Gangtok, Jan 18
A 13 member student-teacher delegation left for Gujarat Vidhyapith, as a part of Connecting Champions, a students’ exchange and exposure program, an initiative of 24hours Inspired. The student exchange program was flagged off by N.K Subba, Minister, UDHD & Food and Civil Supplies, Government of Sikkim. The Minister while flagging off the students congratulated them for being a part of the program and encouraged them to learn, expose themselves to a bigger world and come back as confident individuals of the future. He also stressed that meritorious students from the Maneybong-Dentam constituency have been selected to travel for the exposure program and encouraged them to further excel in school and in their lives.
Speaking about Connecting Champions, DewakerBasnet, Chief Learning Officer, 24hours Inspired stated, “This is the eight year running that we have had an opportunity to expose our students to various geographies and institutions across the country. The objective of Connecting Champions is to provide an opportunity for our students to travel to different states, stay in institutional campuses, learn about the culture of the place, showcase our culture and come back more exposed and confident to face the world outside. In the previous years, we have had the opportunity to take students to places including Kerala, Orrissa, Kolkata, Mangalore, Maharashtra and Gujarat. This year the students travel to Gujarat Vidhyapith, an institution started by Mahatma Gandhi in 1920. I am positive they will come back with great learning from the trip.”
The exposure program for the students is scheduled between 18th January 2019 – 29th January 2019.
