Hostel & Community Development Centre

Rural students of the community who came to Mangalore for higher studies were facing accommodation problem in those days. Though there were some such facilities, they were out of reach for poor students. In the year 1990, Jamiyyatul Falah, with an intention to provide accommodation facilities for Muslim students, purchased 32 cents land and a small house near the mosque in Kankanady, Mangalore and set up a small hostel there. Janab Y. Mohammed Kunhi inaugurated the hostel on September 16, 1990. Nearly one year later, on September 22, 1991, Janab Mumtaz Ahmed Khan, educationist from Bangalore, laid the foundation for the new building of the hostel. The well-equipped hostel building was inaugurated by the then chief minister, M. Veerappa Moily on November 30, 1993.

With the rising awareness on education, the number of Muslim students coming to city for higher education went up gradually. Parents usually want their children to be under the supervision of learned, trustworthy persons, get quality food and grow up in Islamic environment. The Jamiyyatul hostel meets all these requirements. Since the demand for accommodation in the hostel increased, a two-storey new block has been constructed above the community hall. The hostel now has 160 students.

JF Community Development Centre is being used for conducting various programmes in respect of awareness and overall development of the students. The Centre is also used by the community members for conducting social, religious and Educational Programmes.
