It is indeed a great privilege & a unique opportunity for me to communicate to you through this medium. The primary objective of education is to promote literacy, but at the same time it should help mould personalities. Our aim is to impart “Value-laden, outcome- based learning” to equip young impressionable minds to fulfill their dreams while being considerate to their fellow human being. The out come that we envision will be a group of young individuals that will be healthy of mind & body, well-learned, well-equipped & poised to create & take advantage of opportunities that will enable them to lie in the vanguard of the next generation. Our institution will serve as the proving ground for a new generation of leaders and visionaries that will blaze a trial in the next several years!!

‘Quality, it is said, is never an accident; but the synergistic result of noble intention, sincere effort, skillful planning, intelligent direction, dedicated teamwork, sustained collaborative inputs and competent execution to the last syllable’ Quality in Higher Education has always remained a challenge due to the ever widening gap between academics and ground realities and this rift is at an all time high owing to rapid unprecedented and sometimes frightening advances in technology all around us. ‘Education with a human touch’ has been our goal in this institution of higher learning established with the aim of providing higher education to girls; something which we strive to fulfill, and results of which are amply apparent in the smiling happy faces, honesty and twinkle in the eyes of all our young learners. On behalf of the Konkan Muslim Education Society of Thane District, I heartily welcome you to our K.M.E. Society’s G.M. Momin Women’s College. read more...
