Baker College for Women, Kottayam was established in 2014 as part of the Bicentenary celebrations commemorating the arrival of the CMS missionaries in Kerala. The college is a tribute to three generations of women educators of the Baker family. Amelia Dorothea Baker, wife of Rev. Henry Baker (Sr.), lit the lamp of Women’s education in India when she educated six girls at her residence in 1820. The Baker Institutions of the Diocese are visible testimonies of the concern and efforts of the Diocese towards the empowerment of women through education.
Baker College for Women endeavors to live up to it’s motto “The Truth Will Make You Free”, believing firmly that the emancipation of women from discriminations and social prejudices can be attained only through the medium of education. The college is committed to encouraging, equipping and empowering women through imparting higher education.
