On Saturday, the one school, one IAS program was officially launched by Kerala Governor Arif Mohammad khan. This program aims at meritorious poor students and to provide them coaching services for the Civil Services or IAS examination free of cost.
To provide a free coaching facility to 10,000 poor meritorious students for the Civil services/ IAS examination and other competitive exams, a scheme was launched by the Kerala state Governor, Arif Mohammad Khan last Saturday.
With the support from the sponsors, Vedhik Erudite Foundation initiated this and while declaring the ‘ one school, one IAS’ program open, they stated that implementation of this scheme will enable meritorious yet financially restricted students to pursue their aspirations and will give them an opportunity to redecorate their plans and a way to execute them.
The first sponsorship declaration was made by Famous Actor Manju Warrier hailing the scholarship program by the Vedhik Erudite Foundation. The actor has adopted 10 girl students by fulfilling their coaching expenses for the CSE examination.
Talking over the scheme, Governor Arif Mohammad said that serving as a civil servant is a dream for many but lack of proper guidance or expenses of relocating to a bigger city to meet educational requirements adds on to the expenses making them hurdles in the way.
First, of its kind, the ‘one school, one IAS’ program aims to produce at least one IAS officer from all schools across the nation. Those will mainly be from government or aided schools coming from semi-urban or rural schools.
