This is a video created by Becca Summers and Dusty Hulet that features one of our Uddami graduates, Samsoni Sarkar:
You knew how to change darkness into light,
you knew how to make my life bright;
you were my strength, when I was weak.
you were my words when I couldn’t speak;
you always made me feel right,
you always made me win those sweet fights
you knew what I am within.
you knew when I was hidding,
you were my eyes when I couldn’t see,
you lifted me up to that place, where I dreamt to be,
you knew what made me cry,
what made me happy.
but wherever you are my friend.
O my dearest UDDAMI School
I’ll never forget you.
I promise from the bottom of my heart.
I’ll never ever try to do.
I got information about Uddami from my father. Here is a place for the poor boys and girls to get a chance, where they can learn computer without investing a lot of money. Teachers are very helpful and careful. They always try to make us do better so we can make a better future. From there I can know that computers make our life interesting.
Now today I am working at Uddami Software Services but before I was a student at UCTC. But I think that without the teachers at Uddami I could not make my future. After training every student can make their future like me. Before coming here I could not find the answer to “What do I do?” or “What is my future?” But now I am satisfied about my future.

Uddami is a free computer training center. It is a non-profit organization, where we learn computer. What we learn in Uddami, that is very helpful in our career life.
It is really very-very helpful to us. It is specially for them, those who don’t get any opportunity anywhere. It gives that lucky opportunity.
In Uddami teachers are very good and they explain very well and they teach very clearly. Their behavior is very friendly like an elder sister. So, I like them and respect them.
This center …has good thinking for the poor who doesn’t get any opportunity. …they inspire us to build our career and give us open path to success.
So, again I respect and thank them to give us so great opportunity.

I want to say lots of things about Uddami, but I don’t have any words. Yet I am trying to tell something. Uddami has totally changed my life.
Actually I was fond of [the] computer from very small age. When I was grown up I was looking for the centre where [you] can take training. Every centre needs only the money, but Uddami is the only centre where without spending any money I have got the opportunity to take the computer training so carefully and in [a] very friendly environment.
Before taking training in Uddami, where I [went] for a job interview, everyone asked me do you have the knowledge of computer? And my answer was no. Then I got the answer from them, that sorry we could not appoint you, because you don’t have the knowledge of computer.
But here in Uddami I have got not only the computer training but also how to communicate with others and how to speak in English. Uddami has shown me the way to earn money, and taught me how to be independent. So I am really very much thankful to Uddami.
