Expatriate Indians based in Saudi Arabia have launched a new forum to promote education and literacy among the poor and underprivileged in India, particularly in Bihar and Jharkhand. The Association for Humanitarian Services and Solidarity (AHSAS) will focus on assisting poor students and checking dropouts by helping them continue with their studies.
According to a report, “AHSAS is committed to serve the underprivileged people in India in general and people living in the eastern states of Bihar and Jharkhand in Particular,” AHSAS President Wakil Ahmed said at the launch ceremony. There are over 1.7 million Indians in Saudi Arabia and over 100,000 of them are from Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal. The forum has started off with three programmes.
