Founded by Dr. Maqsood Ahmed, the Nizamia Education Group (NEG) is striving hard to make a difference in the lives of underprivileged children from socio-economically marginalised sections of society.
The organisation’s efforts have helped more than 10,000 students through its free counselling sessions and education consultancy services.
Based out of Jammu and Kashmir, the Nizamia Education Group has spread its operations to the states of Northeast India and Bihar.
The group plans to provide education to 1,00,000 students by the year 2025. Students from other South Asian countries and Africa have also taken advantage of the NEG platform to pursue their career dreams.
With a human development approach, Dr. Maqsood is focused on his goal of fostering autonomous citizens who will come out of their underprivileged backgrounds and embrace alternative lifestyles.
Uplifting underprivileged sections of society with proper guidance
The Nizamia Education Group was founded in 2012 to promote literacy and higher learning in the country. Since then, it has undertaken several initiatives to improve the lives of deserving students through its education consultancy services.
The idea is to build a strong foundation in language and social skills in a safe, secure, and happy learning environment. From providing coaching and education consultancy services to conducting the Nizamia Scholarship Test (NST), a merit-based scholarship exam, every year, the Nizamia Education Group is aiming to impart scholarship to meritorious candidates without any discrimination.
The organisation was founded in response to the growing need for proper counselling services for Indian students from underprivileged backgrounds.
Since its independence, India has been careful in developing its higher education sector to promote the project of nation-building. It has established universities, colleges, and other institutions to eliminate inequality in higher education.
However, lack of access to quality higher education and livelihoods is still a burning issue in India, which spurred Dr. Maqsood to lay the foundation for his unconditional consultancy services so that no student would have to suffer discrimination.
Supporting the dreams of every deserving candidate
Dr. Maqsood Ahmed, an education consultant and social reformer, says, “There are many students who have a lot of calibre, but are not able to achieve big and imprint their mark in the professional world because of lack of education support that they deserve.”
“I believe that proper guidance and counselling should be provided to every student who dreams big and is willing to go the extra mile to achieve the same. My mission behind launching the Nizamia Education Group is to mentor students on how to enrol in India’s best universities so they do not fall behind,” he adds.
“As a part of our student welfare activities, I am working towards advising and assisting underprivileged kids to reach the best potential educational accomplishments and embark on their dream journey.”
The Nizamia Education Group has gained momentum because of its dedicated services and relentless approach.
Maqsood Ahmed, who is also a managing director of Nizamia Consultancy Pvt Ltd, president of Nizamia Education Trust, and co-chairperson of the International Chamber of Media and Entertainment Industry’s Education Committee, has been successful in receiving recognition for his industrious efforts.
The leader is looking forward to expanding his philanthropic services in regions such as the Northeastern states and Bihar. With his diligent approach, he is focussing on providing students with the best education facilities and counselling them on how to enrol in India’s top-tier professional universities, so that they can achieve their goals and ambitions.
