Whenever we talk about the slum, a picture comes to our mind, a highly populated urban residential area consisting of densely packed housing units of weak build quality and often associated with poverty.
Mohammad Asif Hussain Sohail , Chairman Trustee, Sakinda Foundation Trust finds a great idea in this slum. According to him, there is a potential for skills, talent, and dedication to study. The idea behind the initiative is that children from slums and poor families also have talent and possess the dedication to study and learn skills. They can excel in their felids if given proper guidance and mentorship along with access to resources is provided to them.
Mohammad Asif Hussain Sohail told that with the support of Hearts & Hands of Amazon we have launched the “Slums To Oxford ” Campaign to educate slum Children,Women & Senior Citizen, beggars , labourers , fruit and vegetable cart vendors , auto drivers . Free Basic & Advance Literacy Classes provided along with free study material will be conducted every day for 8 To 80 years of age .These classes will be held both morning and evening for two hours, 365 days at Virat Nagar slums , Shaikpet.

Our classes will not only be restricted to education, but they will also provide skill development training,extracurricular activities and awareness program on Child Prostitution & Anti Drug Campaign,” said, Asif Hussain Sohail.
