The best way to predict the future is to create it - Peter Drucker

The curriculum at Baldwin Women’s Methodist College ensures that the young women entrusted to its care leave its portals well equipped academically, morally and socially to hold their own
and do confidently what it takes to make the world a better, safer place to live in. Here, through careful tending and nurturing by a team of dedicated mentors, students are led to discover themselves, recognize their worth, the power house of potential they possess and to appropriate these in ways that will enrich not just their own lives but that of the community and the nation as a whole.

We are proud to be part of a 135 year old legacy that started in 1880 with one purpose- Education. The importance of Education to dispel darkness in all its debilitating forms – ignorance, superstition, casteism, factionalism, terrorism and war – can never be over emphasized. Here is a classic example:

The Boers, after the Anglo-Boer War, had nothing. They were indeed the poorest of the poor. But within thirty to forty years after the war, the Afrikaners were producing some of the finest doctors, lawyers, scientists, and engineers in the world. How was it possible?

The Afrikaners made education their priority. With the sweat of their brow, tears, and self discipline, they created jobs and wealth, and became masters of their own destiny.

I thank the editorial team for their tireless effort, creativity and coordination in compiling this beautiful issue of ‘Tapestry’ and all those whose contributions through the year, in the cultural, literary and social arenas, have enriched the quality of life at Baldwins, as this magazine will amply testify.


God Bless You All!
