The model school of Abinta Kabir Foundation has been inaugurated in Dhaka’s Vatara on 5th July. The esteemed Ambassador of the United States of America, H.E. Marcia Bernicat inaugurated the school.
In her speech, Marcia Bernicat said, “I have to say the foundation and everyone who is working for it, specially Abinta’s mom, Ruba and everyone is very fortunate because Abinta left this amazing road map of what her dreams were and what she wanted to see done.
“And maybe in addition to bringing more students it would be really interesting to bring students who are inspired to be teachers here so they could be interns and work with the children”, she added.
