About Us

Village Ajara is situated in the rural, economically backward and hilly area of the Western Ghats of the Kolhapur district. It is a small cosmopolitan town having a Gram Panchayat. In 1960s it was a very backward taluka having no educational facilities of higher education. The people were tradition-bound and rather orthodox as it is obvious. So Janata Education Society had to start the educational movement. The Society was established in 1965 and started Std. VIIIth class of Ajara High School, Ajara in Virshaiv Lingayat Math Ajara. The founder members of the JE Society did not have then any political or economic support. Starting a new High School was really a challenge before them and the JE Society developed this High School in spite of a strong opposition.

Ajara belonged to the Jahagir of Inchalkaranji (Ghorpade Sarkar). It was surrounded by a big ditch . With great efforts the JE Society could obtain the present land from the Govt. of Maharashtra.
