They were talking about the trainers who trained them in the classes. They were talking about Farhana Hanip, president of PeopleNTech who has been working relentlessly to take the organization onward with all efforts.
Engineer Abubokor Hanip also shared his own story to all. He told how he established himself in this IT sector after passing a struggling time when he came to study in this country.
The story of Abubokor Hanip is an inspiration for everyone, speakers said.
Abubokor Hanip told that he left a lucrative job with reputed company in handsome salary to take efforts so that people could change their lives in the way he has changed his own. And keeping that motto in mind, he founded PeopleNTech.
Hanip said that some 18 years ago in 2004 he took a vow to bring the people of the Bangladeshi community out of the life of struggle in this country and give them a beautiful life. And thus, PeopleNTech started. Initially, there was only one student. But after that student got a job six-digit job in the mainstream, more students started to join. Since then, there was no looking back. Gradually it continued to grow.
And during this period, PeopleNTech has trained nearly 8,000 Bangladeshis in IT who have got mainstream job in the United States. They are now living a comfortable life. And they are raising their future generation well. Moreover, they also play a role in the progress of Bangladesh by sending high figure remittances.
In his speech, Abubokor Hanip highlighted the Washington University of Science and Technology, which is currently being run by him, and said that it is a fulfillment of his long-cherished dream. He said there is no alternative to skill based institutional education and training to take the Bangladeshi community forward in the mainstream in the United States. Washington University of Science and Technology is run through a skills-based curriculum.
The teachers here are simultaneously scholars and experienced from the industry. They bring their experience and skills from the industry to the classroom. And due to their teaching through it, students can move from university to work by having skillful knowledge.
The students of WUST have also started joining in the mainstream in big companies. Engineer Abubokor Hanip also expressed the hope that at one time the alums of WUST will occupy the high positions of Fortune Hundred Companies in this country. And he said, that's not only a dream but also a goal.
Farhana Hanip, President of PeopleNTech, said, "Today we want to celebrate the success of our alams. The alums are all in our hearts. Some have now risen to a higher level, we are proud of their achievements."
She called on peopleNTech's alumni to stand by them to make The Washington University of Science and Technology a success. Farhana Hanip expressed her gratitude for the continued support from the community as well.
Congratulating the successful alums of PeopleNTech, The Chief Guest Dr. Monirul Islam said, "Your successes impress us and make Bangladesh proud."
Noting that Abubokor Hanip has set an example, Dr. Monirul said he (Mr. Hanip) likes to 'give' to people. He has trained people, taught them and at the same time has taken all kinds of initiatives to 'give' them work. It is this mentality of giving to others that has taken him to such a height that everyone feels proud of him.
Few of the Bangladeshi diaspora have been able to keep their footprints in the United States, Abubokor Hanip is one of them, said Dr. Monirul Islam.
Special Guest Syed Ashiqur Rahman praised the success of PeopleNTech and said that the efforts of Abubokor Hanip and Farhana Hanip to take The Washington University of Science and Technology forward are worth to mention.
Later, crests and flower bouquets were presented to the successful alums as a recognition. All the officials of PeopleNTech were also given crests and bouquets of flowers as greeting souvenir. Abubokor Hanip and Farhana Hanip were also given special honors while engineer Abubokor Hanip handed over the crest to the special guest and the chief guest.
Then group photos were taken. And finally, the 2022 Alumni Summit of PeopleNTech ended with a delicious dinner.
