Dr Kiran meets Mr Peter Varghese, the vice-chancellor of The University of Queensland

Hi everyone, it was such a pleasure for me to meet an old friend Peter Varghese and his wife Margaret today. Peter was the Australian High Commissioner to India in 2009, and it is he along with Liz Peak who helped launch Asha’s Internship Program in 2010. He is presently the Chancellor of the University of Queensland, and it was at his initiative that Amritesh was able to come for his Masters at UQ on a full scholarship. The engagement at the university is deepening, and the next student who is a girl from an Asha community, will be coming to do her Masters at UQ next year. Thank you so much Peter and Margaret for a wonderful evening spent together.
