A Week in the Life of EMCI

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

Welcome to the first official blog post of Education Must Continue Initiative. We have a come a long way in less than a year since our inception. Many individuals and organizations have contributed in one way or another to our mission, without whom, we would be nowhere  near where we are now.
