The year 1947 saw India win its freedom. The nation had to be rebuilt from ruins to achieve its former glory and regain its rightful place in International scenario. Education was acknowledged as main thrust area
Late Dr. H M Gangadharaiah, a staunch Gandhian and Buddhist, decided to address this cause. He envisioned an educational establishment which will disperse the seeds of knowledge and build a more intelligent society.
Sri Siddhartha Education Society (S.S.E.S) was established in the year 1959 with the warm blessings of the father of Bhoodan movement, “Saint Vinobha Bhave” with the objective of providing education to the student community coming from rural areas and backward classes.
Today SSES is considered among Karnataka’s Premier educational establishments. Highly regarded for its excellent infrastructure and quality faculty, it is widely recognized among India’s academic circle. Led by
Dr. G Shivaprasad, a postgraduate and an eminent ophthalmologist and
Dr. G Parameshwara, a Doctorate in Agriculture from Australia, SSES continues to march forward on the ideals set by their father, Late Dr. Gangadharaiah. Their commitment to nation building remains the same.
