Human Chain By FFLV Girls

Dear Friends, While the whole of Uttar Pradesh is preparing for UP elections 2017, our girls of Sandipani Muni School formed a human chain from Mathura to Vrindavan along with the students of other school. It was an attempt to raise awareness about the importance of casting a vote.

The event was coordinated by the school principals and experienced FFLV staff headed by Partha Sarathi.
