The Maratha Vidya Prasarak Samaj is one of the most prestigious centers of learning in the State of Maharashtra. It has been over 109 years that it has stood the test of time to become legend of unparalleled stature. History says that the credit for the birth of M.V.P. Samaj goes to the young, enthusiastic and devoted team of social workers and educationists who were inspired by the lives of Mahatma Jyotiba Phule, Savitribai Phule and Rajashri Shahu Maharaj of Kolhapur. These young leading lights include Karmaveer Raosaheb Thorat, Karmaveer Ganpat Dada More, Karmaveer D. R. Bhonsale who laid the foundation of the Samaj and during the course of time Karmaveer Kakasaheb Wagh, Karmaveer Bhausaheb Hire, Karmaveer Annasaheb Murkute leads the organization and contributed towards its further journey.
