Patna, Feb 12 (UNI) In a move that would help the underprivileged children pursue their educational goals, the Raj Bhawan here is set to 'adopt' 1000 Dalit children from Bhojpur and Bhagalpur districts to impart free education to them in the nearest schools and colleges.
According to official sources, the project is directly linked with the Community Development Programme (CDP) of the government and the first of its kind in the state.
''The objective behind the golden scheme is to help the deprived sections of society and bring them into the mainstream of development,'' sources said adding, ''by imparting free education to the Dalit children we can help them pursue a decent career in their areas of interest without bothering about the hinderance in the way to achieve their goal in life.'' The sources said the adopted children will be imparted education under the supervision of the Universities located in their respective areas and the Raj Bhawan will also provide them free food, clothes and other essentials to enable them continue their formal education. The scheme would also be extended to other districts later on, they added.
The sources further informed that the name for the golden project was yet to be suggested but the blueprint was ready and will be introduced soon in both districts.
