Life Skill Training for 25 Swabhiman scholars and mentors
Role model for the younger children in their community, 25 meritorious girls were awarded scholarships by Smile Foundation under its Swabhiman programme after they completed their primary education with excellence, despite coming from difficult social and economic circumstances. They are either in high schools or colleges and have been receiving the scholarships for three years now. Professor Nisar Ahmed and Ms. Varsha Chanda, both experts in training, communication and capacity building, joined the Swabhiman team in conducting the training. Such trainings, workshops and exposure visits are conducted regularly for the Swabhiman scholars to help them hone their overall personality, along with enhancing their academic performance, to help open up maximum opportunities for them.
