The vision of Fatima College is to empower women by developing human capabilities through quality educationmaking them responsible citizens who can work for the advancement of the society

Keeping this in mind, our institution not only focus on the holistic development of the students but also on the transformation of the neighbourhood. ROSA-Reach Out to the Society through Action is the vibrant extension wing of Fatima College which works for the upliftment of the 16 villages in the neighbourhood. This community service is an off-campus programme. The 3-credit student activity focusses on women, children and youth covering areas such as health, literacy, women empowerment & environmental awareness. These activities not only help in transforming the villages but also provide an opportunity for experiential learning taking the lab to the land. Recognising the dedicated service rendered, the MHRD has selected Fatima College as a Participating Institution under UBA 2.0 from April 2017 onwards. In consultation with the District Collector of Madurai, 5 villages namely Kondaiyampatti, Nedungulam, Vadugapatti, ambalathadi and Thirumalnatham were chosen for the UBA programme. Schedules are drawn up listing specific activities for the target groups. The students and staff are wholeheartedly involved in the various community programmes.

A special feature of these extension activities is the follow up. Students study the impact of the activities and suggest measures for follow up. Ties with the villagers are maintained and they are invited to certain programmes organised by the college in the campus. Young girls from the villages are motivated to pursue their education in Fatima College. Through ROSA students are sensitized to reach out to society. The leadership skills are also honed. It is a win-win situation for Fatima College and the neighbourhood.
