Shri Premnath Vidyalaya started about 20 years ago in a Thergoan Village of Latur District in Maharashtra. The school is named after Shri Premnath Maharaj who was reknowned for his community service. Currently it has about 200 students enrolled in grades I to X. These students come from the families of village who are predominately agricultural laborers and peasant workers. The school gets government funding and collects a small amount of tuition fees from the students. The school has about 10 teachers.

In August 2003, FINITE started the scholarship program in this school by providing scholarships to 12 meritorious students from grade V to grade X. Scholarships were given to those students who either secured first or second ranks in their class. Since then we have been distributing scholarships every year.
In November 2006, FINITE started a library in this school with 120 books, 20 charts, dictionaries and a globe atlas. The books and charts were chosen from the areas of science, literature, history, general knowledge and mathematics. Special emphasis was laid on the learning of English language.
