Here is a semi-literate man whose mission is to spread education among poor children. Coming from a humble ground, he struggled hard, faced humiliation but not did give up his mission.Now, a known name in his region, what he has achieved will inspire you.Read his story.
Gazi, a native of Thakurchak near Joynagar in Sunderban area, lives in Kolkata. He had to drop out of school when he was seven-year-old, as his family had no money. Since then, he nurtured a dream.
To fulfil his dream, he became rickshaw puller in Kolkata. Later, he became a taxi driver. The income he earned from driving taxi helped him to pursue his dream.
He didn't restrict himself to spreading education. He also started donating clothes and food to poor kids.
He constructed a two-room house in his village and conducted school in small rooms. The school which started with 22 students now has a strength of 400.
Despite earning Rs 500 or Rs 1000 a day, Gazi never lost hope and continued making efforts to fulfil his dream. In addition to this, he managed to provide salaries to more than 15 teachers and other non-teaching staff of his two schools.
He had asked the government for help but he did not get any support.
“Earnings by this taxi is used for the students of Sunderban Orphanage School. I urge traffic police not to register any case against this taxi. Regards, taxi driver Gazi Jalaluddin.”
