Girls Islamic Organisation – Overview
Girls Islamic Organisation India (GIO) is the daughter organization of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind. It’s a student organization that works for the upliftment and growth of female students and young women and to release their true potential in molding society’s future. After functioning under the Women’s Wing of JIH for a while, GIO was established as a full-fledged state-level organization. It now actively works in 18 Zones across the country.
Women are the foundation of a family and thus of a society and hence their role is crucial. We aspire to provide space for women to come together, express, and nourish themselves while preparing them for the betterment of society.
Even after forty years past the Mandal Commission recommendations, there remains gross inequality among the opportunities provided for Other Backward Communities(OBC). The organization focus on enabling educational upliftment, progress in socio-political conditions, entrepreneurial advancement and equal space for the women of marginalized communities. The organisation will make conscious efforts to develop a free and open space where anyone can raise their voice and question the injustice faced by them.
National Federation of GIO
The organization has a presence in almost every state in India, working under the respective state councils. The National Federation of GIO is a consolidation of all GIO zones in India. It will be headed by a National President and General Secretary and will comprise a Federal Committee having representatives from all GIO states for a term of two years.
The Federation will coordinate interaction and sharing of ideas between the states, and address and give voice to the prominent issues of National concern. We look forward to making GIO a space for women to come together, express and nourish themselves while preparing them to fight the challenges of society.
