Doctor gains medical degree supported by Grameen Shikkha and GSRD Foundation

June 14, 2022

Grameen Shikka is part of the Grameen organizations created by Nobel Laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus. One of their missions, supported by GSRD Foundation, is to provide financial support to poor students, promoting mass education. We want to share some incredible results from a student who obtained a scholarship for higher education in Bangladesh.

Dr. Mukti Biswas completed his medical degree and internship at Dhaka Combined Military Hospital (CMH) & Kurmitola General Hospital in Dhaka in 2020. He recently joined the civil service and began his medical career at the Upazila Health Complex, Bagerhat, a place close to where he grew up, finally reaching his goal of becoming a doctor.

Mukti Biswas was born into a family with an extremely low income but he was a brilliant student. After gaining high grades throughout his studies in school, he was selected for an educational scholarship. Grameen Shikkha and the GSRD Foundation supported the scholarship and are proud of Mukti in pursuing his education, eventually leading to his fantastic medical degree.
