The results of exams given to students of Alkhidmat Karachi’s Computer and Language Courses in 2021 were released by the Central Jail on Friday.
Due to pre-scheduled court visits, two candidates were unable to take the exams, leaving 86 candidates to be declared successful.
Those who were unable to take the tests because they were unavailable will be allowed to do so later, potentially saving an academic year. As part of the project, the students studied a number of subjects, including English, computer graphics, and CIT Diploma courses.
During a simple ceremony in the prison, Muhammad Hasan Suhto, Senior Superintendent of Central Jail, Karachi, who was the chief guest on the occasion, gave diplomas to the accomplished students. Manzar Alam, senior manager of Alkhidmat Karachi, was also present during the occasion.
Mr. Suhto praised the successful inmates and noted that the jail administration was eager to cooperate with inmates who wanted to maximise their time in prison by enrolling in English and computer lessons.
He congratulated Alkhidmat for the good concept, saying it would enable the inmates to earn a respectable livelihood and contribute to society once they were released.
The Alkhidmat institute in Karachi’s Central Jail is affiliated with the Sindh Board of Technical Education, which issues certificates. If the convicts successfully complete the courses, their sentences will be reduced by six months.
