India where everyone has equal opportunities to unleash their full potential and contribute to nation’s development.
Misaal’s mission is to inspire and support young Muslims to dream, to break through the glass ceiling, and to build a life of socio-economic comfort.
As per the All India Survey on Higher Education 2018-19, Muslims comprise 5.23% of the total number of students enrolled in colleges. This is abysmally low as compared to their 14.2 % share in population (Census 2011). According to the Sachar Committee Report, only 1 out of 25 students in undergraduate courses and 1 in 50 students in postgraduate courses in premier institutes is a Muslim. It is an alarming situation for the community as well as for the nation when a sizable chunk of the young population is not educated.
In order to make a positive difference, we dream of an ecosystem standing on three pillars:
- Inspiration, through stories of high achieving Indian Muslims
- Support, through mentorship programs and scholarships
- Up-Skilling, through workshops
