Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Education Society was founded in 1990 and Dr. B. R. Ambedkar Education and Social Welfare Trust Society in 1994 by Mr. S. B. Ghatage in Kudachi.

The society is dedicated to the cause of improving the literacy rate in the rural town. With this noble aim in mind the first educational institution Ajit Bane Kannada Higher Primary School was established in 1990.This was followed by B. Shankaranand Pre University College of Arts Commerce and Science established 1991. The positive response generated by this venture encouraged them to open other educational institutions, Ajit Bane English Medium School, Ajit Bane Kannada Medium School and New High School in Kudachi.

In 2001-02 our Society decided to spread its operations to the urban areas and Belgaum which was poised on the brink of an educational revolution seemed to be the logical choice for expansion. Love Dale Central School became our flagship institution in Belgaum. As a visionary organization, which anticipated the rise in demand for trained teachers the society set up Sagar College of Education in 2004. The success of its first school in Belgaum was a motivation to open Good Shepherd Central School in 2009 which is also recognized by Central Board of Secondary Education. This was followed by the inauguration of Blooming Buds School which is recognized by the State Government of Karnataka.

The latest feather in our cap is the establishment in 2013 of the Academy for Research and Training in School Teachers (ARTIST) which is a unique concept as it is involved with providing active support in the operations of all our educational institutions.
