The Kiliyamannil family has a special place in the history of the spread of modern education in Malappuram district in Kerala. A. K. Tottenham, former District Collector and Chief Secretary Madras Presidency, in his book “Moppila Rebellion” bears testimony to the role played by the Kiliyamannil family in bringing the fruits of modern education to the rural heartland of Malappuram in the early decades of the 20th century.
Kiliyamannil Moidu Sahib, the then family patriarch was credited with the pioneering role in this regard. The exemplary vision and abiding commitment shown by persons like Moidu Sahib is responsible for the emergence of the modern and dynamic social fabric in the Malabar region in general and Malappuram in particular.
The new generation in the Kiliyamannil family is devoted to keep their rich heritage in the field of education intact by setting up a slew of institutions that would cater to the educational requirements of the present generation. The family has taken the initiative to set up Educare Charitable Trust with this objective in mind.
Fatima Moidu is the founder Trustee of the Educare Charitable Trust. One of the earliest Muslim women in Malabar to receive university education, Fatima Moidu always played a crucial role in the empowerment of women through the light of education. Her father the late Kooliyattayil Mohammed Sahib who had his higher education in the UK was an educationist with vision. It was under his initiative several high schools were established in Malappuram district in 1930’s namely Tirur Govt. Girls High School and Malappuram Govt. High School.
This is the lineage with which the present generation is attempting to herald a new paradigm by setting up high quality educational institutions that could withstand the test of times. This is a Trust devoted to the cause of quality education. Every member of the Trust must submit to this noble objective. Keeping with the highest traditions of the Islamic faith and the values of the social harmony engendered by the Kiliyamannil family the founders of the Trust declare that we shall not discriminate anyone on the basis of caste, creed and wealth in our institutions of learning.
