By covering two major topics; how to choose career and the accessibility of opportunities, Mr. Nishad, Central Zone Project Manager said, “From last two months, Rehab has been organizing career guidance programme for Class Xth and XIIth students at different corners of India. This is the crucial time for the students to opt a right stream and course… Most of the times we observe that children enforce to full fill their parents dream and suppress own interest. Overcoming from this problem, we not only invite students but parents also, so that we can discuss and realize them that this is the time of their children to achieve their goal, otherwise, they will enforce to learn to do same with their off springs.” To add to it, Mr. Nishad said, “every parent has to understand that every kid is unique and has his/her own individuality, so they should stop imposing their likeness and end up comparing their children with others.”

On the occasion, Mr. Nazmul Haque, trainer District Information Centre said, “+91-3482-255577 is the helpline number for the students. For any education related assistance, you can contact at this number.”
