In the late seventies of the last century, Sangamner - a rural area was suffering from poverty, illiteracy, drought and unemployment. The basic cause of all these evils was rightly identified by Honorable Late Shri. Bhausaheb Santuji Thorat, a leader of cooperative movement, a great visionary and philanthropist. He converted his thoughts into reality by creating educational and training facilities. For this, he has founded the Amrutvahini Sheti and Shikshan Vikas Sanstha in 1978 to provide education to the poor farmer at his doorstep, which boosted the socioeconomic progress of the rural people. The Sanstha is running following educational institutions:
- Amrutvahini College of Engineering (AVCOE)
- Amrutvahini Polytechnic
- Amrutvahini Model School
- Amrutvahini Institute of Management and Business Administration.
- Amrutvahini College of Pharmacy
- Amrutvahini Industrial Training Institute
- Amrutvahini Institute of Pharmacy. (D- Pharmacy)
- Amrutvahini International School.
A chain of institutions has made an impact on Sangamner Township and has given urban outlook to the region. Namdar Shri Balasaheb Thorat,Ex.Minister for Agriculture, Water conservation and Khar Lands, Revenue Govt. of Maharashtra is striving hard for the further development to meet the global quality standards in education and it will excel in days to come under his dynamic and pragmatic leadership.
