Daring to Begin:

SPRJ Kanyashala Trust, a pioneer in women’s education, visualized and promoted women’s education at a time when it was not a priority. It has evolved since 1924, from a small Jain Pathshala, imparting religious education to 5 girls, to a multi-disciplinary educational academy imparting education through two schools, which are from pre-primary section to secondary section (Std. X), our Junior colleges (Affiliated to HSC Board), Degree colleges offering conventional and professional courses as well as Post graduate programmes, Add-on courses and a Career Institute, all under one roof to more than 7000 girls. Healthy, all round development of girls, who are the future of any society, is the fulcrum of the wheel, and all its activities spin around this. Here is a unique institution, which provides free/subsidised, top quality education without any discrimination of caste or religion!
