Indian HRD Minister, Mr Prakash Javadekar felicitates Asha High School Toppers
We are pleased to inform that 27 Asha high school toppers were felicitated by the Hon’ble Minister for Human Resource Development (HRD) Mr Prakash Javadekar at his residence yesterday, July 17, 2016.
Mr Javadekar praised the students for overcoming the struggles of living in a slum and successfully fighting all odds. Congratulating the Asha students for their achievements, the Hon’ble Minister also applauded the effort of Asha Society towards transforming the lives of slum dwellers for over two decades.
Felicitating each one of the toppers with books and stationeries, the Hon’ble minister appreciated the students for being humble despite the challenges they face.
“Some of these students come from a family with 12 members and only one room to live. They still manage to score well in class XII and secure admission in top colleges. Their fathers are either rickshaw pullers or labourers… These students need to be encouraged,” remarked Mr Javadekar.
We wholeheartedly appreciate the efforts made by the Hon’ble HRD Ministry for inviting Asha students and praising them for their hard work and brilliant results. Thank you!
