Having this thought in mind and inspiration from great men like Dr. Panjabrao alias Bhausaheb Deshmukh (Former Agriculture Minister, GOI & Founder President of Shri Shivaji Education Society) and Padma Vibhushan Bar. Ramrao Deshmukh (Former MP & High Commissioner to South Africa, GOI). All founder member established Vidarbha Youth Welfare Society in 1965 with the aim of providing education to the poor and backward community of this region.
