Movement of Backward Class School

As a part of freedom movement, shri Bhai Saththa founded a bording school in Ahmednagar. The school became the center of freedom movement of Ahmednagar district. The school provided vocational training and lessons of independence struggle. But British noticed it and prohibited the school. And they sealed it too. They stopped the grant. The school was about to close. Com. Abasaheb Kakade and his followers determined to run the school at any cost, as many pupils were learning in it. Frightened by government, people, willing to help, would not come forward to help it. In spite of government’s wrath, com. Abasaheb Kakade, Madhukarao Katre and Kamgar Kisan Party workers started a campaign to collect food grain for inmates. With help of devoted followers, they collected food grain by jeep, on bicycle, sometimes on foot. Thus the boarding school survived.

There were'nt any educational facility at rural level, not even at taluka place. There was tremendous poverty. It was hard to have two time meals for most of the pupils. Educational facilities were at cities. But poor pupils from rural area left the school incomplete due to lack of food and residence. Because of the lack of food supplies and residential facilities, children of the poor and the farmers gave up their education. Realizing the need of the hour, shri Bhai Saththa founded a hostel at Ahmednagar. In this boarding children of the backward, the poor,etc. lived and learned. Shri Sant Gadge Maharaj often visited and stayed in the hostel.

Com. Abasaheb Kakade was not only fan of Shri Bhai Saththa but also was main co-worker in his social and political fields. Com. Abasaheb Kakade was impressed by great response to the hostel at Ahmednagar. He made his mind to continue the same work in Shevgaon and Pathardi talukas. Villages from mofussil areas urged Com. Abasaheb Kakades should initiate some learning facilities for their deprived children. He felt deep concern for illiterate and down trodden communities and founded FDL to open the doors of literacy to them. He started boarding houses at Shevgaon, Pathardi and Karjat for boys and girls.

Com. Abasaheb Kakade launched St. Gadge Maharaj Chhatralaya at Shevgaon in his own house in 1955. He also started St. Gadge Maharaj Kanya Chhatralaya at Shevgaon to provide educational facilities to girls. He provided drinking water by digging a well in the premise of boarding. He looked after them very carefully and used to dine with them. Prof. Damodhar Jadhav, Funde Guruji(Primary teacher) and Hon. Pandharinath Bargaje – (former M.D. of Mula co-operative sugar factory) were brought up in the boarding school. He set up boarding schools at Dhorjalgaon(She), Shahartakali, Chapadgaon, Amrapur, Kambi, Bhatkudgaon, Mangrul, from Shevgaon taluka, Pathardi and Bhalegaon from Pathardi taluka and Karjat from Karjat taluka in Ahmednagar district(Maharashtra). In the absence of any fund from government, just like he collected food grain for A’nagar boarding school, he made same effort for boarding school at Shevgaon, Pathardi and Karjat with the help of his colleagues. Thus they stored food grain from various villages.Children of poor, laborers’, farm-workers, cane-workers, and the neglected by society were given learning opportunities through these boarding schools. He started lower and higher remand homes for orphan children, children who deprived of their parents’ love and affection. He showered the same on them.
