RETO’s 3rd Smart Study Program commencing in June, 2015
RETO is going to commence its 3rd Smart Study Program from June 18, 2015. Smart Study Program aims to equip the students of underprivileged areas with equal opportunities to attend educational institutions of their choice. Furthermore, it aspires to enable students to broaden their horizon of what they can do with their lives and how they can become a lasting change in society.
It will be a two-month free-of-cost academic program where high-potential students from rural areas will be trained by accomplished young professionals from various fields/universities.
In particular, our Shades Student Body will visit 18 higher secondary schools, 3 colleges and 8 academies of Tando Jam, along with other academic institutions of adjacent Union Councils including Moosa Khatyan, Tando Qaiser and Sawan Khan Gopang. The team will also visit other outreach schools through our network of Shades Student Council in Tando Alayar, Mirpur Khas, Hyderabad and Jamshoro.
500 applicants will be shortlisted for an entrance test out of which top 50 students will be selected, on the basis of aptitude test, interview and personality test. These 50 students will then attend a two month rigorous training course during June-July 2015. The remaining students will be provided test material for free and one day counseling session on career choices and universities’ admissions.
