�Provide all possible facilities to each school. ( Its own school building, Lab, Library, play ground, computer labs)
�Introduce new learning techniques
�Get help from former students to give guidance and motivation to students
�Provide more opportunities to the students for higher education
A socially conscious team of self driven individuals with different background and professions came together to form Lokanayak Shikshan Madal with primary aim of educating underprivileged children from Sanjay nagar, Ahilya nagar, and Yashwant nagar slums in Sangli district for free of cost or for very nominal charges.

Primary aim of the trust is to provide quality education to the children from Sangli slum area where majority of the slum dwellers are factory or mill workers with meager salaries. The trust has played an important role in shifting local mindset where the general tendency was to make children work to meet both ends. With establishment of Trust�s schools, people from these areas are enrolling their children to earn higher education.
The trust believes in providing better future to underprivileged children by giving them quality education. The trust also engages its students and local community in basic health awareness programs and several other extra curricular activities.
