Scholarship Orientation meetings held in partner Schools
The scholarship distribution process for the academic year 207-18 has now begun under our educational projects of Higher Education and Girl Child Education. For this, our Education team members went to all our 9 partner schools to speak to the parents of the students to give them an orientation on Mumbai Smiles Foundation, our educational projects and the scholarship process.
The orientation sessions began with the school coordinators, Ms. Geeta and Ms. Sheete giving a brief of the agenda of the orientation and introducing our field coordinators, Mr. Pravin and Mr. Kalidas to the parents. Following the introduction, Pravin and Kalidas interacted with the parents to explain to them the benefits, responsibilities, participation, involvement level for availing the scholarships for their children for the purpose of education as well as capacity building sessions.
The parents seemed very happy to hear about the benefits and events of our Educational projects since it provides them with a big financial ease with their children’s education as well as provides them with additional knowledge of other vocation and life skills through the various sessions conducted through the year. They asked a lot of question to understand the responsibilities attached to the projects as well and their feedback was very positive.
The sessions ended with distribution of the scholarship forms and very soon the selection process will begin after the submission of the same. We will update all of you, our dear readers, with the details of the selection process too, right her on our blog!
