CAREER COUNSELLING AND GUIDANCE
Hamraah Foundation’s counselling and Guidance centre encourages young ones to explore various available scholarship opportunities, both nationally and internationally. Regular nominations of students are sent through the Society for meritorious students. One volunteer student nominated by Hamraah Foundation got selected for 2015 Kennedy Lugar Youth Exchange and Study program.
The student Zaid Arshad, a class 11th Science student, studied and stayed in the USA for one year under the fully paid Scholarship program funded by US department of State. The essence of this program was ‘Stay and Study’ in a different cultural setting. Participants live with a host family experiencing home and family life that is in many ways different to their own culture and routine. The program is funded by the U.S. Department of State and sponsored by the Bureau of Educational & Cultural Affairs (ECA) to provide scholarships for high school students (15-17 years) from countries with significant Muslim populations to spend up to one academic year in the U.S. Students live with host families, attend high school, engage in activities to learn about American society and values, acquire leadership skills, and help educate Americans about their countries and cultures. Many such students get benefitted through the society each year through various such interventions
