About KBWC

Khairun Nessa Begum Women’s College the 8th venture of ERD Foundation is to be established at Badarpur. The college is affiliated to Assam University, Silchar & it is operational from the session 2015-2016.

Vision:

 If we educate a male; we educate an individual, but if we educate a female; we educate a generation.

“Our vision is of a world where all girls are empowered through quality education to realize their full potentialities & responsibilities, so that they can contribute to become a successful family manager & in the process make the society a better place to live in through participatory teaching learning process maintaining community and religious culture”.

Location :

The location for establishing the college is selected as Badarpur because it lies close to the National Highway No. 44 that connects Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Tripura and the rest of the Barak Valley. Moreover, Badarpur is also well connected by both railways and river transport.

Why Women’s College ?

In order to break the barriers in female education especially for the downtrodden rural women from minority communities the foundation has decided to set up Khairun Nessa Begum Women’s College. Whereas the minority women literacy rate in Assam is only 40% and accordingly women’s participation is also very less in higher education. This decision of the foundation is encouraged by the recommendations made by the Committee on Girls’ Education, Ministry of HRD, Govt. of India.

Who is Khairun Nessa Begum ?

The name of the College is dedicated in the loving memory of the Founder - Mahbubul Hoque’s mother, late Khairun Nessa Begum. Although she was illiterate at that time, she sacrificed her whole life by facing lots of obstacles to make her all sons educated & well established in the society. Mr. Hoque, who was her seventh son, has single handedly established all the institutions under the foundation & always struggling relentlessly for the cause of education. He always recalls his mother’s contribution.
