The Delhi government's mentorship programme, "Desh ke Mentor," has named actor Sonu Sood as its brand ambassador. It is being hailed as one of the country's major programmes by the AAP administration. Over 3 lakh young professionals will be mentored under the Desk Mentor initiative, and 10 lakh Delhi Government School kids will be prepared for a bright future.
The software has so far been in pilot mode, but it will shortly be released. According to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, the pilot project has been operating for over a year and the government is just now introducing the programme pan-India following its success. In mid-September, the initiative will be formally launched.
The mentoring program's goal is to provide career guidance and counselling to students, particularly those from underprivileged families. The government will place well-educated individuals in contact with young children. These mentors will be responsible for 4-5 children and will not only talk to them about their future careers, but will also assist them in resolving their difficulties.
Sonu Sood will take a few children under his wing and mentor them for the future. He'll also make a pitch to educated Indians to help train more children. He is expected to reach tens of thousands of Indians. At least 10 lakh children and 3 lakh working professionals are expected to benefit from the initiative.
Soon reflected on his journey, saying, "When we were young, there were just two possibilities: engineering or medicine; now, students have a plethora of options. We constantly moan that nothing changes in the country...we frequently intend to do something after we have achieved something, but this initiative allows young to contribute to the country,” he added, urging youth to mentor children." “Isse badi deshbhakti nahi ho skti,” Sood remarked " (there cannot be biggest patriotic contribution than this).
“It is time to make education a mass movement,” Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal remarked when introducing the programme."
“Delhi govt has given a platform for all of you to come out... it is a fantastic opportunity,” Sonu Sood, the actor who rose to prominence for his philanthropic efforts during the epidemic, remarked. I consider myself fortunate to be able to contact thousands of pupils." “A country can only grow if the level of education increases,” he continued."
