“Educate a man, you educate one person, educate a woman, you educate a complete family.”
― Greg Mortenson
Girls’ education is like sowing the seed which gives rise to green, cheerful and full grown family plant. Lack of education denies the girl child, the knowledge and skills needed to advance their status. Education enables the child to realize her full potential, to think, question and judge independently. It makes her a wise decision-maker, develop civic sense and learn to respect, love her fellow human beings and to be a good citizen.
Ms. Helen Jerwood, a woman of strength laid the foundation of Queen Mary’s School and many other extended institutions. Carrying forward her vision and mission to educate the girl child, Queen Mary’s has been a pioneer in nurturing the girl child for almost a century now and is still playing a lead role in this direction.
“The hand that rocks the cradle, the procreator, the mother of tomorrow; a woman shapes the destiny of civilization.”
