The Muslim Educational Society (MES) is an organisation established to aid education of Muslims in India, especially in the state of Kerala.[2] The society runs more than 150 institutions including more than 50 schools, a number of postgraduate colleges, women's colleges, professional institutions like engineering colleges, medical college, nursing college and dental college.

The primary work of the society is to establish colleges, schools, technical and commercial institutes, kindergartens, and vocational training centres. It is also envisaged to set up establishments to promote moral and spiritual values among the public, work for the welfare of women and children and establish and maintain old age homes and rehabilitate the destitute.



Traditionally, Muslims living in Kerala were traders and agrarians living in villages and were not allowed to enter into the mainstream of the social fabric of Kerala. Educating a child was beyond the means of poor Muslim parents, and they felt that they had no right to acquire education because it was confined to the elite class. Because of this attitude, the community remained in ignorance and deprivation.

Poverty was their destiny; they had to remain content with whatever income they got from trade and agriculture. After independence, the situation started changing slowly. A need for starting an organization to fight for their cause gradually gathered ground and there emerged the organization called the Muslim Educational Society.


The movement was started by professionals, intellectuals, educationists and businessmen under the leadership of the visionary Dr PK Abdul Ghafoor in 1964 at Calicut. The society has been promoting a large number of education projects and programs from primary schools to professional colleges. Its activities spread to almost every district in Kerala and a large number of MES educational institutions were started.

In addition to the institutions in the states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu, MES has established institutions in the West Asian countries like Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar and Oman.

MES celebrated its Golden Jubilee in 2014.

The MES Group of Institutions signed a memorandum of understanding with Aries Estrrado, a Thiruvananthapuram-based company, for digitizing its institutions on 5 July 2017. Once the digitization drive is completed, educational institutions under MES will be fully operational through information and communication technologies.
