Mr. Laskar said,”I am associated with Asha for the last 5-6 years. As a representative of Asha, I have come to visit the project sites of Mukti. I have visited the sites like Kishalaya school, MIT where the students are provided job assistance by training them in computer courses, accounting courses etc, training centers where the women are trained to be self-reliant, 25 MCDF branches where approximately 1,000-1,500 women members are attached with Mukti etc. “Asha for Education” mainly supports MSS which I liked the most. Children who are needy and can’t afford tuition are taught here through a very nominal charge. Most are a volunteer or retired teachers. Out of 20 centers, I have visited 3-4 centers. I separately meet with the Madhyamik students. It is great to talk to the teachers and students. We are proud to be a supportive partner of Mukti. I thank Mukti and as well as Mr. Sankar Halder, the Founder-President of Mukti. I wanted to come here again.”
Mukti thanks Mr. Laskar and “Asha for Education” for sharing their precious time by visiting Mukti project sites.
