Abhilasha Project 2014 - UPES

UPES launched an initiative called Project Abhilasha in 2004, through which it holds annual one-month camps for students from Uttarakhand's villages; these camps aim to coach and counsel village students in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics in order to prepare them for engineering entrance exams. The participants in these camps also get to engage in other activities like football, volleyball, cricket, badminton, yoga and so on. The government of Uttarakhand provides a list of students each year who should be eligible for these camps from the areas of Kumaon and Garhwall Eligibility is usually decided on the basis of students securing more than 75% in tenth standard. This project is helping students from areas that lack proper coaching and counselling facilities.
