Dr. Ambedkar College of Social Work a prestigious Social Work College, affiliated to Rashtra Sant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University, is one of the first colleges of Social Work in the district of Wardha. Inspired by the ideals of Mahatma Phule and Babasaheb Ambedkar, the college was established as Buddhist educational institution in August 1993 by the Subhedar Ramji Ambedkar Educational Society which in turn was founded by honorable Dinesh Baliram Sawai, a frontline leader of Dalit and Buddhist movement, a prominent Ambedkarite and an educationalist.

Subhedar Ramji Ambedkar Education Society is one of the most reputed and well known educational societies in Vidarbha region which has spread over its work in Wardha, Deoli, Hinganghat towns of Wardha and Yeotmal districts. Under the visionary leadership of honorable Dinesh Baliram Sawai, the Founder President of Subhedar Ramji Ambedkar Education Society, the society realizes the importance of education and also that traditional and formal education courses will not bring about constructive social and economical changes. The availability of professional education and training courses is must.

This vision was realized with the foundation of Dr. Ambedkar College of Social Work in Wardha. As the college provides professional social work education through imparting 3 year Bachelors in Social Work (BSW) and 2 year Masters in Social work (MSW) programs, it has specialized salient features and objectives to provide opportunities to the students of Social Work to all the classes and categories. These are as follows:

– To make self reliable, self dependent and enlighten competent youth who will be ready to accept social civic responsibilities

– To promote social equality through overall personality development and professional opportunities

– To prepare trained professional social worker who have clear understanding of social system and its issues, challenges and problems so that they are able to bring about desired changes

– To create social sensitivity and sense of responsibility by providing value based atmosphere by networking with various committed organizations and institutions.

Situated in Sawangi Mege (Wardha grampanchayat) on Wardha – Yeotmal road, Dr Ambedkar College of Social Work due to its rigorous academic environment, competent faculty and high moral vision has benefited thousands of students since its inception by imparting them training and education in the sphere of social work and provided them an opportunity to not only better their careers but also contribute to the benefit of the larger society.

The college, true to its focus on imparting education among those who had no earlier access, has provided much needed space especially for the students from the rural agricultural background. Among its students the large numbers come from the first generation literate and poor families. The majority of these students are young women from SC/ST/NT/DNT/OBC background which makes it a very unique educational institution in the region of Vidarbha.

KNOWLEDGE IS THE FOUNDATION OF A MAN’S LIFE

Knowledge is the foundation of a man’s life

Bharat Ratna Bodhisattva Babasaheb Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar:

Dear friends,

While founding The People’s Education Society, on the 8th of July 1945, to manage several educational institutions for the betterment of large mass of marginalized and poor sections of Indian society that was historically denied the fruits of education, Babasaheb Ambedkar said:

‘The Society’s objective is not merely to give education but to give education in such a manner as to promote intellectual, moral and social democracy. This is what modern India needs today and this is what all well wishers of India must promote.’

The educational institutions run by the Society established by Babasaheb has been instrumental in bringing vast changes in the Maharashtrian society and has been the harbinger of growth, equality and assertion for the erstwhile ‘untouchables’, Adivasis and other marginalized sections of our society. However more such efforts are required, especially in the educationally and economically backward areas of our state as the education is the sine qua non of the liberation of any community, especially the marginalized ones.

Keeping this in mind and with the inspiration of our beloved leader we formed a Buddhist (Minority) education society under the banner of Subhedar Ramji Ambedkar Education Society in 1992. Since then, with the objectives of providing facilities for secondary, collegiate, technical, physical education and the like and to establish, conduct educational institutions such as schools, colleges, hostels, libraries etc., for the poor and marginalized sections, our society has been running number of Buddhist (Minority) educational institutions in the two districts of Vidarbha region namely Wardha and Yeotmal. These are:

    • — Chetana D.Ed , B.Ed and M.Ed College at Sawangi, Wardha
    • — Subhedar Ramji Ambedkar Physical Education College, Hinganghat, Wardha
    • — Mahatma Phule College of Social Work, Yeotmal
    • — Dr Ambedkar College of Social Work, Wardha.
    • — Chetana I.T.I. College,Wardha.
    • — Dr. AMBEDKAR DT.ed. college,YEOTMAL
    • — Oxford Public School,Waigaon,Wardha.

Since last two decades these institutions have been instrumental in providing opportunities for thousands of students from marginalized sections of our society, aspiring for the quality higher education, mostly from the rural background. These institutions have also been instrumental in propagating the noble teachings of Buddha, Phule Shahuji Maharaj and Babasaheb Ambedkar not only among the student community but among the masses too.

We sincerely hope that our Educational Society continues to provide quality education and contribute not only towards improving the educational standards of our Vidarbha region, our state Maharashtra but towards building a nation of the dreams of our leaders, our icons.

Jaibhim!
Dinesh Baliram Sawai
President, Subhedar Ramji Ambedkar Education Society, Wardha

Bharat Ratna Bodhisattva Babasaheb Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar:

Knowledge is the foundation of a man’s life

Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar (14 April 1891 – 6 December, 1956)

 

“Knowledge is the foundation of a man’s life”

Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar (14 April 1891 – 6 December, 1956) was our country’s tallest personality – a nation builder, a human right fighter, a champion of equality, liberty and fraternity, a jurist, a philosopher, a path breaking thinker, a historian, an economist, the greatest revivalist of Buddhism, the chief architect of the Indian Constitution and above all the greatest educationalist- our country has witnessed till now. Born into a poor, the then untouchable, family, he spent his whole life fighting for the rights of most marginalized sections of Indian society who had been historically deprived of all human rights including the most coveted one – access to education.

Apart from his numerous efforts in granting equal socio-political and economic rights to the then untouchables, tribal other backward castes and women through ensuring the incorporation of adequate safeguards and provisions in Indian Constitution, Babasaheb Ambedkar made immense contribution in the field of education. He firmly believed that education was the only effective lever for the uplift of the down-trodden. It was only through education that the suffering Indian masses could be made conscious of their rights as human beings.

To commemorate Babasaheb’s efforts, foresightedness and initiative that brought a silent revolution among the marginalized masses of the country and to carry forward his work in the educationally backward region of Vidarbha in Maharashtra, Subhedar Ramji Ambedkar Education Society, was formed in Wardha in 1992 and is now running number of educational institutions providing quality education to the students from across the marginalized communities. In doing so, we remember Babasaheb Ambedkar’s work, salute his legacy and reiterate our commitment towards providing education for all!
