"Dr. Dada Vaidya", "Shri Vinayak Sarjyotishi" & "Shri Sitaram Kerkar"
Goa Vidyaprasarak Mandal (GVM) was originally named as Liga da Propaganda de Insrucaoem Goa and was founded on the auspicious day of "Vijayadashmi" in the year 1911 A. D. (which was Monday, 2nd October), by some great visionaries of those times, namely, Dr. Dada Vaidya, Shri Sitaram Kerkar and Shri Vinayak Sarjyotishi. Goa was passing through a difficult historical period, as the entire region along with Daman & Diu was under the Portuguese rule. Fortunately, the establishment of Republic of Portugal in the year 1910 created a window of opportunity for the Goan community to establish their own institutions.
