Mukti Junior College opening

The opening ceremony and dedication was held earlier this month. The new storey includes two new classrooms, several science laboratories and a library. More than mere bricks and mortar, the second storey means more disadvantaged Indian girls can receive higher levels of education, and “educating girls is a surefire way to raise economic productivity, lower infant and maternal mortality, improve nutritional status and health, reduce poverty, and wipe out HIV/AIDS and other diseases” (Maritza Ascencios from UNICEF). So on behalf of every girls who will in the future sit and learn in the new classrooms, conduct experiments in the new science laboratories, and study in the new library, thank you to every Australian who partnered with us to build the second storey – they now have the opportunity to create a brighter future for themselves and their families.
