“Shri Datta Shikshan Prasarak Mandal Panutre is committed to educational revolution for sustainable social development in the hilly and rural area of Kale.”
From the Desk of Chairman Shri. Vitthal Shankar Patil
The village Kale is situated at the center of four Talukas, i.e. Panhala, Gaganbawda, Shahuwadi and Radhanagari. This place is a backward, rural and hilly area. The population of Kale village is about 15,000 and Kale is a market place for 60 villages with the population of about 80,000. The famous Anuskara Dam is about 25 Km. away from Kale, and Kale village is surrounded by several mountains. The campus of institute consists a large building and a big play ground, for that we have to dig the hard rocks of mountain.
In the decade of 1980 this Kale region has very limited educational facilities. Student especially girls have to travel 25 Km. distance to reach district place i.e. Kolhapur. Considering this difficulty of society, institution decided to provide K. G. to P. G. education. So far we establish Prathmik Vidyalaya, Vitthal Patil Madhyamic and Junior College (which is earlier known as Girls High School), D. Ed. College, English Medium School, Mahatma Phule Hostel for Backward Class Students. Varishatha Kala Mahavidyalaya Kale was started in 2000-2001, which is now known as Vitthalrao Patil Mahavidyalaya, Kale.
Because of rural and hilly nature of region only 11 % students are taking higher education. We want to increase this percentage up to 70 %. For that purpose recently in year 2010-11 we have started B.Sc. and B.Com. We also succeed in gating clearance for P.G. courses of Marathi and Political Science, but because of some technical reasons these courses cannot be started in this academic year. We have started two trades of ITI from year 2012-13 and Institution is now planning for more professional courses like Polytechnic.
The vision of the institute is to bring educational revolution in Kale region, channelize the sustainable social development which encompasses social, economic and political development, for that we are committed to provide quality based education. In resent past years we have achieved many land marks. But lot of work is yet to be done, and for that we need some financial inputs. For Indian donors we have 80G certificate and for foreign donors we have FCRA certificate too. So, I take this opportunity to appeal you for your actively support in political, financial and official matters for this noble cause.
Certain remedies are under consideration to make avail higher education and increase admission of college. For it, the institution has started B.Sc. and B.Com courses (three years) since the academic year 2010 – 2011 onward.
The vision of the institute is to became excellent educational academy and develop human resources in Kale region, and for that we are committed to provide quality based education. It witnesses by many scholarships, honours to students and faculties.
I take this opportunity to appeal you for your actively support for this noble cause. For donors to institute, we have made provisions such as 80G certificate & FCRA certificate (for international donors).
