The Foundation of ADCOED

Ansar-Ud-Deen Colleges of Education, (ADCOED) Isolo, is an off-shoot of a defunct training centre, known as the institute of Arabic and Islamic Studies (IAIS) which was established over three (3) decades ago, precisely in 1982, to train qualified and professional teachers in the subjects of Arabic and Islamic Studies. Till the end of 20th Century, the old institute satisfactorily accomplished its assignment within available financial, material and human resources.

Praise be the Almighty Allah.
