The population of Gujarat is agriculture oriented and is divided into small villages. Millions of people are living in villages where the higher education facilities are hardly available. Lack of higher education, minimum transport facilities and lack of basic amenities are part of their life. Because of lack of higher education facilities, they are ready to send their sons in cities. But they hesitate to send their daughters for further study. But in the words of Mahatma Gandhi “Lack of education in women hampers the all round development of the society.”
In such circumstances, a trustworthy higher educational institute for girls is utmost required.
To fulfil this purpose, the leading people of patidar community gathered and established a trust entitled Shree Khakhariya, Vadhiyar and Chuval Education Trust (Shree KVC Education Trust) for the upliftment and development of girls from Khakhariya, Vadhiyar and Chuval regions of Gujarat with hostel facilities in 1995.
Equal partnership of men & women is required in productive and reproductive life which includes shared responsibilities for nurturing future generation. Girls play vital role in developing society as a powerful woman is capable of taking proper decisions. By imparting higher education, the community leaders want to establish women empowerment through they we can enhance over all education empowerment, awareness and literary level which lead to sustainable development of the community.
In 1998, Shree Meghmani Parivar and Shree Bhailalbhai A. Patel(Detrojwala) Umiya Arts and Commerce College for Girls was established and has taken up the initiative for the growth of Patidar Community by imparting higher Education to girls. Ours is one of the most leading educational institutions for higher study in these regions which has included 18 Districts of Gujarat. It has made progress and has been achieving new milestones year after year. In order to fulfill the standards of excellence, the college has been trying its level best to improve the quality and content of education. In every discipline, we strive to keep pace with the progress of knowledge.
The college has been actively involved in inspiring diversified interests among the students to make them alert and dynamic. I am sure, it will shine out as an institution par excellence in future.
I am extremely happy that college has been participating in National rankings, Gujarat state ranking and has been accredited by NAAC for 3 times in year 2008, 2015 and 2021. it is always a moment of a pride when India Today in its survey declares college among Top 3 college of Ahmedabad city.
