The time when a girl was denied the ‘Right to Education’, this college took the initiative and started fighting for the ‘Right to Education’ for girls. This college successfully fought against all odds and the society realised the importance of educating a girl child. This college right from its inception to the date has successfully fought the battle for ‘Liberalisation of Women’ and ‘Right to Education’ for women against the then society’s strong opposition to the welfare of women.

This college has been fighting for the ‘Right to Primary Education’ to a girl child, established a foundation for the distressed women, for widows, for women abandoned by their family, and women facing other problems, helping them in being independent thus giving them hope for a better and prosperous life.

Even after its 100 years, the main aim of this college remains the same ‘Betterment of Women’.
