Giving back to society not only makes a person generous but also gives him or her a great sense of purpose and happiness in doing something for the less unfortunate ones who need it more.
This Hyderabad-based professor by the name of Dr. Syed Jahangir is waving his hands to help the less unfortunate ones at any place and at any time. He always has the innate urge to do something for the children who come the from economically backward sections of the society.
The professor is providing free education, food (three meals a day) and shelter to more than 200 underprivileged children at his small education institution. Interestingly, he has been providing these rich resources to students since the last 10 years. Professor, Jahangir wants to instil the interest of knowledge in the hearts and minds of children.
“Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family. In this growing world, where education is deemed as business, I believe that weaker sections have more necessity of the right to quality education.”
Dr. Syed Jahangir who is the Head of the Department Arab Studies, EFL (English and Foreign Language) University also teaches different languages to children.
“I believe that weaker sections have a greater need for quality education. If we want our children to get the best education possible then they should get the best teacher rather than a great school. Here, I have started an English Model Islamic University where children can learn multiple languages like English, Sanskrit, Arabic, Urdu, and Parsi. They are taught in modern style here.”
“I spend the morning teaching foreign students at EFL University and the rest of the day I spend with children belonging to the backward class. I provide them free food, free education and also free accommodation. Children from different parts of the country come to us to get a quality education. Several of our former students are currently working in multinational companies as language translators,” he added. Some former and current students shared their experiences.
“I am from Bihar. I have been studying here for the last three years. Whatever we need is provided by Sir. I am happy to be studying here: said Mohammed Sadiq, a student.
Abdul Aleem said: “I studied here eight years ago and I am here now as a science teacher. Today the cost of education is so high that many young people give up their dream of being educated, while many others graduate with debts. But here, we provide quality education and create a passion for learning amongst the students.” (ANI)
