A matter of pride...first convocation @ hemchandra

You are aware that ejunction, in its endeavour to reach out to the most deprived and deserving learners from financially-challenged communities, started its first affiliated centre at the Hemchandra Library, Kidderpore. And it was a proud moment indeed for us when the first batch of trainees graduated with flying colours.

The Convocation ceremony for this first batch of pass outs was held on Wednesday, the 3rd of August, at the Hemchandra Library, Kidderpore. The occasion was graced by our MD, along with Shri Asim Kr Chatterjee, President, Hemchandra Library, Shri Sasti Das, Councillor, Ward No 76 KMC and Janab Firhad Hakim, Member of the Legislative Assembly, along with junctionites and non-junctionites who were voluntary trainers for the program.

This program was inaugurated in March 2011 and a total of 17 trainees had enrolled for it. 14 trainees have successfully completed the 4 months training program on computer basics and soft skills. 16 volunteer trainers were associated with this program, which included 6 junctionites and 10 non-junctionites from nearby localities.

The following are some interesting facts about this first batch that you should know.

• Trainees from the first batch of ejunction have come forward and volunteered as trainers for the practical classes of the current batch

• During the course of the programme, trainees have undertaken projects on three Bengali Poets including Michael Madhusudan, Kobi Hemchandra and Rangalal Bandopadhyay.
• About 15 books on advanced computer learning for trainees who are preparing for competitive examinations were donated to the library. These books were donated by several enthusiastic junctionites.

This only goes to show the attachment and the level of commitment that junctionites have for this lovingly nurtured endeavour of ours. The next batch of 20 trainees is now ready to take wing. We would like to wish them the success of their predecessors.
