Marathi classes started in Toronto just over thirty years back. Sharad Kawale, put forward the idea of Marathi teaching. Shriram Mulgund, Asha Pawagi, Sharad Kawale, Mandatai Tilak got together and formalized the in house classrooms as per students' age group and with convenience of demographic region. Shriram Mulgund took the lead to organize the satellite informal classes. Each Sunday many volunteer parents held the role as teachers for five to six classes in North York, Scarborough, Brampton and Mississauga. Multi level age group children attended these classes. The classes continued in the homes of teachers or parents with genuine interest, strong commitments and passion for Marathi Language learning.
Volunteer teaching services were provided by Sharad Kaka Kawale, Shriram Mulgund, Anand Manohar, Mandatai Tilak, Asha Pawagi, Pusha Wagale, Lalita Godse, Mangal Junnarkar, Meena Ghanekar, Pravina Kale and Sunanda Tumne during these years.
Marathi Learning activity is always supported and held under the umbrella of Marathi Bhashik Mandal, Inc Toronto. MBM provided the community room place, the guidance and the funding for books and other teaching materials.
