Chairman's Message

The educational scenario of Barak Valley Districts is quite satisfactory compared to rest of the state. Cachar,Karimganj and Hailakandi Distrcts hold 4th,5th and 11th rank among the 27 Districts of Assam. While state average of literary rate of persons is 73.18 it is 80.36,79.72 and 75.26 for Cachar,Karimganj and Hailakandi respectively. Similary literacy rate of female of Barak valley Districts is also higher than state average.While the state averge of female literacy rate is 67.27% it is 74.62,73.49 and 68.54 for Cachar,Karimganj and Hailakandi Districts respectively. While literacy rate of female of Barak Valley is satisfactory (even though it is much behind the male literacy rate) the share of women in higher education is very poor due to many factors. With the establishment of large number of high schools in every nook and corner of Barak Valley secondary and higher secondary education is now accessible to females of Barak Valley as never before. But due to existing socio economic condition in the Barak Valley most of the female students of rural areas drop out after secondary and higher secondary level mainly due to problem of accommodation in urban areas. This problem is more visible among the female students from rural areas of Barak Valley. As a result the girls students of Barak Valley specially from the Muslim community far behind their male counterparts in higher education.

In the above backdrop Education Research and Development Foundation(ERDF) which has devoted itself for spread of higher education in North East for more than a decade has decided to establish an women’s college at Srigouri,Badarpur under the name “ Khairun Nessa Begum Women’s College”(KBWC) with a mission to empower the women through quality education to realize their full potentials and to become successful family manager and in the process make the society a better place to live through participation in need based Higher Education.

The Khairun Nessa Begum Women’ College became operational from July 2015 under affiliation of Assam University Silchar. The college has its own building with all modern facilities. The modern hostel facilities in the college campus will provide secure and comfortable academic environment for the girl students of the region. We have the vision to make the KBWC a centre of excellence for women’s education in the region and turn it in to a Women’s University in course of time.

I wish all round growth and development of the new college and seek blessings and support from everyone.

M.Hoque,
Chairman, ERDF
