In a commendable move, Obaidur Rahman, an NRI from Saudi Arabia has offered to help the children of the minority communities to achieve their dreams of studying in premier educational institutes of the country.

Rahman, a Saudi Arabia-based businessman, has joined hands with Super 30, a free coaching centre that helps children from poor families to get into the prestigious IIT engineering institutes. He is helping the talented youth from the minority community prepare for the IIT and other technical education courses.

Rahman, who also happens to be the chairman of the Bihar Foundation in Saudi Arabia, has formed an organisation called Rahman 30, which will select 30 talented students from the minority community through screening tests. Its founder-director, Anand Kumar, will provide free training to these children.

The Institute aims at providing employable education to students through rigorous training. Rahman states that usually minorities are barred from such a privilege. They don’t get quality technical and job-oriented education because of financial problems.
He believes that the institute will help the students become well-off in life.

In 2014-15, the Human Resource Development Ministry had conducted a survey and found out that the minorities continue to be at the bottom among all social groups when it comes to higher education, with only 4.4% of enrollment. The dropout rate among Muslims is also very high at 17.6%.

Rahman believes that it is time for him to give something back to society in a meaningful way. “Education is the only way in which one can make a meaningful contribution to society, as it has the power to change generations, as I have seen at Super 30,” he said.
“When I see successful students like Arbaaz Alam, who got into IIT despite coming from an underprivileged section of the society, it gives me the inspiration to do more in the field of education for needy students. It is quite refreshing to see professors and students from other countries coming to see Super 30 and understand how it shapes students from underprivileged sections of society. We will also look for needy, passionate and talented students,” said Rahman.

Super 30 is a platform through which underprivileged children are empowered to do well in life by getting through India’s premier institute of education- the IITs. Till now, more than 400 students of Super 30– from the poorest sections of society have made it to IITs.
