3rd June 2017 was a day of celebration and appreciation, as Dr Kiran amiably welcomed the Asha High School toppers. A bunch of fifty-two bright enthusiastic teenagers filled the Asha Headquarter with ecstasy and pride.
Dr Kiran praised them for their outstanding dedication and hard work.Though many of the students struggle with their day to day life, yet they keep their heads high with such wonderful results.
“With such good marks, you all [Asha students] will definitely get into good colleges. Asha family will always be there to support and guide you,” assured Dr Kiran.
The communities of Mayapuri, Indira Camp, Bharat Industrial Worker Camp, Peeragari, Tigri and Sawda did an astounding job with the students scoring 90% and above wherein the remaining other communities like Seelampur, Chanderpuri, Jeewan Nagar, Kalkaji, Ekta Vihar, Kusumpur Pahari did brilliantly as well.
Dr Kiran spoke to each one of them enquiring about their percentages to what they want to pursue in graduation. Before Asha intervened, these youngsters had no vision or plan to peruse higher education, they would rather opt for distance programme or prefer to sit at home doing household chores. Since Asha came into their lives, it did not only bring opportunities for them, but also brought ‘hope’. Hope for a better future and a successful life.
Praising the Asha team for their relentless patience in grooming these students and guiding them to perform so well in academics, Dr Kiran shared, “I can’t thank you all [Asha team] enough. You all have been with me for years now, and without your support nothing would have been possible. What you all have done is extremely laudable.”
“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself” said John Dewey, this quote fits so well with the Asha high school toppers as they now have a dream and a clear road map to their destinations.
