Pune: GREAT Foundation, Pune founded by former Professor & HOD/HSS/IIT Bombay, Professor Dr. Ms. Viney Kirpal, is inaugurating its new program, Project Udaan on 24th July at 12.15 p.m. in Mahadji Shinde High School Wanowrie Bazaar for bright, needy, less privileged students studying in government schools/low income schools in Pune.
The project aims to train fifty Std. 9 students rigorously in Physics, Chemistry, Maths and Logical thinking every year for 4 years ( Stds 9 to 12) in partnership with Bakliwal Tutorials( set up by an IITian) and prepare them for pre-entrance tests to make it to the IITs/NITs/IISER/NDA etc. Most of the children belong to SC/ST/OBC/BC/EBC/Minority low income communities whose parental income is less than Rs. 2.5 lakh per annum and are first generation learners.
The vision is to create a Super 50 in Pune. Nearly 200 students have taken the Bakliwal entrance test this year out of which around 35 have been selected for the first batch which begins the 9 month training on 24 July. Training in spoken/written English and personality development will also be given to the children to create confidence and good communication skills in them.
GREAT Foundation Facilitators will provide additional support by monitoring the children’s homework while its Student Advisor will be in close touch with every student and their parents to support and mentor them on a regular basis. The entire training will be given free of cost.
The vision is to create a Super 50 in Pune and prepare these children for the IITs and other institutes of national importance to catapult deserving, less privileged students from school to high profile professional careers.
