1. History, Situation and Infrastructure:
Graced with natural beauty, the port city of Chittagong is known as the queen of beauty of the East. But in order to transform a city which lags behind in the sectors of education and culture, into the centre point of wisdom and knowledge, the first step is to increase the opportunities and facilities of acquiring education and knowledge. Besides expanding the quality of education it is necessary to establish good educational institutions. To make Chittagong a commercial capital, in the true sense it is inevitable to increase the quality of education and health-care.
In 1994 the Mayor of Chittagong City Corporation identified education as the prerequisite for national progress increasing the number of schools and upgraded a couple of girls' schools into girls' colleges. At present Chittagong City Corporation runs a full-pledged Premier University, 09 colleges amongst which 03 are degree colleges, 01 computer institute, 04 computer colleges, 01 Institute of Health and Technology, 43 high schools, 06 kindergartens, 02 primary schools, and about 600 Forkania madrashas. More than 35 thousand students are getting sufficient opportunities and different facilities in education in a standard and disciplined environment from these institutions. Amongst these institutions Kapasgola City Corporation Mohila College has been established as an important part of the vast academic curriculum of Chittagong City Corporation.
Women empowerment and active participation of women in different fields are important for the proper evolution of economic development and social advancement of any country. For this, extensive expansion of female education is essential. Decade after decade women have been deprived of the right of education due to superstition and imprudent mentality of the society. For this reason our social evolution and development of the state is facing great obstacles at every step. If we want to free the nation from this hostile situation, the women-folk must be fit and qualified to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
