From The Chairman’s Desk


PS- This trust exists because of and is guided by the inspiration of two amazing women.

Shevantabai Dhumal, my mother, who was functionally literate but wanted me to follow the footsteps of my father. He had pioneered setting up schools in villages through the “Rayat Shikshan Sanstha” in Ahmednagar District immediately after independence. She gave us the seed capital to start by selling off her land and instructing me to ensure that the money is used to educate girls. It is also based on her inspiration that we have started schools not just in Mumbai but in rural Maharashtra.

The second is a born teacher, a tireless innovator and also happens to be my wife. Sushma, has poured her being into these schools and everything they are is a reflection of her take on what fantastic education means.
