On 26th March 2022, Saturday Mukti TSS (Talented Student Sponsorship) team has organized a sponsor-student virtual meet between Mr. Amir Hamja and his sponsored students Sujit Mondal and Krishandu Mondal. This has been their first meeting through a virtual platform.
Mukti TSS program has been meant for those students who have incredible drive and a passion for learning but whose families could not afford to support their dreams. Sponsored student meetings not only give students confidence that they have someone to think about them but also create a lifelong bond between the sponsor and the student.
Mukti is thankful to Mr. Hamja for offering the students an incredible gift of sponsorship that is not only changing the lives of the sponsored students but also their families and that of the greater community.
Mr. Hamja has been associated with Mukti as a sponsor since 2019. Before that, he has been a scholarship holder in Mukti from 2015-19. He completed BE from Jadavpur University with Instrumentation and Electronics Engineering. Now he has been posted in Pune as a COC software engineer in Varroc Engineering Limited. While being a student, he decides that if he gets established in life, he will help some more helpless students to fulfill their dreams. Mr. Hamja has kept his word. Mukti respects his resolve. He is sponsoring two general category students.

Sujit is currently pursuing Masters in English from Dhurba Chand Halder College. He wants to do a Govt. job by cracking the WBCS examination and for this, he has started preparing himself.
