Sarva Vidyalaya Kelavani Mandal
Sarva Vidyalaya Kelavani Mandal has been established in the year 1919, by a Philanthropist Pujya Chhaganbha. The basic principle preached by him “કર ભલા હોગા ભલા” has been the driving force for the growth of the education activities managed by the trust. Having started with just 6 students then, today the trust manages and runs various schools and colleges both at Kadi and Gandhinagar with more than 50000 students being educated. Of these 50000 students, around 8000 students, both boys and girls, stay in the hostels being managed by the trust.
The trust is being nourished by the society on the whole and managed by its alumni who occupy respectable positions in the society. The overseas Indian Community showers in donations to benefit the students for providing them better facilities for study as well as stay.
The trust has always been in the fore front for provision of value-based education to all the students in schools and colleges irrespective of Caste, Creed, Religion etc. Keeping in with the main motto “Kar Bhala Hoga Bhala” the admissions to the various courses are strictly conducted on the basis of merit.
The trust also has taken up activities like adopting anganwadi’s and Government Schools at Gandhinagar and is very much committed to take these initiatives forward with rigor for betterment of the children in these places.

Optimism, tradition, inclusiveness, service, compassion, tolerance, hope and faithfulness are the underpinnings of Sarva Vidyalaya Kelvani Mandal for over decades now.
It is in this context, we have taken a step forward aspiring towards excellence with this school enhancing the already laid foundation of our education on human values. We seek to instil in our students a passion for learning that will bring the knowledge and understanding they will need not only to be global ready but also to make a positive contribution to the communities in which we live and work.

I would like to thank you all for trusting us over the years now. As the trust enters its centenary year, I, on behalf of Sarva Vidyalaya Kelvani Mandal would like to welcome one and all to come and be a part of our endeavour for making our children better citizens of tomorrow.
