Enabling Prosperity

Pravara Rural Education Society creates prosperity - educational, social, economical, cultural, physical and psychological - for complete student development.

"We started with a handful of students under a thatched shed called Pravara Public School in 1964. But our story dates back to 1950 when the Pravara Cooperative Sugar Factory enabled prosperity for hitherto debt-ridden farmers. Pravara Rural Education Society took things to the next level by utilizing education for nation building, women empowerment, and integrated rural development. Today, our 42 thousand plus students and over 1 lakh alumni continue to carry forward our values to the world as we create synergy between the global and the local."
