About WTES –
The Walwa Taluka Education Society (WTES) was founded in 1945 by Late Shri. S. D. Patil and his co-activists for educational uplift and welfare of the society. Late Shri. S. D. Patil was very active in social and political activities in the Southern Maharashtra. He was a well-known politician and timely elected as a President of Zillah Parishad from Sangli district, Member of Legislative Assembly (M. L. A.) and also as a Member of Parliament (M.P.).
He was interested in spreading education to the door of the masses. He believed that education can improve the life of the common and backward classes in rural Maharashtra. So he founded ‘Walwa Taluka Education Society’ in 1945 and started different educational institutions under this society. Today, the management runs 25 different educational institutions under prudent guidance of Adv. B. S. Patil (Anna), Honorary Secretary and Adv. Dhairyasheel Patil (Baba), Joint Secretary of ‘Walwa Taluka Education Society’.
