Mukti believes that student life is the perfect time for the personality development of children, the time that will determine whether the student can become an exemplary person in the future. For strong future generations and a beautiful future, value education is equally as necessary as conventional education. With this belief, Mukti has started values education for the students. Enlightened by this education, Mukti TSS (Talented Student Sponsorship) students are engaging in various social activities.
In this edition of the newsletter, we introduce some TSS students who, along with their studies, are working for the vulnerable people of society in their spare time. Some of them are teaching underprivileged boys and girls without pay, some are supporting deprived students by distributing books and some are planting trees on their own initiative. Mukti applauds their efforts. Mukti wishes them good luck and hopes for a brighter future.
