Murshidabad: Alliance School Murshidabad, situated at Uttar Ghoshpara near Jalangi town in Murshidabad district, celebrated its 4th annual day on 30 April. It was attended by the Charity Alliance president Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan as well as by a number of local dignitaries like the Murshidabad MLA Ms Souni Shingha Ray (Congress), Mousumi Begum, headmistress of the Raipara Vidyalaya, Samsuzzoha Biswas, headmaster of Jalangi High School, Asraful Islam, headmaster of Ghoshpara Sarvapally Vidyaniketan, Ms Bijoli Mondal, Pradhan of Ghoshpara Gram Panchayat, while the area school inspector deputed two representatives to attend the function on his behalf.

Dr Khan exhorted the children and their parents to take education seriously as it is the only avenue for progress in today’s life.

At the end, Charity Alliance president distributed certificates to 19 persons who completed the 4th batch of the tailoring course organised by the vocational centre run by the charity at Uttar Ghoshpara. At present 36 trainees in the 5th tailoring batch are receiving training in this 6-month long course which has helped many men and housewives in the area to stand on their own feet, open shops and start supplying ready-made garments to shops in the area. Even the school children and teachers were wearing uniforms and shirts stitched by persons who learnt tailoring in this vocational centre which earlier also taught zari and knitting work. The school, which has 360 children and 15 teachers upto class 6 at present, is administered by Golam Kibriya while the vocational centre is looked after by Hakim Mondal, both full-time local staff of the charity since it started work in the area in the wake of the hunger deaths in 2005.
