President's Message


I m glad that Shri Swami Vivekanand Shikshan Sanstha, Kolhapur is celebrating the Birthday Centenary Year of Shikshanmaharshi Dr. Bapuji Salunkhe the visionary founder. He was a freedom fighter. Educationist & Social Contributor, who strove for life time to build the nation by educating society.

The ethnic diversity in India poses challenges to implement consistent education nationwide. There are different languages spoken in the country and which makes it difficult to offer education tailored for specific social segment. Educating women in some societies is a big issue. Children of poor families are forced to work and miss out the learning opportunities. Illiterate adults have very limited opportunities to get éducated at later age in their lives. But Shri Swami Vivekanand Shikshan Sanstha, rendering its valuable services in the field of education, is based on the values of love, unity and peace. This institution provides holistic education and is the pioneer in blending school education with a spiritual curriculum to help every stu treach his highest potential intellectually, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

I do hope that all the Sanskar Kendras of sanstha will continue to strive hard to achieve its motto, apart from imparting purposeful education to students. My best wishes for the success of the entire endeavor.


Hon, Chandrakant Patil.
