Asfandayar, 16 year old student at SLP, thinks that education is something that helps us in every aspect of life. It improves how we think and act. Thus, makes better human beings.
He was a salesman at a local store when he realized that he needed to learn to read and write. He stated that while working in the store, customers use to come asking for different items and he would find it really difficult to find them. He was having trouble coping up with this challenge. That is when he came to know of SLP. Then he convinced his boss who allowed him to go to school in the morning and work in the store in the evening. While talking about this, Asfand smiled and added, “After a while, all I did was learn.”
Learning became his passion. Now all he wants to do is to learn more and more and spread it. Because like other SLP students he also believes that knowledge is not something one should keep to himself, it should be spread.
