History, Location and School Campus





Lives of great men all remind us

We can make our lives sublime

 And, departing, leave behind us

footprints on the sands of time.”

                                                                  ...…Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


In the year 1939, Shri Karamshi Jethabhai Somaiya started two sugar factories – one in Sakarwadi and second in Laxmiwadi to mark the launch of his own sugar business. He soon came to be known as the “Sugar King of India”. It was the vision of Shri K. J. Somaiya that modern professional education must remain true to the spirit of Indian ethos and culture.


For the children of sugar factory workers, he established Somaiya Vidyamandir, Sakarwadi in the year 1959, and the Educational Officer of Zilla Parishad,  Ahmednagar granted permission for the classes of Std. 8th to 10th on 2nd March 1960. This was the first school in Sakarwadi and in the surrounding areas, which provides educational facilities to the nearby villages like Wari, Kanhegaon, Hanumanwadi, Sade, Bhojade, Dhotre, etc. 



Location of the school


Somaiya Vidyamandir is located in Sakarwadi on the banks of the river Godavari. It comes under Kopargaon taluka in Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra, which is 17 km away from the school. It is walkable distance from Kanhegaon railway station as well as Wari bus stop. The village is surrounded by different talukas like Shrirampur, Rahata, Kopargaon and Vaijapur which is hardly 25 km away from the school. The holy place Shri Sai Baba at Shirdi is just 16 km away from the school.



School campus


Somaiya Vidyamandir’s campus is spread across an area of 10 acres. The campus is nestled among old trees and greenery. The school building is attractive with spacious classrooms, ceremonial hall, well equipped badminton hall, library, science laboratory, computer laboratory, music and movie hall. Because of these facilities students are always engaged in different activities. At present, the school is having 645 students coming from different villages in and around Sakarwadi.
