1,000 Medha Students Certified
April and May are a time for celebration here at Medha. We honor our thousands of students who have successfully completed our program through an event we appropriately call अंतिम पग (Antim Pag). Antim Pag literally means ‘final step,’ but more importantly, it signifies a crossing over from who you were before to who you are now.
This year’s series of Antim Pag ceremonies kick-started at a Govt. College for Women in Karnal.
Supported by the central government’s ‘Beti Padhao, Beti Bachao Yojana’ scheme, 63 students graduated from the Medha program and celebrated in tremendous fashion with a dance performance on women empowerment and a skit on preparing for the job market through the Medha program.
Mr. Nishant Kumar, Additional Deputy Commissioner was in attendance, and spoke about the impact the Medha program had on the students, “Medha’s bootcamp helped our students get clarity about what they want to do in the future.”
After Karnal, three additional Antim Pag ceremonies were held at partner institutions in Gorakhpur, Kanpur, and Lucknow, where close to 1,000 students graduated and over 50 employer and academic partners attended.
The best part of the events for us is when students share their personal experiences, citing how Medha helped them overcome their fears of public speaking, gave them the confidence to face the world independently, and build a community of peers they can rely on in the years to come.
