Past few decades have witnessed a significant transformation in the educational status of Kerala Muslims, who were educationally most backward. The Muslim Educational Society is one of the main architects of such transformation.
The movement was started by a group of socially conscious and well-known professionals, intellectuals & educationists. Businessmen whole-heartedly supported the venture. The society has been promoting a large number of educational projects and programs from primary schools to professional colleges. In a short span of time, its activities spread to almost every district in Kerala and a large number of MES educational institutions were started. Today the Society runs more than 150 institutions including more than 50 Schools, a number of Post Graduate Colleges, Women's Colleges, Professional institutions like Engineering Colleges, Architecture College, Medical College, Nursing College and Dental College. ln addition to these institutions in the states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu, MES established institutions in the West Asian countries like Saudi -Arabia, U. A.E., Qatar and Muscat.
