Dr. Kiran was invited to the University of Queensland by Rongyu Li, Deputy Vice- chancellor and Vice-president of the University for a discussion on the partnership between the University of Queensland and Asha. Other senior officials such as Brett Lovegrove, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Global Partnership) of the University were also present.
There were exciting discussions around how the partnership could be further strengthened, given opportunities to many more students from Asha slums.
Asha’s first student to UQ, Amritesh was also present. He has set a wonderful example as the first student at UQ, scoring well and getting involved in many university activities.
Dr. Kiran thanked Mr. Rongyu Li and his team for their generous scholarship towards Asha students. Both organizations are enthusiastic towards getting the first female Asha student to UQ by October 2022. Thank you Rongyu Li, Brett Lovegrove and Tamara for your wonderful cooperation with Asha in transforming the lives of our slum students.
