A convivial, heartiest greetings from Kanyashree College, Behala Government College for Girls consistently imbibed with an ardent zeal of fostering academic excellence in students and scaffold them to reach their zone of proximal development in learning. It is an institution of higher education, that glorifies power, strength and exuberance innate to women. Education is one of the most important means of empowering women with the knowledge, skills and self-confidence necessary to participate fully in the development process. Women play a key role in building a nation, and every country is being known for the power of women's empowerment. It is an essential element for any nation. Promoting education among women helps them understand their individuality to refrain from any exploitation. India pioneered by Bengal, has seen many women achievers in each field due to encouraging women's education and it helped them improve their knowledge, which made them stronger and confident.
It has been aptly remarked by our first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru that one can tell the condition of a nation by looking at the status of women and no other than education can only empower women with the necessary lifeline. As a role model for how women in power can transform the future, in their own lives, for their families, for the state and the country, our Honourable Chief Minister of West Bengal , Mamata Banerjee symbolizes an inspirational transformer. She was awarded by the United Nations for Public Service for Kanyashree Scheme in 2017. Aiming to empower girls, the West Bengal Government under the efficient leadership of our dynamic respected Chief Minister, has set up the very first Kanyashree College in the state ,in Kolkata at Behala.
