‘Nothing but education defines the future of a person and the future of a nation.’
I am the Principal of As Suffa Grammar School in Hyderabad. I am determined to prove that education is the key to build oneself as well as the nation. As my children come from extremely poor backgrounds, I am on a mission to transform and discipline my students and open many paths to success for them.
Most of my students speak Urdu at home and are afraid of conversing in English. This further hinders their mastery of the language, and can be an obstacle to their future. Pratham’s Library-in-a-Classroom will bring a portable, fun library to As Suffa, which does not have the funds or infrastructure to build a library.
Instead of age, these books are categorized according to reading levels. This can help Minhaj select the right books and help his students gauge their own level of fluency in a non-judgmental manner. Moreover, Pratham books are richly-illustrated with contextual stories. This is sure to attract students to pick up the books and attempt to read them. Slowly, this will help improve their reading levels and comprehension skills, and thus their performance in other subjects as well.
I need your support. Contribute to this campaign to build future leaders of the country!
