Dimapur, May 30: Nagaland Adolescent Girls’ Club under the aegis of the Nagaland State Social Welfare Board organized a felicitation programme on the theme, “There is no substitute for hard work” today. The programme was held at Christ King Higher Secondary School, Kohima to felicitate the young members of NAGC girls for their success in HSLC and HSSLC examination this year. Altogether 129 students were awarded certificates of excellence from different NAGC schools.
Assistant State Coordinator SRCW, R. Juliana Medom exhorted the girls on the theme saying that “Hard work starts from the day you get your results. Your hard work starts towards a career that you want to go.”
She encouraged the students to excel in different avenues and choose not from their percentage but from their passion, for the kind of work that they would like to do in the future. She further encouraged the girls to make use of technology by surfing through the internet to know about the various careers they want to pursue.
Medom further said that the NAGC has been initiating programmes such as friendship fellowships, awareness drive on Child Sexual Abuse, programmes on career guidance, skill development, cleanliness drives and the Good Samaritan work, where the AGC girls go and take care of the elderly. She concluded by saying that she is very proud of all the girls and as they go along, whatever they become, once they are an AGC member they will remain as one.
Project Manager of National Minorities Development & Finance Cooperation, Asalie Alex Kruse, State Coordinator of Nagaland State Legal Service Authority, Akumla Longchari; DSP of State Vigilance Department, Kevisonuo Yhome and Bank Manager of HDFC, Lanu Jamir were the invitees for the programme.

The Associate Pastor of Freedom Church Kohima, Neivolieü Solo Jamatia pronounced the innovation prayer. A special song titled, ‘Sovereign Lord’was presented by Mezavinuo Pucho, AGC member of Mewi School and vote of thanks was given by the NAGC Coordinator, Medochünuo Chielie.
