Before 1960, Malshiras Taluka in Solapur district was a drought prone dry area slated for change by an extraordinary man with an unusual vision and a relentless spirit to better things in this area for his people. Sahakar Maharishi (Father of the Cooperative Movement) Late Shri Shankarrao Mohite-Patil, through his social dynamism and persistent hard work brought about the cooperative movement and led forward with Socio-economic Projects, Agriculture, Education, Industrialization, Irrigation etc. In the educational sector he has set up a number of schools including a residential school in Akluj (Maharashtra) started in 1975.
Vijaysinh Shakarrao Mohite-Patilâ€™s socio-political learning began at home at a young age of 15 years. From being elected the Village Sarpanch or Chief to becoming the Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra; heading forward the cooperative movement in his village to ensuring all round growth of his state, this hero of the masses has seen it all. With his foresight he was able to extend his father’s legacy by holding countless political positions along with many posts in cooperative and other important industries. The best thing about this leader is that he leads by example. Greenfingers Global School is a new educational initiative that will strive to equip children with a better future.
Established in 2006, the school provides a truly enabling environment to contribute to the holistic development of each student. It is the second in the chain of English schools founded by the Mohite-Patil family. It is a co-educational English medium school providing schooling from Nursery to Class XII.
The school is alive to the challenge of moulding students to be lifelong learners by developing their skills as academic achievers, progressive thinkers, effective communicators and empowered citizens who ‘think local but act global’.
