A meeting with India’s Finance Minister, Mr Arun Jaitley
Dr Kiran and Asha Student Ambassador Usha were honoured to meet the Hon’ble Finance Minister of India, Mr Arun Jaitley this morning. Dr Kiran provided him with a glimpse of the work of Asha, particularly the Financial Inclusion and Higher Education programmes. Usha also explained her background and her achievements, and said that she represented thousands of Asha students with similar backgrounds as she stood before him. She presented him with a gift on behalf of all the students that was graciously accepted by him.
Dr Kiran and Usha invited him to be the Chief Guest at Asha’s Celebration of Learning 2015. This would give a huge boost to the programme. He promised all help and support, and it was decided that the function would be held in either March or April. His office would soon be in touch with a proposed date. Isn’t that exciting?
