The Swatantrya Senani Bhagawanji Dayabhai Desai High School is run by Pardi Taluka Welfare Charitable Trust, a non-profit NGO. It is a highly popular institute as it provides high-quality free education and other facilities like free notebooks, uniforms, and transportations to the underprivileged tribal population.
The S. S. B. D. Desai High School, a non-granted private school, was established in 2008 at Desai street, Vatar, in a small rented house. The founder of the school is Mr. Dinesh R. Desai, who wanted to fulfill his father’s dream of establishing a high school in the village.
The school is dedicated to his grandfather, Bhagawanji Dayabhai Desai, who was a freedom fighter.
Mr. Dinesh, who grew up in this village, was disturbed by the fact that around 70% of the villagers were extremely poor and only primary education was available even for those who could afford education. Most of the children from the village couldn’t study beyond primary education as the school for higher studies was in another town, the fees and transportation costs being unaffordable. Mr. Dinesh was aware and worried about these circumstances and decided to establish a secondary and higher secondary school for poor children. The S. S. B. D. Desai High School was founded in 2008 with the purpose to give best quality education for free to the deserving underprivileged children in the village of Vatar and neighboring villages.
The land for this school was donated by Mrs. Kanchenben Harshadbhai Desai and Late Ishawarbhai Nagrji Desai, who were sympathetic to the underprivileged students. The school is situated at Brahmdev Hill on Vatar- Morai road educating 170 students. Being in a hilly region, the school premises are picturesque, clean and peaceful.
The school celebrated its 10 year anniversary in January 2018. Seven batches of 10th grade and five batches of 12th grade have so far graduated from the school. Many of these students have started their journey towards being successful professionals in the fields of engineering, teaching, pharmacy and more.
The responsibilities of the school administration are overseen by Mr. Kishore Desai, brother of Mr. Dinesh Desai. Kishore plays a significant role in shaping the future of all the students and continues to lead the lives of the tribal and poor students.
