Dear Valued Member,
Greetings from My Himachal team. As most you know that this year once again, My Himachal sponsored Health Mela in association with medical staff and doctors of the Jibhi CHAI project (part of Lady Willingdon Hospital (LWH), Manali), local villagers and volunteers in the Upper Banjar Valley for the 4th year in a row successfully.
This year My Himachal has extended its efforts to provide scholarships to deserving students in Himachal under program “My Himachal Hope scholarships“. As this was our first year of scholarship program, we tried our level best to get the word across to all parts of Himachal with the help of media, friends and family. As a result we received around 205 applications for school level scholarships from various parts of Himachal. As this was our first year we could not expect better response than this. My Himachal team comprising of Mr. Anil Chandel, Mr. Vinay Jamwal and Mr. Anuj Butail developed a model to select most deserving applicants based on merit using marks obtained by the applicant in the lower class, participation in extra-curricular/community/social service activities, Family Income during last financial year, family size, BPL/IRDP family status and other factors that affect the means available to an applicant to continue their education in the current class.[/lang_en] Read the rest of this entry
