GRAMIN SHIKSHAN PRASARAK MANDAL (GSPM) was established on 29th September 1965 with a futuristic vision to provide quality education by applying innovative and vibrant instructional techniques. In the beginning, the trust focused on providing basic school education to the students who are on the periphery of the social strata and exclusively in rural areas. Late Shivramji Pawar, the founder of the trust, envisioned the role of technical education along with the elementary education in the decade of 1980s when only traditional education was at its bloom.He envisioned that only technical education can uplift the rural youths. So, the GSPM extended its services to provide quality technical education. Now, the group provides quality education ranging from primary level to post graduate level in Nanded district where it was originally established and in course of time, it extended its services to some other districts in the Marathwada region of Maharashtra.
A chain of schools and colleges offering professional courses in Diploma & Degree Engineering, I.T.I., Food Technology, Hotel Management, Medical Lab Technology, Operation Theatre Technician, Biochemistry, Food Science stand testament to the undertakings of the Trust. Students studying with GSPM Group of institutions are given placements in some of the leading organizations in India and abroad. Many deserving students are absorbed as teaching faculty in GSPM’s institutes.
