Bengaluru: Ashiana Free Skill Development Institute was inaugurated here on March 22 under the auspices of the Al-Aman Educational and Welfare Trust. The Institute will provide training in computing skills, tailoring, fashion designing and will impart coaching in spoken English and personality development. The 3-storey building for the Institute has 1,100 sq. ft. space with three halls set apart for organizing classes.
The moving spirit behind the venture is Mr. Mohammed Farooque, who has so far set up Ashiana Old Age Home (beyond the Bangalore Airport, on Bellary Road); Ashiana Food Bank and Ashiana Scholarships. Farooque told Islamic Voice that the Institute will impart skills among youth in order to enable them earn a decent livelihood. The institute was inaugurated by Mufti Sageer Ahmed Sahib, Ameer-e Shariat, Karnataka.
Farooque said his Ashiana Old Age Home (on a 80 ft. by 80 ft. site) has now 50 inmates and is the only facility of its kind for aged Muslims around Bangalore city. He said the Home takes care of healthcare, hygiene and accommodation of the aged people, both who can pay for accommodation and those who have no one to care for them. He said the financial constrains have not allowed him to construct the building, for which a plan was ready.
