This organization's name sounds more like a decree rather than a purpose. Perhaps
that is to indicate the seriousness of their whole objective. And when the organization
has helped about a lakh young people decide what actually benefits them, all would
be for the decree hands down.
IQRA (an Arabic word for "Read"), a voluntary organization for education and career guidance, was started on June 10, 1994, primarily to cater to students and guide them towards a career that suits them, irrespective of caste and creed. They have counseled about 1,00,000 students as of now.
This organization has also helped a number of students in self-employment, and is celebrating its 7th annual day today. And as a part of the occasion, it is arranging state-wide spot elocution and essay-writing competitions with the topic "Importance of career planning for the youth."
Any student from school level to post-graduation level can participate in these competitions. The organizers have decided to give four prizes - one for the school level, one for the junior college level, one for the degree level and one for the PG level.
4 prizes each (a total of 8 prizes) will be given to the winners in both the competitions.
The interested can contact the Madina Educational Center and register their names, and can also send communication to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Chief Editor of Asian Age and Deccan Chronicle, M J Akbar, will give away prizes to the winners, and H J Dora, the DGP, will preside.
