The Gaya Muslim Orphanage is registered under the Society's Registration Act 1860, and is a Muslim minority managed institution. Presently, the GMO is housed in a vast campus spread over 30 kotthas of land. Now the GMO has three large beautiful single storey concrete buildings having 55 big and well ventilated rooms, a Middle School, a High School, a Technical Training workshop, an imposing Mosque, two lush green parks, and a vast playground.
The GMO presents a rare combination of Islamic education and mainstream education that serves
the daily life (based on Bihar Government syllabus). An upper primary school was run in the premises
of the GMO that was recognized by the State Government in 1937, and with effect from 13th April 1963
it was upgraded to Middle standard. A High school was started in 1981 under the name of 'GMO Urdu High
School'. This school is unparalleled at least in the district of Gaya. Ever since its establishment,
the school has to its credit 96 to 100 percent results at the Bihar Board examination results.
The 'GMO Urdu High School' has still not been recognized by the State Government nor its teachers and
other staff receiving any state grants. Starting 2008 onwards, the Bihar School Examination Board (BSSEB)
has given the permission to fill up the forms of Matriculation examination from the school of the
institution itself. Earlier, the students used to appear from other schools for their Matriculation exams.
Besides, Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), Aligarh, has granted the permission to GMO to establish Centre for Distance Education (CDE) Study Centre. Now, the education up to Intermediate will be imparted to orphan and non-orphan students (Boys and Girls).
English and Hindi education begins from Standard II itself. Secondary level curriculum includes study of the Holy Qur'an, Arabic and Islamic literature. Arabic literature is compulsory subject in BSSEB examination. Computer education to be introduced soon.
The GMO has 125 orphan boys who reside in the 'Allama Shibli Hostel'. The boys who are studying
here hail from different places in the state as well as states adjoining Bihar. Advertisements are
placed in Newspapers from time to time to make the people aware of its vacancy for the orphans. An
orphan boy coming with recommendations from two respectable persons from the area is welcome.
The GMO conducts an inquiry about the boy's background and then admits him. All needs of the boys
including food, clothes, medicines, beds, books and training etc. are borne by the GMO, which receives
public donations in cash and kind.
Besides 125 orphan boys, 50 non-orphan students also reside in the 'Allama Shibli Hostel'. Here the non-orphan students bear the expenses of their boarding and fooding.
