ESTABLISHMENT, AIMS AND OBJECTIVES :

With a view to making women or girls-students self-reliant and imparting them useful productive higher education, Vidyamandir Society was set up in 1948.

This Institute faced a lot of troubles with courage. The sincere and dedicated founder members and the teaching staff laboured hard to achieve the goals step by step and today it has secured the highest position in the field of Women Education in the South Gujarat Region.

The chief motto of this Institute is to arouse the need and awareness for the higher education among women and train them as well disciplined and self-dependent in various fields of life. An exclusive college for women was started with a few students in a private building in the beginning but today this women college having its grand building on the bank of the river Tapi in Athwa lines area of Surat city.

[Mr Wadia] A generous doner Mr. Faramrose Wadia donated a big building to this women college in memory of his loving son Let Mr. Zal , so this college named as Z.F.Wadia Women's College which was affiliated with S.N.D.T. University, Mumbai.
