Michael & John Job Centre (MJC) is a group of non-profit institutions, working dedicatedly to transform the lives of underprivileged girls through education. Since its establishment in 2004, the MJC has transformed the lives of young women. A prominent regional centre of academic excellence and professional achievement, the MJC now has a High School, an Arts & Science College, a B.Ed & M.Ed College and a home for the economically challenged, under its wing.
The journey of MJC began with the vision of one man – Dr. P P Job, a revered leader of the Christian community. The unfortunate and untimely passing of his son Michael Job in 1999, led Dr. Job to reflect upon how he could add meaning to the life of others. He decided to devote his life to become a godfather for those in need. For him, opening an orphanage or a home for the destitute was not enough. His aim was to use education, which would be a long lasting investment towards empowering lives and helping young girls chart their own success stories. As a result, MJC became a place where an economically challenged student could join in kindergarten, and step out armed with a degree,and a job offer in hand. A graduate at MJC experiences, in addition to academics, a digitsed learning environment, mentorship from distinguished industry professionals, spoken english coaching, life after college training for better integration into the workplace and much more. The goal for MJC is to mould young girls into confident women, ready to take on their world.
Through the Love in Action Society, MJC sponsors education and boarding for the economically challenged girl child, but its doors are open to any student with an urge to learn. The institution attracts students from all backgrounds, including those who can study here by paying a regular fee. This creates a diverse, multicultural community for MJC girls to grow up in and become responsible members of society.
