Garhwa is a town located near the border of Uttar Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. It’s a district head quarter. It is one of the most backward district of Jharkhand in the field of education, health care and economic status.
Education has always been an attentive part of human life. Garhwa has been a big challenge for girl’s education because not a single women’s college established here. At first the MLA and the father of the founder secretary of this college has a dream to establish a women’s college. But unfortunately he couldn’t do this. He couldn’t survive for a long time. After his death, his son Mr. Girinath Singh became MLA of Garhwa constituency. Now it was the time to make true the dream of his father late Gopinath Singh.
One evening in the year 1998 Mr. Girinath Singh held a meeting of some noted people of Garhwa to put the dream of his father about the women’s college. These people were Shri Vijay Keshri, Shri Ran Bahadur Singh, Prof. Dr. Mahindra Singh and Prof. Dr. Mithila Singh.
All these eminent people supported him to make true the dream as soon as possible because it was the most essential requirement of the people of Garhwa district. And, thus the dream came true, in the form of Gopinath Singh Mahila Mahavidyalaya Garhwa.
