 About Mahatma Gandhi Vidyamandir

     Mahatma Gandhi Vidyamandir, Malegaon Camp owes its existence to the inspiration, pioneering work and farsightedness of its founder member, H'ble Late KarmaveerBhausaheb Hiray, a staunch freedom fighter, one of the pioneers of forming of Maharashtra state and co-operative movement in Nashik District, an educationist and Ex-Revenue minister of then Bombay province. He has founded the two well-known educational institutions in Nashik District, namely "AdivasiSevaSamiti" in 1945 and "Mahatma Gandhi Vidyamandir" in 1952. The major objective of these institutions was to provide the educational facilities to the masses from all the spheres, urban, rural and tribal. In 1959, he started a senior college at Malegaon. This gave a great boost to all the students in the North Maharashtra to achieve higher education goals.

     The devotional motto of the institution is "BahujanaHitayBahujanaSukhay". The institution has been registered under society's Registration Act-1860. (No.2766 of 1951-52 dated 21-02-1952) and Bombay Public Trust Act-1950 (NO F-27 dated 23-08-1954).

   After the sad demise of KarmaveerBhausaheb Hiray, on 6th November 1961, his elder son Lokenete Vyankatrao Hiray took over the responsibility of the institutions. Under his efforts and guidance. M. G. Vidyamandir started other colleges imparting higher education in the faculties of Arts, Science, Commerce, Law, Pharmacy and Education at Malegaon and later on at Manmad, Yeola, Nashik and Nampur.

Message from the General Secretary

The renowned psychologist Carl Jung said, “Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” We stand on the threshold of a new beginning, having covered a quarter of a century in the endeavour to create independent thinking, creative and sensitive individuals, who will serve as torch bearers to further ignite many more minds and create a world, painted with love, beauty and happiness.

Our strength lies in the four core values on which our school stands and each day, each year, we resurrect these values into the heart and mind of every student of LVH. In the coming years, we will continue to be ignited with the value of ‘Pride in one’s heritage’ and nurture our heritage with care, responsibility and a deep sense of dignity. Understanding the various facets of our country, and taking pride in its uniqueness, will continue to drive us.

Excellence is an attitude. We place high value on the ‘Pursuit of excellence’ and will continue to inculcate in our children the right outlook to not run after success but to chase excellence, in any and everything that they do. Sports, Art or Academics, the mantra that they need to follow is that they have to be better than what they were yesterday.

I foresee a world, through our school and its pupils, which values ‘Sensitivity’. Respecting differences and valuing every individual for what he or she is, is how we will create a community which is free from the shackles of ego and hatred. Compassion for others, for nature and how it serves us, and welcoming individual differences is, and will be, the mainstay of our school.
