Srinagar, January 7th (KNO): Ghulam Hassan, from Handwara in northern Kashmir, has been at the forefront of helping students in need by facilitating their education.
Hassan, along with other like-minded people, founded the Educational Club Kashmir with the aim of providing free books to disadvantaged students who are unable to continue their educational careers.
According to the Kashmir News Observer (KNO), Hassan started this endeavor in the small town of Handwara in northern Kashmir and brought many like-minded people into an effort to alleviate the plight of disadvantaged students.
“I took this initiative together with other souls and over time many well-wishers came forward and supported us in providing books,” said Hassan.
“First we set up a mini library for poor students who came to us for books. We don’t buy it from the markets, but our well-wishers support us and we only act as mediators, ”he said.
Hassan went on to say that the students of this border district face multiple hardships as they are far from the competitive world and the pandemic lockdown has exacerbated their problems.
He noted that around a hundred disadvantaged students were given free books over the past year, including two from the Baramulla district.
Hassan said that they collect the books from the students and later distribute them to the students in need.
This Education Club Kashmir has also conducted the GAT exam for students, which has taken 1278 students, including 130 students who have qualified for the exam, and the top three position holders are awarded while the 1st position holder is given a laptop.
The purpose of the exam was to help students understand the areas of education they need to come into contact with in order to cope with the contemporary competitive scenario. The exam was not curriculum-oriented, but a mixture of general knowledge from different areas.
The founding members also said they also have a plan to offer coaching to the students for competitive exams.
“We decided to do this in cooperation with various coaching centers. At least 5-6 students are accepted into these coaching centers, ”he said
We will pay for these coaching centers ourselves and there are several well-wishers joining this cause.
“We should also organize the programs at the district level, but due to the successive waves of Covid-19 we have not been able to do this, but we are confident that we will start organizing these programs as soon as the situation improves,” said Hassan– (KNO)
