Rahmatullah's father is a priest in a local mosque. He never imagined that his son would get a chance to go out of old city let alone Hyderabad. Yet defying all odds, Rahmatullah with his hard work secured 7th rank in the KAT exam and is all set to fly to Hong Kong !
Pallavi & Rahmatullah are being joined by 9 other brilliant students who will be going on a trip of a lifetime to Hong Kong. They have been selected by KAT Academy after topping the aptitude test conducted for students of budget schools in Hyderabad.
About KAT Academy
KAT Academy is a registered non-profit based out of Hyderabad. It is brainchild of Dr. Mohd Anwar, Chairman of MA Ideal Schools. I have known him personally as I taught in his school as a Teach For India fellow from 2013-15.
