It gives me immense pleasure and satisfaction to issue this message on the occasion of the launching of the website of the Nest Academy. On this happy occasion I would like to recall with gratitude all the assistance and blessing I got from my motherland to build myself and my business. As I feel duty bound to give back to my country, I chose to contribute towards the well being and upliftment of our youth. Therefore I ventured to start a vocational training institute as a Not for Profit Guaranteed Company to empower the youth in hospitality management sector. I found this sector offers career opportunities locally and internationally in the shortest turnaround time. Although I have many successful business ventures through my initiatives, this is the only one project which gives me the highest satisfaction. I am very proud of the achievement we had during the last two years and hope to make the academy a degree awarding institute in the near future. I am very much indebted to my fellow directors Mr.Y.I.M. Hameez and Mr.M.R.M. Zarook who are the backbone of this Academy. I also wish to express my sincere gratitudes to our Principal and the staff for their valuable contribution towards achieving our goal. My thanks also go to all who supported to make this venture a reality.
