Jan 5, 2015 17:08 IST

    Delhi University (DU) took a noble initiative this New Year to gift education to those unprivileged students who are deprived of the real treasure of education through its ‘Gifted Education Mahaabhiyan’.

    Gifted Education Mahaabhiyan' is a special campaign that will be run by Delhi University to provide integrated learning to underprivileged students from classes V to IX of 90 MCD and NDMC schools in the capital. The programme being run by DU's Cluster Innovation Centre is funded at 1.8 crores. It will recognize talented students from underprivileged sections.

    'Gifted Education Mahaabhiyan' will be conducted in recommendation with the North Delhi Municipal Corporation and Municipal Corporation of Delhi. The programme will ensure the conduction of programmes on holidays so that regular studies of students are not disturbed.

    CIC Director Madan Chaturvedi said, “We conducted a test in 90 MCD and NDMC schools and have selected 76 students who belong to underprivileged community but are 'gifted' and have exceptional talent. We will now nurture them and run various workshops and counseling programmes to ensure holistic learning for them”.

    “After the selection, parents of the students will be called for counselling and then a team of experts including faculty and students of MSc, Maths Education programme will chalk out modules for them," Chaturvedi said further.

    The modules will run for six weeks and will include certain workshops, self-help tasks, counseling sessions and much more. The university has plans to take the initiative further to a national level.

    The programme is completely free for students and it will also provide pick and drop to the selected students. The sole motive is to nurture students beyond their routine academic studies and not put any extra burden on them.
