It was generally felt by the members of the Foundation that women in general and Muslim women, in particular are most backward in education and hence unable to meet their own needs and that of the their own family and society. Education should make them self confident and well informed, so that they can face the problems of life easily and boldly. It should help them to cultivate a sound mind and broad mindedness to live in harmony with all their neighbours and countrymen. So educating a girl will brighten up the educational atmosphere in the family. With this aim the All India Islamic Foundation has ventured to start a Residential Matriculation Higher Secondary School for Girls in the historically great city, Madurai.
