late Karmavir Bhausaheb Hiray’s demise, this noble work had been carried on by Late Shri Vyankatbhau Hiray. He added to the glory of the institution by taking initiative to provide opportunities to tribal students for higher education. Thereafter, Shrimati Pushpatai Hiray, Shri. Prashantdada Hiray, Shri. Dr. Apoorvabhau Hiray, and Shri. Advayaba Hiray have contributed a lot to make Mahatma Gandhi Vidyamandir a institute of excellence.
