Jay Shivray Education Society, Murgud was founded by late Hon. Sadashivrao Mandlik (M.P), a visionary leader in western Maharashtra, in 1960 with the motto ‘Kuni na raho durbal adnya, yachsathi ha shikshan yadyna’. During this time educational facilities in this area were pitiable. Wards of farmers had to travel around 20 kms for secondary, higher secondary and higher education. Most of the students, especially girls, discontinued their education at primary level due to dearth of educational facilities. Considering the situation, Hon. Mandlik saheb started Shivraj Vidyalaya, Murgud in 1960 to impart education to the students from hilly, rural and backward area.
At the outset Mandlik saheb and his wife late. Sou. Vijaya Mandlik contributed as teacher in the same school. As the years rolled on, the institution realized the educational needs of this region. Accordingly, the institution weaved strong network of secondary and higher secondary schools, Ashram schools, hostels, Industrial Training Institutes, English medium schools etc. in this region. Meanwhile, in 1990 Hon. Mandlik saheb realized the difficulties faced by rural girls for obtaining higher education and he established The New College of Arts and Commerce to overcome this educational lacuna in Murgud . It is the center of 25 to 40 nearby villages. Later on the college was renamed in 1995 as Sadashivrao Mandlik Mahavidyalaya, Murgud. Now the institutes runs two pre-primary schools, eleven high schools, two ashram schools, two English medium school, two Hostels, five Higher secondary schools, one Girls’ High school, one ITI, one Senior college also. Around 7212 students are taking education in the various branches of this institute. Four hundred and six Employees are serving to expand, enlarge and to excel this educational movement to accomplish the vision of late Hon. Sadashivraoji Mandliksaheb.
