“Desh ke Mentor” programme
“Desh ke Mentor” programme, which is to be launched by the Delhi Government, aims to promote mentorship for Delhi government school students by citizens who are successful in their own respective fields. The unique initiative is expected to witness nearly 3 lakh professionals guiding 10 lakh government school students.
The main objective of the “Desh ke Mentor” programme is the upliftment of economically vulnerable students by providing them with required guidance for achieving their aspirations. The initiative allows successful individuals to “adopt” one to ten government school students to help them excel in a specific field. The mentors are required to spare 10 minutes each week to guide students over the phone.
