Campaign on Importance of Education
The Association of Muslim Professionals (AMP) organized a highly effective National Campaign on 15th November 2014 to create awareness amongst students about the importance of education.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” – with this belief and as a unique and humble tribute to the achievements of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad in the field of education, the Association of Muslim Professionals (AMP) organized Skills Development Lectures (SDL) in various cities across India simultaneously on the 15th of November 2014.
Nearly 150 AMP volunteers helped in conducting these lectures across the country. Lectures were conducted by AMP members in 75 schools and educational institutions and were attended by more than 10,000 students in different towns and cities – to date an unprecedented event.
National Education Day on 11th November is an annual observance in India to commemorate the birth anniversary of ‘Bharat Ratna’ Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, the first education minister of independent India. Followed by 14th November being celebrated as Children’s day, AMP decided to give an invaluable gift to children – the gift of knowledge and education. The theme of the campaign was titled ‘Kamyabi ka Wahid Rasta – Ta’leem’ translated as: ‘The Only Path to Success – Education”.
The SDL was intended to make the students aware of the importance of education with emphasis on pursuing quality education. Volunteers had given detailed information on securing admission to IITs, AIIMS and IIMs with audio-visual aids.
The event was well-appreciated by the school managements, teachers and parents where these SDLs were conducted.
