In spite of great progress made by our country there is still a huge demarcation between rural & urban population especially in the field of education.
With the noble intention of bridging this gap in access to education,
Prof. Musa Majrooh, a noted educationist & poet, laid the foundation of ‘Sir Syed College of Commerce & Management’ in Deoria district, Uttar Pradesh, India. He was one the first few people from this area who received good education and went ahead to work in various universities as professor & later retired in the capacity of principal. All through his career spanning more than 40 years he helped setting up many colleges, orphanages & career institutes to bring the underprivileged to the forefront. So, as obvious for the philanthropist he was; he used his life time savings in setting up this institute in his native place, where there was no such degree college. The ‘Sir Syed College of Commerce & Management’ is affiliated to ‘Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gorakhpur University’, Gorakhpur. Degrees in the field of arts, commerce, management & vocational course are provided by the institute.
In 2001, when he laid the foundation there were not even good roads that could provide accessibility to this interior area. But now, the college has become a noted name in the district from where many youngsters have moved to premier universities & good posts in India & abroad.
After his demise in 2009, the institute is now run by the management of ‘Sir Syed Society’ formed in his memory. The management of the institute strives to take his vision forward but is currently facing hurdles due to lack in funds.
The institute has always made sincere efforts in uplifting local residents & their progeny by making higher education accessible as well as affordable in their neighbourhood.
As you all might be aware we operate in a region where economic stratum of people is not very glossy. The recent pandemic has further pushed the local (majorly migrant) community to the brink where higher education has become the last priority especially in case of girls. We believe that quality education is a basic right of every youngster irrespective of their social or economic strata.
Hence, we have started this campaign to seek your assistance in carrying our founder’s dream forward. Kindly, donate to our campaign in whatever capacity possible so that our dream can turn into reality!
