The M. Noorul Quader Foundation, established by Desh Group, is a testament to our founder's appreciation for the arts. Mr M. Noorul Quader was not only a supporter but also a friend to renowned Bangladeshi artists and intellectuals, such as poet Shamsur Rahman, Professor Dr. Anisuzzaman, and artists such as Quamrul Hassan, S. M. Sultan, and many more.

In the late 70s and early 80s, he commissioned budding artists, promoting their careers to a broader audience. Honouring Mr Quader's commitment to Bengali art and culture, the foundation was established in the year 2000. Each year, the foundation sponsors two creative competitions:

  • An art contest catering to Bangladeshi students aged 3–15
  • A book competition inviting Bangladeshi authors of children's literature to participate

Art Competition

Bangladeshi students between the ages of 3-15 participate in this competition. Eminent artists and intellectuals judge the competition. Winners are then ceremonially awarded prizes.

The foundation goes the extra mile by awarding "Encouragement Prizes" to inspire students to continue developing their skills.

Book Competition

The Foundation annually invites book submissions from Bangladeshi children’s writers and publishers. These submissions are evaluated by a panel of prominent Bangladeshi children's book authors, with prizes awarded in categories like Poetry, Novel, and the Liberation War.

The Muslim Girls High School was established in 1911 as the first educational institution that was especially set up for Muslim girls in Mymensingh at that time.

The High School traces its origins back to 1911 when it was established by the late Alimuddin Khan, grandfather of Mr Quader.

In 2001, recognising the growing demand for student accommodation, Desh Group of Companies began financing the construction of on-campus housing for students.

Presently, the M. Noorul Quader Satri Nibas, the student hostel, serves as the residence for 125 students throughout the academic year.

Mrs. Rokeya Quader, the current chair of Desh Group of Companies, proudly serves as a member of the school's governing body.
