It gives me immense pleasure to welcome you to the website of RDG College for Women, Akola.
Smt. Radhadevi Goenka College for Women has been nurtured by the Founder President, Late Smt. Radhadeviji Goenka’s vision. She was Freedom Fighter and great Social Worker who was obsessed by the idea of women’s empowerment. She realised that it was impossible without education. She herself showed indomitable courage in swimming against the current by fighting against the orthodox traditions and beliefs. She remains our source of inspiration and strength.
Apart from providing education through various courses, we also aim to empower our students intellectually, spiritually, mentally and physically through various extra and co-curricular activities and schemes like ‘Joy of Giving’, ‘Earn While You Learn’, ‘Save the Girl-Child’, ‘Save Environment’, and ‘Save Water’ etc. Our college magazine ‘Surabhi’ and the Wall Magazine provide students a platform to hone their writing skills. Through N.S.S., students reach the rural area and become acquainted with rural problems which they try to resolve thereby reducing the gap between the rural and the urban, the educated and the illiterate, as well as the rich and the poor. N.C.C. training makes our students confident, smart and upright. Every year, our students participate in the Republic Day Parade at Rajpath, New Delhi. Our girls win accolades in sports also. Our cultural performances, too, have achieved nationwide acclaim in the cultural events. Our artists are also highly appreciated in the Youth Festival organized by University.
An educated man can shape only his own future, but an educated woman can shape the future of a whole family and thus change the destiny of the nation.
I intently believe that with us, you would have an all-round development of your personality and would turn out to be the ideal citizens.
I am proud of being the Principal of such a prestigious and reputed institution.
With best wishes and blessings,
Dr. Devendra N. Vyas
