Islamic Cultural and Educational Society (MICES) is a
charitable society registered at Calicut under the
Societies Registration Act of 1860. Currently the
scope of its activities cover the Malabar region only.
Malabar, the northern region of Kerala state is located
in the South-Western coastal side of India. It has a
unique position in world history, a position that is
ignored by many! The seeds of European Colonialism in
the Eastern Hemisphere were first laid in Malabar by
Vasco de Gama, when he set his feet in Calicut, on 20th
That was the beginning of
Westernization of India and English Education in Indian
continent. It is ironical that the Portuguese paved the
way for the spread of English Language in India!
Well, we at MICES are interested in this bit of history
for two reasons! All educational, cultural, social and
charitable projects of MICES are based in a 12-acres
plot in Areekode, which once belonged to King Samoothiri.
Secondly, the first project of MICES was an English
medium school, the MICES PUBLIC SCHOOL the first of its
kind in Areekode!
With the Blessings of Almighty Allah, MICES has now
grown and is growing! AlHamdulillah!
Due to some practical reasons
MICES had to abandon the MICES PUBLIC SCHOOL from the
list of its projects and turned its attention to
other more rewarding charity projects.
Now MICES has the following
projects actively running:
