Centre for Advanced Learning (CFAL), renowned for its commitment to educational excellence, proudly announces the continuation of its transformative Pragati Program into its second year. This ambitious initiative, designed to support bright students from financially weaker backgrounds, has been successfully conducted across all government and aided PU colleges in Dakshina Kannada, with the commendable approval & support of Dr. Anandh K, IAS, CEO of Zilla Panchayat, Dakshina Kannada.
In its first year, the Pragati Program marked a tremendous achievement by being recognized in the Chief Minister’s book “Best Governance Practice” for the year 2022. Building on this success, CFAL has again embarked on this noble journey, offering 40 deserving students a unique opportunity to receive free, comprehensive coaching for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) or the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET).
The process of selection is as follows: A circular was sent by Dr. Anandh K – CEO of Zilla Panchayat, DK & the Mr. Jayanna – DDPU of DK to all the Govt. & Aided PU Colleges of Mangalore regarding the Pragathi Program. An entrance exam was conducted for students of 1st PUC in Govt. PU Colleges & Aided PU Colleges of Mangalore. The entrance exam was based on 10th std. Maths & Science curriculum. Around 100 students were shortlisted & given a 2nd assignment of writing a statement of purpose along with capturing & verifying all the other economic details of the students’ family. Based on this SOP, 40 students were selected for Pragathi Program 2023.
The heart of the Pragati Program lies in its mission: to bridge the gap in educational opportunities. By providing free education and study materials, CFAL ensures that financial constraints do not hinder talented students from achieving their dreams. This year, the selected candidates began their transformative journey in September 2023, embarking on a two-year journey of learning and growth.
At the helm of this program is Mr. Vijay Moras, the dedicated program coordinator. His vision and guidance have been instrumental in shaping the Pragati Program. “Our goal is not just to educate but to empower. We believe in nurturing the dreams of these young minds and providing them with the tools to excel,” shares Mr. Moras.
CFAL’s commitment to this cause is clearly demonstrated by its substantial investment in the Pragati Program, which will support 40 students over a two-year period. This significant financial contribution highlights CFAL’s steadfast dedication to promoting educational equality. As the program advances, CFAL eagerly anticipates observing the progress and accomplishments of these students as they embark on their journey towards academic success and a more promising future.
