Educating a woman is educating a nation
There is a huge demand for a Muslim Boarding School for Girls in the United Kingdom. In response to this need, Muslim Charity has launched the Eaton Girls Boarding School (EGBS) Project. The EGBS will provide education to 11 to 16 year old girls and will also have post-16 courses in Islamic Studies and the Arabic language.
This is part of Muslim Charity’s UK Education Programme and the new initiative will provide a high standard education in a caring Islamic environment.
The focus of the EGBS will be to develop the innate creativity of students and their inquisitive nature in the pursuance of academic excellence while anchoring their hearts and souls in a moral framework based on Islamic teachings.
