Student Development Board
Earn and Learn Scheme
The Rayat Shikshan Sanstha, Satara is pioneer in the field of rural development through education. Today it occupies a prominent place on the education map not only of Maharashtra but also India. We are fortunate enough to have a rich heritage of the Rayat Shikshan Sanstha. The institution of very high repute committed to social justice and national integration. The Sanstha was founded by late Padmbhushan Dr. Karmaveer Bahurao Patil, popularly known as 'Karmaveer Anna'. He followed the footsteps of Mahatma Jyotiba Phule and Rajarshri Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj and firmly belived that education is the panacea for the social and economical problems of the society.
The foundation of the sanstha was led by opening boarding house for students of all religions, castes and creed at village "kale" in Karad Block of Satara district on 4th Oct 1919. In 1924 the head quarter of the sanstha was shifted to Satara.
The sanstha percieves the symbol of the aspirations of the common people. i.e. "Rayat ". "Education through self- help" is our moto and the sanstha strongly advocated the dignity of labour like the symbol.
Dr. karmaveer Bhaurao Patil was the first to begin earn and learn scheme in Rayat Shikshan Sanstha. Farmer, labour, children and different religious castes children face basic problem of earning. They are the children outside of education. "Education Thorugh Self- Help" is our moto. This word is used by our Rayat Shikshan Sanstha after the University.
