Devnar Foundation for the Blind was established with four students in a rented room. Within a span of 17 years, the school has grown to the present stature with 350 students, housed in a three-story building owned by the Foundation. This phenomenal growth is due to the undoubted ability and unflinching enthusiasm of the founder and his wife, the dedicated staff, many philanthropists and donors. Devnar School for the Blind is now acclaimed as the best institution for the Visually Challenged in India with the students aspiring to reach great heights of achievement, hitherto thought impossible for such children.
